hi I'm Kate and this is a figure-skating tutorial for starter skaters this video is ideal if you've never skated or have only skated a few times elements have grouped in this level will be performed and explained in order to allow you to identify the moves and even try them yourself the moves in this level are forward stroking basic stop swizzles and backwards skating let's begin this is forward stroking but to begin it's generally easiest to do this marching it's the same march as you would office much like imitating a soldier and it should get you comfortable with being on the ice and standing up once you can do this you'll progress to more of a glide and slide in which you will march but instead of just picking up your feet you'll push them a little behind as you go forward and once you've gained an amount of speed you're comfortable with you can just glide a key tip you can use while skating is always having your knees slightly bent a slight constant knee bend will provide you with power but most importantly it will help you keep your balance as you progress further you will be doing forward stroking for this you can hold your arms out like this and stroke by bending one leg and pushing off with the other it's important to push off with your whole leg and to not pushing off with the topic this is done repetitively in a series of bending and pushing here are the key points from forward stroking start by marching have a constant and slight knee bend progress to glide and slide then you'll progress to advanced forward stroking Noto put pushes and bend and push now on to the basic way to stop this is called a snow plow stop when you are skating and need to stop you simply use one foot I typically use my right and push it out in front and to the same side of you this needs to be forceful otherwise you won't stop you'll simply slow down but also gradual if it's extremely sudden you may knock yourself over stopping like all aspects of skating takes practice but it is crucial and you will get it if you struggle with stopping it helps to hold on to a wall or board like this and practice the motion of stopping this helps you to get the feel of it now I'll show you swizzles the concept is simple with both feet and at the same time push out and push in you can begin in a standstill or while gliding if you want more speed and momentum from a standstill you can position your feet with toes pointed about halfway out and push yourself forward keeping your feet on the ice once you get out wide with your toes pointed more in you just push in and start over swizzles are just pushing out and in out in out in now to the final move backwards skating it might seem tricky but like all figure skating moves it gets better and easier with practice the easiest way to begin backwards skating is through backwards whizzes all you do are fourpence wizzle's in reverse so start standing backwards and point your toes about halfway in now push out and once your feet are parallel or your heels are pointing towards each other you push in and repeat I'll say it again swizzles are just out and in out and in once you can do backward swizzles move on to a more advanced way back when skating in which you do alternating half swizzles they really are backwards whistles except your feet are just taking turns left typical right half oval left right left right okay those are all the start of movies I have thanks for watching and I hope this video helped you

    I can not agree that marching is the way to start learning, on the contrary. The moment one is on the ice, one forgets walking and starts sliding.
