He is also a “Christmas tree”. If you know how to ski, this movement is familiar to you – it is similar to skating. Place your feet in the third position so that the heel of one foot rests on the inside of the foot of the other. The knees should be slightly bent.
Spread your arms out to the sides, keep your back straight and push off the ice by straightening your supporting leg. The direction of movement depends on the edge of the skate on which you slide. If you rely on the inside, then when you move with your right foot, you will go to the left, and if you rely on the outside, you will go to the right. Slide forward, and then repeat the same movement with the other leg.
It’s not enough just to ride, you also need to slow down correctly – preferably not into a snowdrift or a person who is moving towards you. Skaters have a lot of braking methods in their arsenal, but for starters, it’s worth mastering the simplest one.
It can be learned in combination with the Christmas tree. During the step, bring the free leg forward and turn the toe in and the heel out. The blade should not slip, but rather cling to the ice. Another way for inexperienced skaters is to spread their legs wider and turn their toes inward while moving. So you can slow down if the speed is not very high.
This is one of the basic steps of figure skating. To make an arc, stand in the third position and slightly bend your right leg. Spread your arms to the sides at shoulder level, and keep your head straight – you need to look not at the ice, but in front of you.
Push off with your left foot and transfer your body weight to your right. Slide forward, alternating legs alternately so that the footprint on the ice resembles a circle. During movement, the supporting limb is not fully straightened and remains soft and springy.
The arcs are divided into external and internal, depending on which edge of the skate you are sliding on. It is better to start with the inner arcs, and when you learn how to confidently balance, move on to the outer ones.
A simple but quite effective element that any beginner can do. “Three” is a turn on one leg, after which a trace in the form of the number “3” is left on the ice.
Push off with your right foot and slide forward in an arc with your left. The knee of the supporting limb is slightly bent, and the weight of the body can be shifted to the center of the circle that you describe on the ice. Before turning, straighten your knee, raise your arms to shoulder level and first turn your upper body, and then complete the movement with a turn of the pelvis and legs. You will finish the element by moving backward.
