Excellent explanation! I’m doing a drill with the boys tonight that involves tight turns and will emphasize leading with stick and inside skate followed by crossover. Thanks!
Details! Details! Details!
That’s why I find your videos great! Teaching proper technique from edges, weight distribution, where your stick should be, and the common errors.
Great work Kevin!
Great video. We call them “Escape Turns”! IMHO Matt Duchene has one of the best I’ve seen.
