Hi this is Andrea Franklin and I'm an inline skating instructor here in Miami, Florida. In this clip I'm going to teach you the most important thing of inline skating, stopping. There are several different steps that you need to do before you learn how to stop. First of all you need to bend your knees, knees are bent and then you extend your leg, your right leg out in front of you and lift your toe sitting back as if you're doing a squat the gym. Always remember your brake is on your right foot so if I show it to you from a side angle, knees are bent, make sure that your rear end does not extend farther back than your wheel. So you're going to sit. I want you to make a triangle with the bottom part of your legs. This wheel, the back wheel of your front skate needs to be in front of the front wheel of your left skate so you make a triangle, place your hands in front of you and sit. So I'm going to show you how it's done. Place your hands in front of you, bend your knees, keep your legs close together, extend the right leg in front, lift your toe and sit and hopefully by then you'll be able to stop. This is Andrea Franklin. Thank you very much.
