    ^ Thanks for the clarification.

    That seems to be the direction they're heading as it's also Yuzuru's main emphasis when he refused to give up 4S in his Notre Dame FS even though Orser suggested doing so. If the SOI intro video can serve as evidence, CC seem to be training him to do 4T-3T so it's very likely that we'll see that in his program(s) next season.
    As FTNoona said, I don't think his team would allow him to do these sequences in competitions, especially in the Sochi Olympics season, as they need to rack up as many points as possible in order to win. They'd rather have him learn something like the more COP-friendly 3A-4T than let him incorporate the sequences in competitive programs even though they are exciting to watch.

    When did we last see 3A-4T in competition? At the rate today's quad boys are improving it's certainly possible. Wow.

    I don't think it has been done in a competition before? But I've seen a video of Plushenko attempting the combination before and it seems that he successfully landed it in practice back in 2010.

    When I saw the first paragraph mentioning the adjectives "irresponsible and hotheaded," I feared that I'd hear some tale of his skipping training a la Christopher Bowman or training lackadaisically like Tonya Harding. But no, he's pushing himself extra hard and maybe even practicing extra in secret. Such a "hothead" is a credit to skating. But he has to take care of himself! We don't want him to end up like the notoriously driven Tara Lipinski, unable to skate while still a teenager. I hope that Hanyu has a career that's as enduring as Plushy's, and to do that, he has to learn how to pace himself.

    My opinion, but not a good coach Orser him.

    But I respect his decision.

    Go Yuzu!

    Once again , may I defend the "irresponsible and hotheaded" samurai kid who was heroically able to survive coachless and without major injuries to 60 shows in a row ?

    Yuzuru has already demonstrated to be able to overcome insanely difficult training situations by himself, if you can only have some faith in him.

    And I thank you for that, because when I read it I immediately saved it on my folder and I'll check it every time I doubt about Yuzuru.

    Really, 3 quads?!! That's crazy! I just wonder what kind will be the 3rd one. I read somewhere that he would like to learn quad loop.
    Let's hope his body can handle it.
    Too bad that 3A-3A sequences aren't worth the try in terms of points. It's a thing of beauty! So does his quads sequences [x] [x] [x] I could stare at it all day!

    Yuzuru has a history of overtraining himself issue, I would say at least six or seven years. Ironically, he used to hate training too hard but things changed at his 4th grade.

    I hated to carry a great deal of practice when I was little. But my attitude changed after I win All Japan Novice Championships at my 4th grade in primary school. It was first time in my life I was training really hard. Under my coach's guidance (FYI it was Coach Tsuzuki Shoichiro), I did train seriously through after-shcool morning and night pratice , I think that's the strength driven me to win. (文藝春秋 April 2013)
    Yuzuru lived his skater life from one extreme to another afterwards. Coach Nanami said countless times Yuzuru was the most hardworking skater she's ever seen.

    Due to overtaining himself, Yuzuru injuried himself couple of times before even he's career just about to start, fatigue fracture, avulsion fracture and frequent low back pain. And now Jumper's knee.

    I do hope Yuzuru, as he said in the pigeon post interview, he realized he was trained too hard without coach, he should have taken a slow start.

    Without any hesitation sports injury absolutely is most cold blood killer of skater's life IMAO.

    this is the message #557, 8/21/12

    I didn't know Yuzuru was just like Mao!!

    Not three types of quads. I think we should expect to see a solo 4T, 4T in combination (most probably 4T-3T) and solo 4S in his free program next season.

    No problem at all. I'm happy I could help.

    This thread used to be so negative about Yuzuru's coach change decision due to lack of information.
    I believe there are a lot of Yuzuru fans or people whom care about Yuzuru's carrer checked this fan thread frequently even without resisted a GS ID, well just like I did before.
    So what I'm trying to do now is to deliver his own voice here, his thoughts, his decision,his everything.

    Actually that's a may not a must. So we will see what's going on next season. But I'm sure Yuzuru desperately want to put three quads in his free program. He insisted couple times before.

    Will it be like quad toe, quad toe-triple toe, and quad sal like Javi's FS? Since it looks like it takes about 2 years to have a consistent quad (or triple axel) at a competition for Yuzu, I think next season his quad sal will be quite good in the program. Thinking about 3 quads in one program makes me worry about Yuzu's stamina. But like he said, he doesn't like to lose and the skaters with 3 quads already beat him at competition. I think he will go for 3 quads in his free.

    Anyway, a jump layout in the program is decided by a coach and a skater. Even if Yuzu wants 3 quads really bad, he will not be able to do them if Orser doesn't allow.

    Preciously Yuzuru's training was quite rough. He said he mostly just fly jumps because he only could take one hour alone ice rink time, so jumps came to the first, he also understood he didn't practice enough time of basic skating skills. (Magazine Number 822), and he loses control while he trained himself too many jumps. (Article ユズルが天才である理由 by田村明子).

    And Yuzuru said once in SOI TV program he loves to challenge himself with executed triple axel while he's exhausted, the reason is kinda funny, he simply just wants to know how strong he is. I have to say my mind became blanked after he said that. Sigh.
