Enjoy. http://picasaweb.google.co.uk/Willowfifteen/ECSSaturday# Hi, Willow, I hope that your leg heals ...

Some toeside turn thoughts from ECS

By working with pictures from last ECS I remembered one discussion where it was said that in EC heelside turn is easier than toeside. Sounds contradictionary?
