A forward facing toe stop is a good beginner drill separate from the stopping ability. You learn balance while something (the floor) is hitting your non-balancing foot. It's a good skill to have. A T-stop or plow stop will provide better stopping power, perhaps at the expense of the wheels, but there is nothing wrong or bad about learning this stop.

I love the phrase "I quit". It beats more of my opponents than I do.

I understand the concept, but feel that the risk of developing a bad habit is too great for this to be a useful drill. Just my opinion.

I'm one big bundle of bad habits now, what's one more? ;-)
