    Ok my fellow Skaters...I want to know from you today...NOT the very first Skating move that was ever taught to you...but rather the very first Skating move that you ever mastered as a Skater? Please also say if you mastered it while being taught by a coach...or if you were self-taught. I'd say for me the first move I ever mastered as a Skater was my Edges. I had a coach in Learn to Skate. But I was basicly Self-taught....GO!!!

    Not hanging onto the boards :) Which my coach still has to remind me about, as I tend to place my jumps so that I land near the boards and can grab them if I have to....

    I'm thinking it must have been a swizzle. I had likely figured out forward gliding and skating forward by then, but I think the first "move" was the swizzle.

    I probably learned them in the LTS class.
