lazy giffing

anonymous asked:

Can I ask you about Yuzuru's edges? I'm trying to self-teach myself about figure skating but i still don't have the keenest eye for this. Obviously he has great skating skills (his footwork and the amount of one-footed skating in his program is insane) but i can't much tell how deep his edges are etc.

I’m of the idea a picture is worth a thousand words and - as I’ve been pointed out today yesterday - a video is worth a thousand pics (frames), so you can do the conversion.

What may be difficult with Yuzu is that he is so damn fast and quirk that it can be not the easiest to follow everything he does. 


But his edges are precise and neat. If you slow down a video of him skating, you can clearly see all his turns and steps and the way he goes from one edge to the other or the way he enters and exits from a turn or a step.

Bonus gifs by @the-real-xmonster​ because there’s never too much of Yuzu’s edges:


And bonus gif courtesy of Spanish Media ‘cause I’ve alwasy found quite funny they decided to show Yuzuru and Javi skating side by side.

Moana + forehead touches

The Hongi (or Honi) is a Polynesian greeting in which two people greet each other by pressing noses/foreheads and inhaling at the same time. This represents the exchange of ha, the breath of life, and mana, spiritual power, between two people. The ancient custom of Hongi when meeting another included touching foreheads together, inhaling, kissing the other on the cheek, hugging and then exhaling.
