I'm unfamiliar with power skating but i cant imagine lessons hurting. And damn i just pulled off a nice run on sentence.
Whoever gave you the advice on powerskating is full of crap. If the clinic is run as it's supposed to be, you'll get a lot out of it and you'll be dragging your butt when each session is over. You learn to use your skates to your advantage, your edges, balance, the whole package. Any of the clinics I've been to, you wear full equipment, sticks included. Enjoy your new found sport.
