Warm-up before roller skating is also essential

Standing: Put on roller skates and protective gear first, and then stand up. After standing, you can try to let the practitioner lift both arms from the side to shoulder height, with the left heel against the inner side of the right foot, and stand in a T shape.

This is the most basic roller skating posture and the first test of the practitioner’s courage.

Stand up by pulling the practitioner’s hand from the front, or have the practitioner stand holding onto an object.

But you must not hold him up from the back of the practitioner, otherwise the practitioner will lean back, which is not conducive to grasping the essentials of the movement.

Stepping includes steps such as standing in place, side stepping, and stepping forward.

Before stepping forward, it is best to take a few minutes to warm up, for example, you can do 15 high leg raises, stepping and stomping in place, mainly to enhance the strength of the practitioner’s legs and prepare for the start of sliding.

Then step forward with your feet from the T-shaped to the outer eight-shaped, and shift the center of gravity to the left leg and the right leg to slightly lift and lower.

Then shift the weight to the right leg, and lift and lower the left leg slightly.

Repeat the exercise, gradually increasing the speed.

Glide: After you have practiced walking on foot for a while, you can start learning to glide.

This should not be too hasty, it is best to wait for the practitioner to step and become proficient.
Some practitioners become proficient quickly, while others can practice for hours.
The essentials of the sliding action are to form a lunge with the left foot in front, push the right foot out to the side, tilt the upper body slightly forward, stretch the arms flat and shoulder height, and place the weight on the left foot.
Then retract the right foot to the inside of the left foot, slide the right foot forward, push the left foot out to the back and outside, and at the same time move the center of gravity from the left foot to the right foot, and retract the foot to the inside of the right foot.
Also, just like when we test our driver’s license, cornering is also important.
When turning, notice that the center of gravity drops and falls on one foot.
The coach reminds: When skating, the lift of the roller skates for women must be clean and neat, and the kick out is short and powerful, and the explosive force is strong.
After the child has basically mastered skating, they can participate in some group games to increase their interest in learning roller skating, such as squatting and picking up objects, placing some toys beside the practitioner or at a distance, asking the practitioner to find the toy, and then squat down to put the toy Pick it up and glide to the basket ahead


There are also games such as driving a train and eagle catching chickens.

Stopping: In sliding, sometimes it is necessary to stop sliding in time, so when children initially master the basic movements of sliding, they must learn how to stop sliding

The stopping method is divided into: mid-cut method, A-shaped stop, T-shaped stop, and emergency stop at turning.

The coach reminds: children can use the mid-cut method, which is an easy method to master, that is, the feet are parallel, the foot with the brake is pushed forward, the toes are slightly upward, and the brake is ground to the ground. , the harder you press the brakes to the ground, the faster you can stop.

Remember that the center of gravity must be lowered and kept between the feet, not too forward or too backward.

Turning emergency stops requires good roller skating balance ability, and it is not recommended for children to learn.
