Lotus- Learning to skate the right is never wrong, I am sure there are allot of very simple tips a good skating coach can give you that would help you.

But, its also really important to skate, skate and then skate some more. I remember roller skating for the first time, I could have killed myself. Completly diffrent then dooing it on the ice. You need to get the feel for the baldes and the ice, thats whats most important.

I don't know how it works, but if you can choose between quality (Laura Staam) or quantity (just ice time), Id defenitly go with quantity.
