As soon as a child fell down, he would immediately skate to their side and tell them: “It’s okay even if you fall down a lot; ice skating means falling a lot. Even sensei fell down a bunch of times during practice just now.”

Hanyu-senshu’s words towards the end of the lesson: “Falling down tons of times is completely okay. As long as you don’t give up and continue practicing, there will be the day when your skating will have improved. Even if it means experiencing many failures, it’s not a problem. Reflect on why you failed, and then avoid it in the future.” x
