T stop((my own fb post)

Plow stop.(my own FB post)

This covers a visual example of a traditional plow using 2 feet, then selectively using a left and right foot plow as well as the backward variants.

Spin stop(didnt have a personal one, so here ya go)

Hockey stops , (my own FB post)

If you watch the hockey stop video , all a hockey stop realy breaks down to is a 1 foot plow stop while simultaneously dragging the other foot as a T stop. So getting those 2 prerequisites , a good 1 footed plow with the right foot, and a good left footed T stop will really help one learn a hockey stop. Those 2 stops , while different help to build the muscles needed for a hockey stop and the skill needed to make a foot slide as weight modulation goes.

If you need a real breakdown of how to's I'll be happy to help. Or link a video that someone else has already done a good job with.
