Detailed Description

This extraordinary new video series documents the innovative teaching methods of Gustave F. Lussi, world-renowned coach of such champions as Dick Button and Dorothy Hamill. Each one-hour volume, in the four volume series, places the viewer in actual lesson situations with Mr. Lussi and presents in detail the methodology of the renowned coach who invented, and first introduced, many of the exciting moves performed in today's free skating -- the flying sit spin, the flying camel, the Hamill camel.

By way of illustration, the series also includes rare film footage of Tenley Albright, Dick Button, John Curry, Dorothy Hamill, Don Jackson, Otto & Maria Jelinek, Gordie McKellen, and Ronnie Robertson demonstrating the results of Mr. Lussi's methods.

Volume I reveals the legendary spinning techniques developed and taught by Mr. Lussi to prepare students for multi-revolution jumping. "The spinning was the basis for the jumping . . . Gustave Lussi produced champion after champion after champion, because he gave his pupils techniques that they could rely upon." Dick Button, two-time Olympic Champion and ABC SPORTS Commentator.

This is your opportunity to join 1992 Olympic Silver Medalist Paul Wylie and other skaters "on lesson" with Mr. Lussi. Your first one hour lesson includes step-by-step instructions from Mr. Lussi on the sit spin, forward scratch spin, back scratch spin, as well as steps into and out of the spins.

Slow-motion and stop action video, as well as detailed chalk-board diagrams, are used to fully explain the necessary elements required to perform each spin.

"Cecily Morrow has produced an outstanding educational tape on the Gustave Lussi technique . . . This tape is what I've personally longed to see . . . a step-by-step teaching tool" Susan Davies, Chairman, Coaches Training Committee, Professional Skaters Guild of America (PS Magazine Jan./Feb. 1993)
