OK, great friend, you have already learned the basic movements of roller skating, only the last step is left, do you know how to stop? This action is also very important, if you don’t practice it well it will hurt your body, which is a bad ending.
Practice stopping with me.
1) With the help of fixed objects
Slide toward the wall or any reasonably immobilized object, using your arm for cushioning while touching them. Suitable for low speed situations (when touching the wall, remember to turn your head so you don’t slam your face into the wall). Pay attention to learning to use your arms as a buffer (like doing push-ups while standing) You can practice this: put on roller skates and stand 1 or 2 feet away from the wall, now lean towards the wall and support with your hands. You should bounce slightly, as long as you don’t hit your head against the wall. The faster you move against the wall, the lesser the bounce. The human flesh brake will be more effective, pay attention to choose a familiar and skilled companion, and warn you when approaching him.
2) Brake pad brake
For beginners, this method is also relatively easy to use, but after the level is improved, the brake pad may become an obstacle. For example, you may stumble when taking a step… Step out of the right leg first, while the toes are off the ground, and the heel is pressed down. The center of gravity should be between the legs. At first, it may be slightly behind your feet. The key point here is to do the movement with a straight back and bent knees
During the sliding process, place the weight on the right foot, bend the right knee and lift the left foot and place it horizontally behind the right foot to form a “T” shape, then rub the ground with the sides of the four wheels of the left foot to slow down the sliding speed until it stops sliding. . Conversely, you can also use the left foot to support the right foot horizontally. During the whole process, the body weight is mainly on the roller skates for women that keep sliding. At high speeds, more pressure can be placed on the dragging foot behind you, allowing you to stop for a short time. Remember that most of the body weight is still on the front foot at this time.
4) Emergency stop with both feet
Not everyone can do it, it’s the kind of sudden change of the foot to 90 degrees, ask a master, it takes a certain amount of time and courage to practice this action.
