Emergency braking is very strict on the quality of roller skates

The principle of T-stop is: the friction force provided by the wheel to stop the skater. During the movement, one foot drags behind, it is almost in a vertical position with the sliding foot. Bend your knees a little and drag the wheels of your back foot on the ground. When doing the action, emphasize the concept that the focus of the drag is on the heel, not the first wheel of the skate. If you drag the front wheel too much, it will only make you spin. Throughout the process, your body weight is primarily on the (front) foot that is keeping the glide. If it is at high speed, you can only stop in a short time by putting more pressure on the shoe behind you. Remember that most of your body weight is still on your front feet at this point.

Note: A particularly noteworthy phenomenon is that T-stops, or any method of braking with wheel drag (such as dragging the front wheels), tend to produce “smoothed wheels”. If your wheels don’t roll at all when braking, there can only be one result in the end, and that is your wheels being ground flat. Out-of-round wheels will greatly affect a smooth ride. Your wheels are just scrapped like that.
This action is basically similar to T-stop, the difference is that now you are only dragging a front wheel. This action does not require your dragging foot to be perpendicular to the forward direction. You can drag the front wheel of the roller skate in an arc relatively freely. And, your front wheel can freely choose the angle when it touches the ground. (If there are old wheels, the toe position is a good home for them to avoid damaging the good wheels.)

The advantage of Toe-drag compared to T-stop is: it wears only one of your wheels, and more importantly, you have better steering control when braking. Even if the front wheel is rolling while dragging, that’s can make you stop. Toe-drag allows you to stop at fairly high speeds. However, since it only uses a front wheel brake, it has a longer stopping distance than a footbrake or T-stop.

-stop/snowplow (V-brake)

In low-speed skating, you can keep your heels together in a V shape (for backslides), or your toes together in a V shape (for straight skating), and your roller skates will stop you after they collide. This may cause you to fall in the direction of the slide (depending on your speed at the time), so you have to lean forward or backward to compensate.
