    Interview with Yuka Sato (as a skater, commentator, choreographer, coach)

    I enjoyed this interview with Yuka Sato at Trophée Eric Bompard and thought she had interesting things to say about Kozuka's development as a performer and her coaching of Abbott and Czisny: http://absoluteskating.com/interviews/2011yukasato.html

    Nice article. I see a great future for Yuka and Jason as coaches.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    Thanks for sharing.
    The skaters who work with Yuka are very fortunate.

    Interesting re Alissa - taking ownership of her life; something outside of skating is improving her consistency on the ice

    Great article...I remember having the chance to meet her briefly a couple years ago, and she comes off as very thoughtful and intelligent. It'll be so great to see Alissa and Jeremy on top at the National champs.

    Brava, Reut, for the interview! And thank you, Sylvia, for cross- posting.
    The word which pops into mind while reading about the Sato family is "wisdom".
    I think Yuka Sato is poised to be the next great coach, and I am rooting for her all the way.
    Very interesting observations about Takahiko! I absolutely love his skating, and it was curious to me to see that they do not perceive him as " balletic', because his body awareness is just beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing him put his personality more and more forward. I also hope Yuka choreographes for him again- his SP's 2008/9 and 2009/10 were divine.

    Yuka sounds like a very nice professional skating teacher.

    Loved the links to pictures where she is standing next to her dad at practices.

    Great interview reut! Thanks for all of your work covering skating.

    As if I could like Yuka any more, she goes and gives this insightful interview.
