How to Ice Skate : How to do Forward Strokes on Ice Skates


Hi, I’m Simon Fisher and I’m here at the Clearwater
Ice Arena in Clearwater, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village. Hi, my name is Bill Shanks
I’m going to demonstrate for you forward stroking. Now when you are doing forward stroking it
is very important keep your arms, chest and body up and straight. No looking down. If
your whole body follows your eyes, if you look down and can cause you to fall forward
over your toe pegs. When you are doing forward stroking it is very important that you do
not use your toe pegs. You are going to use the side of your blade to push. Here I would
demonstrate. Once again I’m Bill Shanks thank you.
