    I'm sick of it... It's just not fair! She was taught this when she was very young, and now... It's just not fair!

    Wow. How is it not fair? Not fair to the ice? Not fair to you, seeing as how you're somehow being forced to watch her skate?

    Is this about her mule kick? It's not pretty, but not that annoying to me.

    I cannot pinpoint why, but something about her reactions in K&C at COC had me feel that she might be actually retiring after the season, as she mentioned before.

    I saw lots of children were jumping like this here and there in group lessons. It just gives impression of sloppiness, "It's ok, go just jump jump jump". Ah, somebody had to fix this long time ago.

    I have to wonder about what the big deal is. It just seems like a different jumping technique. Is there anything objectively bad about it?

    How dare she not skate like all of the women we are used to!

    Yeah I agree with you, I wouldn't teach it like that as it is usually difficult to get height on a flip or lutz when you hammer the pick like that but she seems not to have to much problems, her flip and lutz get decent height and are quite consistent. Sure its not the most attractive but it gets the job done
