Took me about 1-2 years. First year I played hockey on average about 3-4 times a week, so I picked up the natural movements quickly. But I didn't learn how to skate backwards well until after the 1st year. I remember how bad I was. Never saw video of myself back then, but I can only imagine how god awful I must have looked when I was skating. My dad took some video of me during my league game and I noticed I am a very adept skater now. Not necessarily the fast, but very fluid, patient, and agile. Those are 3 words I'd never thought I'd be able to use for myself when I first started playing 6 years ago.
