1. Basic movements of novice roller skating
Semi squatting posture is the basic posture of roller skating and also the preparatory posture. In the process of roller skating, it is often necessary to maintain the semi squatting posture to prevent falling.
Roller skating swing arm action
When learning roller skating, the arm swinging posture is very important, just like walking in a fast pace. When walking in a fast pace, the arm swinging range is large, and walking is fast and stable. The arm swinging posture of roller skating is the same. Only with the correct roller skating posture can we slide faster and more stably, which requires repeated practice.
When doing roller skating arm pose, first stretch your legs slightly by 5-10cm, take a semi squatting posture, bend your body downward and lean forward, with the center of gravity between your feet, bend your elbow and put your fist in front of your chest, with the center of your fist facing the nose, and extend your right arm backward.
The two arms begin to exchange and swing. The two arms naturally fall on both sides of the body. The two hands clench their fists, and the body still maintains a squatting posture. Keep your legs still and look straight ahead.
Foot posture of roller skating
When doing the lubricating footstep posture, the first preparatory posture is to look forward, with legs slightly stretched in a semi squatting posture, knees bent at 90 degrees, upper body bent downward, and arms behind. Then, on the basis of the semi squatting posture, when the left leg is opened laterally to the outside, the inside of the foot is used to wipe the ground, and the center of gravity of the body is biased toward the right leg, and the body still maintains the squatting posture. Then, the left leg retracts and bends its knees together to lift back. The left leg is bent at 90 degrees. The center of gravity of the body is still on the right. Keep the upper body bent forward. The body can’t shake and then resume the semi squatting posture. The legs are still slightly stretched. The knees are bent at 90 degrees. The upper body is bent downward, and the arms are crossed behind.
2. The origin of roller skating
The real roller skating was invented by James primpton of the United States in 1863. His innovative use of metal wheels instead of wood wheels has more advantages when sliding, which is welcomed by everyone. His invention has promoted the development of roller skating in various countries.
On April 1, 1892, the international Roller Skating Union was established in Switzerland, which made the roller skating movement develop towards normalization and nationalization. However, the real large-scale popularity of roller skating can be traced back to the end of the 19th century. An accidental factor, this sport originally with a game nature, has turned into a large-scale trend of urban civilization in Europe.
3. Development of roller skating in China
It was not until the end of the 19th century that roller skating, a new sport, was introduced to China. At that time, it was only limited to individual coastal cities and was only used as entertainment. It was not until the early stage of reform and opening up in the 1980s that roller skating, as a fashionable sport, began to spread from south to North on the land of China, and simple roller skating venues were built one after another in various places for young people to relax and entertain.
In 2012, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the development of Chinese roller skating, the Chinese Roller Skating Association proposed that June 6 of each year be designated as “Chinese roller skating day” upon the proposal of national roller skating enthusiasts.
Age of children learning roller skating
More and more children play with pulleys, but it should be noted that children must learn pulleys at the age of relatively complete skeletal development. Generally speaking, after the age of 5, children’s self-learning ability, body reaction ability and balance ability are better. When children first learn pulleys, they should choose pulleys with strong balance, from shallow to deep. When children are 5 years old, they can achieve control and judgment. However, since pulley is a safety project, they must pay attention to self-protection awareness when learning pulley. Parents should help children wear pulley protectors, such as knee protectors, wrist protectors and helmets, so as to reduce the injury rate of children.
What should children pay attention to when they play roller skating
1. Children should do “warm-up” exercises before roller skating. In addition to sliding gently and slowly, it is essential to pull the ligaments and move the hips, knees and ankles for at least 5-10 minutes.
2. When children are playing roller skating, they will inevitably fall down, so parents must remind children to protect their bodies. Among the protective devices, the knee protector is the most important. Whether it is a beginner or a roller skater, the knee is the part with the highest probability of landing and the most vulnerable to impact when falling; Helmet is also very important. In case of a fall, the head is the most important part to be protected. In many western countries, it is punishable to skate without wearing protective equipment.
3. Choose a safe place. Don’t roller skate in places where there are many pedestrians passing by. Uneven, sloping and waterlogged ground is not suitable for roller skating.
4. Because the waist, knee joints and ankles need to support the body when playing roller skating, it is easy to lead to local overload, strain and even affect the normal development of bones if the time is too long. Therefore, children in the growth and development period should not play roller skating for too long. Children should skate for less than 50 minutes every day; Young people should not exceed 90 minutes.
5. Although complex movements are beautiful, they are not suitable for beginners. Only under the guidance of professional teachers, who have mastered the essentials of movements, can try to do some difficult movements.
