In this video, you'll learn how to practise falling when skating
Here is an exercise that you can adapt to have fun sliding along the ground
Place two markers on the ground, around two metres apart
Position yourself ten metres away, push off and gain speed
When you're level with the markers, lower yourself down to adopt the 'kneeling Knight' position
To learn more about this position, watch the video 'learning how to fall'
Let yourself slide as far as you can along the ground.
Alternate the sliding phases by switching the leg you kneel on or adopting the 'Little Wagon' position
If you have a partner, have a contest by pushing off together- the one who slides the furthest wins!
To vary the exercise, push off face to face a few dozen metres away from each other
Calculate the distance necessary for dropping down and sliding in the same position on your kneepads
You can choose to reach each other and stop or do a high five
You can also practise dropping down together, side by side and holding hands
Over to you!
