Welcome to the Roller Skate Life Newsletter March 2018.

This newsletter is presented by the Es Quint Foundation, powered by Quadsk8 International and supported by Ginger Skates.

Thank you for supporting our goals and activities. In case you just joined in, welcome on board and may your journey through life be a soulful one!

Where focus goes, energy flows!

It may take a while to control your roll, but if you stick to it, it's yours to keep forever!
As you get more and more into a particular subject - in this case roller skating - there is a system in the brain called the Reticular Activitating System (RAS), which is responsible for boosting your focus and awareness on that subject. Anything else will be filtered out or given lower priority.

For instance, in terms of survival (your main brain's focus), your RAS makes you respond to your name, when someone calls you out in a crowded space. It's your RAS that makes you spot anything new or different in any expected pattern or situation. And of course your RAS also constantly responds to anything that affects your safety.

Now roller skating can be a serious threat to your safety, especially as a beginner. But after giving it a fair try -preferably under professional guidance-  there is a good chance you might convince your brain that the threat can be controlled and there's some fun to it as well. From that moment on, your RAS will be your best partner in your soulful roller skate journey. Any information regarding (rhythm) roller skating will get to you faster and your learning curve will change massively for the better.

So be nice to your RAS, for it's taking care of you and has the power to make you a funky rhythm skater!
 
Three different generations doing the same thing. There are not many sports and activities today, providing a platform for such a diversity of people in just one setting. We often see in training sessions, how different characters of people interact with each other, who would otherwsie in daily life just pass each other by. 
Easter Holiday coming up by the end of this month!

So,
NO TRAINING ON

Connecting and interacting on wheels is a very special way of communicating with yourself and other skaters. The combination of vulnerability and playfulness on roller skates, always brings out the best in people.

In recent years, The Es Quint Foundation has changed the character of her roller skate activities in a profound but organic way.
Where just being able to roller skate and share that joy with others was merely the end goal, roller skating now has become a refined and extraordinary unique communication tool, with pretty unexpected but spectacular results. To be continued in upcoming editions with highlight stories.

One riff, two different tempos, still the same awesome feeling!
Extensive turning of the hips, really puts the oblique abdominal muscles to work. Main focus is on the heel of the swing leg (front leg), which will give you the sway you need to curve and move backwards.

For those who would like to know; the first section is a reworked version of George Clinton's awesome Cosmic Slop (1973) done by Moodymann, Sloppy Cosmic (2014). The second section is the groove pumpin' 2006 Phuck this Cowbell by Kerri Chandler.
