Yes that's good advice too! Exaggerating the movement. I used to think after I got the initial scraping down, turn and "sit" as in turn your skates 90 degrees, lean away from the stopping direction (to angle the edges into the ice), then "sit" by bending your knees AND YOUR BUTT in order to stop. That makes you better balanced, exerts more force into the stop (quicker stop), and then gets you ready to explode into another direction.
