    Old School Figures

    Any insights from anyone who studied them?

    What kind of insight are you looking for? This is kind of open ended. Is there a specific test you want insight into?

    Specifically, is figures related to free skating in anyway? I mean, say you can do a back inside rocker on patch, but when you're barrelling 40km/hr down the ice (well, maybe not that fast) can you still do it?

    Patch teaches fine motor control over turns and edges. The more you can control your turns and edges as in patch, the better your freeskating (as a total package) is and the more secure everything feels.
