To make a long story short, it involved do a lot of 'fifth position' work when talking to my bosses to stretch out my hip. Yes, you have to work your hips to get to here:
Because of the Polar Vortex Express, I haven't skated in a week. I get on the ice and warm up. Three turn here and there, good side mohawk...take a breath...bad side mohawk.
It's sort of like a tiny little hop from one foot to the other. I practice it using the Five Minute Rule, then Miss Bianca is ready for my lesson.
I show her my good side mohawk. It flows like a river.
Miss Bianca smiles. "That very, very good. Really excellent." She says.
Then I show her my 'bad side' mohawk. It actually works! I have a tiny bit of flow! "It's a beginner mohawk," I say. "But it's a start."
|Yes! Two levels above beginner!|
