What is ethical in skating, a motto? Do you have a philosoph or theory on what makes a champion skater? Basically, what would you do if you were a figure skating coach? How would you select your students and so on?

1."A great skater possess passion, strength, and determination"

2. Skaters without courage soon fail. Skaters without focus fall. A skater without passion burns-out. Skaters without open minds never learn to listen. Skaters without style never gain acclaim. Skaters without solid work ethics lose ground.

3. If I were a coach, I would make sure my skater practice with heart, fun, focus, and style. Technical ability equals focus. Fun equals audience appeal. Heart equals determination. Style equal every little detail.

4. Students looking for fame need not apply. Fame never built a lasting nation or society; it just "improves" living.
