Post Re: Ice Skating Tips
Hello friends

Ice skating enthusiasts use skates with steel blades to slide on indoor or outdoor ice rinks. The first ice skates were made in 3000 BC. Honed animal bone was used in making these skates and it was attached to the feet with leather straps. In fact, the origin of the word 'skates' is Dutch, which means 'leg bone'. Iron blades were first made and used in Holland in 1250 AD. It garnered popularity as a winter sport among the Europeans, in the 1600s and 1700s. The International Skating Union is the authoritative body in skating, which oversees all the international ice skating competitions.

Thanks for all friends

Ice skating enthusiasts use skates with steel blades to slide on indoor or outdoor ice rinks. Patience and a determined effort are a must, while learning ice skating. Initially, many people find it difficult to balance on skates and the time taken to get used to using them, is different for each individual. Therefore, never give up, and give it a good try. Learning the first moves can always be crude; but never get discouraged. Regular practice will ensure graceful and deft movement.

Hi

Here are what we can share on Ice skating Tips:

a. How to fall: Falling is unavoidable especially for new learners in ice skating but falling can be risky at the same time. Thus it is valuable to learn how to minimize the risk of injury when falling. Some good tips would be to wear ice skating protective gear set such as helmet, wrist, elbow, knee and hips pads to minimize the impact of the injury.

b. Getting professional guidance on ice skating if you are a beginner is the most important tips of all. This is the only way where the beginner can learn how to fall without injuring himself, how to stand still and how to skate properly.

c. If you are skating outside the ring, making sure that the ice is thick enough to support your weight is some basic pre-skating checking to safe-guard your safety.

d. Learning how to make an abrupt stop swiftly is one of the key tips for every ice skater - this is called the Hockey Stop. Then there are T-Stop, Snowplow Stop, and also backward T-Stop and other kinds of stopping tips which one gets to learn to be a good ice skater.

e. Wear warm, comfortable clothing and appropriate socks made of microfiber or synthetic are the best for ice skating. Keep in mind that the rink's temperature is 50-60 degrees, therefore a light jacket, sweater, windbreaker is advisable. Get some gloves or mitten made of wool or acrylic type is best.

Thanks
