My problem child is my right FI Mohawk.
My coach and I have spent the last two lessons working on it. We both know what's wrong with it; I can't externally rotate my left free leg so that I bring the heel of the left foot to the arch of right foot without falling backwards on my skating foot.
And why has this simple element been such a problem? You're not going to believe this, but I have misaligned hips and I'm in the sport where good hip alignment is necessary. This reminds me of when I used to fly airplanes (SEL) until some flight surgeon told me I have no depth perception. Really? Is there any sport I can be any good at?
So we've developed a way to resolve the regular RFI Mohawk. I have to hold my free leg in line behind the skating foot: then as I bring the free foot forward, there's this two to three inch space where I can externally rotate that free foot and execute a half decent mohawk.
If I miss that 2-3 inch space where I should rotate my left foot--all hell breaks loose.
But now that I've made so much progress on my bad side regular mohawks, my coach, Miss Bianca has decided to make me do swing mohawks--on my bad side....
