On The Edge... Again
Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.
It has now been 8 years since I got back on the ice. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1600 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Adult Drop In Coffee Club 3-24-17
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
