Absolutely it does. Skating is a difficult thing to master but as everyone else says it takes repetition. You are going to get frustrated, you are going to fall but you just have to stick with it. Just like any other skill, the reward and the feeling you will have when you make that first clean stop is priceless.

Once that happens you will get a huge boost of confidence and be off to the races.
