Hi I?m Simone Fisher and I’m here at Clearwater
Ice Arena in sunny Clearwater Florida, on behalf of Expert Village, o k where going
to start out with the left foot outside 3-turn and the way you would like to begin this is
to just learn the arm positions by doing the turn on two feet. You want to skate in a circle
on a half circle, that?s why I’m using the red line to help give you a visual idea of
where to go. You?re going to start out by just pushing off gliding on two feet twisting
to the left and untwisting to the right. That teaches you the actual motion of the shoulders
against the hips to get started. The next step you want to do once you got that under
control your going to push off and go on to one foot, repeat the twisting, and untwisting,
checking the edge coming out of the turn by holding your shoulder back against your hip
and keeping your free leg in very closely. That would be the left foot outside 3-turn.
Where going to repeat the same thing in the other direction. Starting again out on two
feet, twisting into the circle and then releasing and coming out of the turn. Holding the checked
position, after the turn then you want to repeat it once you have control over that
on one foot. Twist into the turn make sure you curve, and check coming out. Holding the
free foot close to the heel of the skating foot.

    The biggest tip of all is to NOT watch your feet. If you look down, you will go down !!

    So you start out on a forward outside edge and the turn and end up on your back inside edge? I'm probably too much of a beginner to try this, I'm just learning to do a circle on a forward outside edge… But still; maybe some day 🙂

    Nice, clear video, but I can't help laughing at the title:
    "How to Ice Skate : How to Do a Left Foot Outside 3 Turn on Ice Skates".
    Of course if you are Ice Skating, you WILL be wearing ice skates….lol!
    I think they call that a tautology….

    @freestyleice
    Do you just press your weight on the top of the blade, or do you lift the rest of the blade off the ice slightly?

    @mishoven an ice-skating friend of mine has told me that you start on the outside edge. You push off, then bend your knees to pivot, pivot, and end up on the back outside edge. You may want to check with a teacher about this as I may be wrong, but this is what I remember being told.

    I've been struggling with 3 turns for ages and finally there! Re comment previously, it's correct, but when you come out of the turn you should be on your back INSIDE edge.Def recommend private lessons, as it may be just a small thing you're doing wrong and with the right coaching it suddenly clicks- with practice of course!

    @christianmarykate im not sure if you noticed but i dont see or hear the word "advanced" … and she says the same thing in every video because its an opening! people like to have the same opening on every video they make because then their video will be easily recorgnised by other viewers, if these video's arnt to your satifaction .. THEN LOOK FOR SOMETHING ELSE… and what kind of person says Jeez? aint that abit childish?

    3 turns are easy once you learn them. Wish she do one on the forward inside 3 turns

    Hi, I have been learning from you videos some of the techniques of ice skating, it has helped a lot… Thanks :)… Just a request, can you please post some videos on jumps. I don't want to see advance jumps that that done by experts. But basic jumps on how to get a lift off from the ice, best practice, body position, drills etc. So I can remove the fear falling when jumping and take up some advance jumps.
