    Takahiko's half?/single? jump going into the three jump combo in LP

    I liked Taka's little half?/single? jump going into the three jump combo during the latter half of the LP. What is that called? How do you do that in terms of the entrance and exit as well as edges?

    It's a walley, from the opposite foot/rotating in the opposite direction from most of his jumps.

    Left back inside takeoff, left back outside landing, rotating clockwise.

    Thanks!
    How do you take off from the left back inside toward the clockwise direction? Isn't the skater on the counter-clockwise curve?

    That's what makes walleys difficult and why they're not done with multiple revolutions.

    That and the fact they aren't worth points but are just considered a connecting move.

    Not in a competition. I don't think I've ever seen a 2walley, either

    Someone has previously posted a youtube link to a skater performaing a double walley in a competitive program - it may have been gkelly (who posted the link not landed the double walley )?

    His ex.

    He also does some interesting steps around 2:30ish-2:40ish of this video. What are they?

    Heh, I can't do a single walley either!

    It was this guy, at about 1:25

    Just steps. It's hard to see some of that section because of the change in camera angles. Most of the interesting things he's doing there don't really have names.

    Thanks for looking. I especially liked the ones where he steps from the outside onto another outside. That's cute.
