Indeed, he probably wasn't so worried about your side-to-side ankle bend, more that you were actually initiating a turn instead of initiating a stop. NO TURNING

Don't worry, turning instead of stopping is what most newer skaters do. I'm sure your roller habits make it an even harder habit to break, but you will break this habit eventually with practice.
