I started my breaking self-teaching lessons with the 1 o'clock, 11 o'clock stop. This, in my opinion, is the best way to start to learn how to break as it effectively teaches you how to apply the edges to slow you down and eventually, make you stop on a dime. Once you master the edges on one foot, you can start trying parallel stops and it'll be an hour or two before you learn the parallel stop, at least, in my case.

ABSOLUTLY NOT!!!! this kills your ability to flex your ankle and knee.

Stopping has a lot to do with knee bend and learning edge control can be difficult.

Laura stamm's power skating book is amazing, it will help you with everything from drills to properly lacing your skates, i picked it up on amazon for like 6 bucks, it may be the best 6 bucks ive ever spent

2. When I attempt to stop, my skates slide to much or don't slide enough and I end up falling what's up with that?
3. When I do my crossovers my skates slip out from underneath me, any tips?

P.S. I just got my skates sharpened 2 weeks ago and only hit the ice 3 or 4 times since then.

Thanks.

take lessons from a personal coach...or find a friend that is better than you to help you out on the ice....and skate skate skate a lot...go to public skates and play as much as you can...maybe take up some roller to help with skating technique...good luck
