Hi 40SumT

Geez a GREAT Question, I don't remember seeing this question before. We should codify the correct answer.

3>Crossovers Phase 1 (Underpushes more accurately) 'Armadillo'
^ You still can't get a good underpush yet are trying
4>Backwards minimally (you can't do it right yet, yet you are starting
5>A Mohawk try (Transitions in Derby terms)
5.1. OK you can do a jump turn, yet not correct

Backwards skating with crossovers in the ccw direction
Transitions from forwards to backwards and backwards to forwards while in a turn either cw or ccw direction. o - o .
