Super excited today to have Randy Clark as our guest coach. Randy is one of our senior coaches at Lilac City Figure Skating Club. He currently coaches some of our most advanced skaters. Randy has over 30 years of coaching experience and has coached skaters of all levels, some of which who have competed at Jr. Nationals, US Nationals and International competitions.
Randy is one of our more "technical" coaches. I was surprised during our class to see him giving us some tips on presentation with head and arm movement!! Today's video is one of my longer videos, but worth watching and listening to. I know I will be viewing it over and over.
Things I learned today: (No discredit to all my other coaches.. but today a few things sunk in)
1) point your toes on edges - upward toe picks are UGLY
2) follow your arm movement with your head and eyes
3) use extra knee bend and ankle strength to push into the ice
4) stiff = unbalanced
