i dont think there is a right or wrong way to do it and some people are taught different ways. i was taught by a russian guy so i was taught more of a russian style of skating
Like I said, it also depends on how fast you're already going when you start the turn. If you enter the turn at almost full speed, then your method makes perfect sense to me.
