Six Stages of Adult Skating

Updated and Illustrated version of this post.

1. Disbelief
"You want me to do what with my foot and put it where while I'm doing this with my arms?"

2. Disorganization
"Okay, I got my foot there, now why can't I do that at the same time?"

3. Denial
"I don't care what coach says, nobody over the age of 9 can learn this."

4. Deliberation
"Well, maybe if I alter my hip position, thus, and add a little upper body swing...."

5. Dominate the Move!

6. Disbelief
"What does coach mean it's not perfect? Coaches, they're never happy."

Starting after Thanksgiving I'll be doing a series on skating protection, starting with "The Pad in the Hat". Hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday!
