Figure Skating Education: Magic Three Turns (Chris Conte)

Chris Conte discusses “3 turn magic” which is a system for developing walk-throughs of all the jumps.  In this video, Chris shares important tips by working directly with a skater.  The references to “cat and mouse” and “baby bear” will be more clear after future videos.

These drills are outstanding for developing skater alignment, stability and control.

    Chris G Hi Chris, My name is christophe and my soon to be wife tiffany Sfikas had tell me how good you are, but i now know it for sure. One of my student struggled with axel (who doesn t)... He could actually do a double better than a single. Over rotating and "free leg" open being the problem, i found your video and thought What a clear way to get him to understand Buttom line is: He lands them now properly! Thanks for sharing this genius exercise, hope to meet you one day...

    Tiba I like the fact you start from the basic and develop, something that most of the time is ignored.

    Brigitte Laskowski These are exactly the drills I need. I bookmarked the page and will show my coach Vern Taylor these drill, which I desperately need to be doing once I am back on the ice from having to heal my broken left foot in April. That's right no competing at Adult Canadians this year in Oakville Ontario.
