The Bill Begg Style Practicing Method

BONT TVBONT TV に Bill Begg 監修ビデオが公開されました。第1作と書いてあるのでシリーズ化されるようです。特に Bill Begg と断らなくても良いのですが、デモが Nicole Begg だから育てたコーチでもある親の名前を付けました。アクセス状況によっては、将来、このようなビジュアル系スケーターのDVDが販売されるかも知れません。( ビデオは全10巻と判明)

The Video, coaching from Bill Begg and performing Nicole Begg, updated on BONT TV. This video is edited by Niki Neck and it's the 1st video in series. Then it seems that this series continues.
Hi Rollers,

There will iniatially be a series of 10, we will break down Technique into small size segments, eg Position, recovery, Cornering, Arms, so that specific areas can be honed in on, the first skill drills are just a set of basic drills, that help reinforce, some areas of your skating.

eg - you must fully understand & be able to feel inside & outside edges, as for the higher speed techniques, edges are an important factor.
Then the elbow on knee & hand under chin, forces you to get in a power position, where you get a full extension push, with all the wheels on the ground.

Iniatially when developing good Technique, it pays to over exaggerate to stess the point, then when you are capable of doing more than is required, you can come back to whats practical & comfortable.

With all technically good skaters, at one moment, the back skate disappears out of frontal, with the loop recovery.
Now we View some Double Push Action, which is renowned for some gravity defying positions.
Wayne displays a very deep outside edge, with the wheel support way past the outside of the body, motion keeping him upright.
Just a couple of behind views of interest, but do not tell us much at all, except some awkward positions..
