I've been skating since I was two, but I learned a lot from power skating classes in my '30's.

Some classes are better than others, though. I took some that had instructors who were just about guys charging around as fast as they could. And by the end of the 8 week session some guys were still having to slam into the boards to stop. Which is fine for fitness, but notsomuch for becoming a better skater.

Others, that I found much more valuable, were about working on edges and skating technique.
