Turning, Stopping, and Pivoting


Turning, Stopping, and Pivoting

 

Turning, Stopping, and Pivoting are all achieved through the use of your edges, weight transfer and crossovers. Your chest should be upright and your shoulders should be square. Full extension from the heel of your blade when accelerating out of turn, stop, or pivot is paramount! Following up with a full return, picking up your foot and placing it directly under you, is of equal importance! When stopping; a full understanding of how to utilize your edges, while maintaining proper body positioning, is also of great importance!
