Milan Stops & Slides (Level 1) Sat 4 May 2024 @ 1200-1400

The most important of ALL skills on inline & roller skates is how to stop and every skater should have several, high functioning stopping methods in their repertoire (to avoid accidents and injuries). This workshop looks at the easier stops, while “Stops, Slides & Slopes Level 2” looks at the more challenging methods.

The majority of skaters do not realise that by neglecting their stopping methods they not only increase their risks of falls and injuries but also reduce their learning of other skills such as speed skating, crossovers and street skating.

What you'll learn;

  • Plough Stop (2 versions)
  • T-Stop (so that it actually stops you)
  • Turn Stops (various options)

This 2 hr workshop is NOT suitable for beginners, who should focus 100% on mastering the Heel Brake Stop or Toe Stop Drag before any other methods.

Milan Backwards & Transitions Sat 4 May 2024 @ 1600-1800

This lesson is for those new to backward skating or those who have taught themselves but skipped the basics and are stuck on more complicated backwards moves.

This class will reveal your “one-sidedness” if you are already skating backwards and how to equalise this natural unevenness.

In this workshop you’ll learn;

  • Several propulsion techniques
  • How to steer correctly
  • How to safely glide backwards
  • How to stop backwards (2 methods)
  • Mohawk Transitions (forwards to backwards and backwards to forwards).

This compact course will give you content that will keep you busy training for months but with a clear path to backwards proficiency.

PLEASE NOTE: This group lesson is NOT appropriate for beginner level skaters.

Milan Stops & Slides (Level 2) Sun 5 May 2024 @ 1000-1200

This class will look at the more challenging sliding stops and how best to combine different stopping methods for maximum efficiency and safety on the flat and on slopes.

What you’ll learn;

  • Powerslide (from a forwards entry using your favourite transition and favourite sliding leg)
  • Soul Slide (the ‘forwards powerslide, used by the downhillers for a reason).
  • Powerstop (or Turn stop variations)
  • Magic Slide (for those with a successful pre-requisite Soul Slide)
  • How to control your speed (for future use on slopes) by combining different stopping skills and how to come to a complete stop in an emergency.

Milan Stride & Fitness Optimizer Sun 5 May 2024 @ 1300-1500

Every skater spends MOST of their time on skates JUST SKATING! However, if your skating stride lacks fundamental technique, you will not get the fitness benefits that skating offers and you may even create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’ particularly if you skate distances (e.g. ankle, knee, hip pains from persistent pronation on an inside edge). What you’ll learn;

  • An efficient push.
  • A correct, comfortable glide, in terms of edges, balance and cadence.
  • A regroup that doesn't V.
  • The Stride Training Sequence. The drill to keeps your stride on track for months & years to come.

“This class transformed my skating. I never knew how many things I was doing wrong. Feels great to be on the right path now and I understand what a workout skating should be if you’re doing it right.” - Analise (46) Belgium

“OMG! Since I started doing the drills from this class my stride is much more relaxed, my form is better and my back and knee are not hurting anymore. Thank you so much." - Chris, UK

This workshop does not cover the Double Push (although most skaters fail with the double push because their normal fitness stride lacks the correct foundations). This class is an essential prerequisite for the Double Push however.

PLEASE NOTE: This group lesson is appropriate for every level of skater except beginners.

Milan Urban Street Skating Skills Sun 5 May 2024 @ 1600-1800

Skating on streets and pavements is challenging and too many skaters embark on this journey without the necessary skills to keep them safe and efficient. In this class you'll learn;
  • How to accelerate efficiently (so you have the speed to safely roll over surface obstacles).
  • How to skate over rough surfaces.
  • How to handle surface obstacles, bumps, metal covers & cracks.
  • How to use your best stopping methods in emergency situations.
  • How to skate up and down kerbs safely (so you can easily swap from road to pavement and vice versa).
  • How to safely skate over train tracks.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to attend this class you:
1. Need to have at least 2 functional stopping methods and be able to do a rolling scissor position for several metres.
2. Need to have completed either "Stops & Slides 2" and/or "Stride/Fitness Optimizer”. You cannot street skate safely if you can’t stop or push, glide & control your edges.
