One-foot stops - outside edge with inside foot

Hi guys, I've had a look for threads on these kind of stops but couldn't find any, so hopefully no-one minds me starting one.

I really want to be able to do those cool one-foot "lean back" stops where you scrape the ice with the outside edge of your trailing / inside foot. Hopefully this video should give an idea of what I mean:



I'm already pretty comfortable with standard hockey stops, I'd say I'm about intermediate level right now. But I just can't figure out where to start with this technique, where I should be putting my weight and so on. Any help appreciated!

They suck to learn. Try youtubing t-stops as a learning point.

I guess just getting real comfortable with your edges? Anyways, if you can do a solid 2 foot stop I'd think this shouldn't be too big of a transition, although obviously getting a nice long glide like that will be tough.

Strengthens your normal hockey stops.

stopping has never been something I thought I needed to work on...

Well I'm not loaded so I won't be purchasing any icetime to work on this or attending any Laura Stamm. Still, interesting concept.

most people can do this with the same side skate that they shoot with, ie, like the video he is a right handed shot and stopping with his right skate. You can lean on the stick as well. I shoot left and can only do this with the left skate with or without a stick.

That's what I want to start working on, that kind of stop too. I know this one guy who can t-stop on inline skates and he won't tell me how he does it. Cool vid too.

You know what's ******** is that's exactly how I make my stops...outside edge, inside foot. And meanwhile I have tremendous difficulty making a normal hockey stop.

I always cheat and use inside edge of outside foot. I'll have to work on this at open skate sometime. I only recently started forcing myself to work on skating by putting the stick on the bench for 20 minutes...sucks

Quicker to cross over and start skating the other way?

Having had two MCL injuries in the last year... that video looks painful.

Wish I could do it.

^^ as a d-man being able to do this properly would be HUGE, wouldn't get caught flat footed nearly as much cause youd have a great push off.

I can do it a TON better on my left outside edge vs my right...just my stronger foot though in terms of balance.(and Im a right shot)

Another thing to work on during public sessions and random ice time...

Some of the other videos on that Youtube account look cool too.
