    I'm amazed at how many of the Japanese girls can land 3Z's. No wonder Fumie had trouble even making Nationals.

    Miu Sato really coached by Machiko Yamada? Hard to believe because most of her students have some weird techniques on jumps but Miu has a real Lutz and she doesn't really have odd looking jumps, compare to her other students like Mao, Mai, Murakami, Yukari Nakano, shoma Uno, etc.

    Probably has to do with the fact that edge calls have been a lot more common the last couple of years. Whereas Mao and Yukari learned their technique before, the next generation really has to focus on getting the technique right.

    That's true but she doesn't have the high leg kick, leg wrap nor toe axel! She jumps like she was coached by someone else.. Yamada is known for not fixing her students bad habits.. That's why I was wondering..

    I don't know, it might just be Miu. Because Shoma Uno is very, very young and has just awful technique on his flip/lutz, with a former Caroline Zhang-esque twisting high kick (not to mention a flutz).

    I agree a lot depends on the individual. I imagine it can be hard for a coach of the marginally talented skaters who simply are not capable of landing the difficult jumps with proper technique. So, for example, do you tell them not to do their bad lutz and flip at all, or let them becuase at least they will garner more points, do better in competitions, please the skater's parents, etc.

    I think that most skaters with the bad technique develop that way because something about the way they do that jump makes it easier, although the trouble does appear later. Miu Sato's height on her lutz is so impressive, and might be the reason why she developed such good technique on it if she just was able to get good air on it (Uno has low jumps so perhaps the twisting helps his rotation speed). At the same time, her axel technique isn't that great but it allows her to rotate and land. I think young skaters should be less occupied with landing the jump vs. doing it with correct technique, but we don't reward good technique enough at lower levels as opposed to impressive tricks (but perhaps with less than good technique).
