This is the mental equivalent of balancing a penny on the end of your finger. The penny naturally wants to topple over unless you exert an effort to keep it balanced. Students are coached on how to place your feet, bend your knees, and maintain a squat position. Safety Every activity comes with risks that. Serious accidents can occur while skating, from collisions to tripping and falling, especially for new beginners. It’s advised that beginners first work with a trained instructor to understand the fundamental tips and different skating forms that are crucial to your safety, while still having fun. Control Ready? Steady? Go! Duck feet and the plow require a lot of control and can easily get messy if you lose that control. This is where your muscles do a lot of the work. From transitioning into shifting your body to alternating on skates. Collision with other skaters and loss of control are the main factors leading to injury. It’s important to know your drills and get in tune with your stance to gain your confidence by putting your skills into practice.
