When looking at the best skaters you will notice that their skating looks almost effortless. There are great skaters in hockey but more noticeable is the amazing skating technique of figure skaters. Their skating efficiency, speed and extreme control over their movements on the ice are remarkable. In contrast to many hockey players that compensate poor technique with a high frequency, figure skaters strive to make each stride to perfection and their movements are characterized by being smooth and controlled. I encourage you to be inspired by the figure skaters and have the patience to do things differently, work on the details to make perfection out of each movement.
