What is deliberate practice?
If you’ve ever watched the movie Karate Kid and the teachings of Mr. Miyagi, this is what deliberate practice looks like, it is repetitious movements over and over again, then we apply them in a real world scenarios such as skating down the street, and needing to come to a stop or make a turn from forward backwards.
What we’re are doing with deliberate practices is building muscle memory and nuro plasticity, to allow your body to make the functional movements (with skates on) you need to be able to execute movements to allow you to;
- be lateral on rollerskates,
- stop on rollerskates
- slow down on rollerskates
- turn corners on rollerskates
- turn around from forward to backwards on rollerskates,
- spin on rollerskates
- Skating on 1 foot, and much more,
All this is accomplished through highly targeted deliberate practices and practice.
Learn To Skate Online is for skaters looking to get into recreational roller skating, dance skating, skating for cardio, trail skating, figure skating, speed skating or roller derby.
