We have been skating together about 3 times a week since November and he has made huge progress. The one thing he hasn't wanted to do is cross-overs. For some reason they really scare him, so he was pretty reluctant when they were introduced into his class.
He had so much pride after the lesson as he told me cross-overs actually weren't that bad and he kind of likes then now. He wasn't very interested however in my follow up lesson of the importance of trying new things even if they scare you.
