"One simple clinic and your instructors accomplished what my son's coaches and I have been trying to do forever, lengthen his stride for more power and speed! We skated for the first time since the clinic four days ago and everything they taught him has stuck. He almost beat me in a full lap race. He really dove into the corners with tight turns and a quick burst coming out from the net area."

Backward C-Cut Video mini lesson by Instructor Team Leader Alan Noble.
Backward C-Cuts are best used when traveling at full speed going backward or in 1 on 1 situations as a defenseman. Backward crossovers are still best for acceleration and lateral movement. So the best way to do this is by performing 1 crossover to get your speed up, then going into the backward c-cuts.
Also the arm swing shown is used only in low pressure situations and when going for absolute maximum speed. When you are in a high pressure situation such as a 1 on 1 or 2 on 1 against you, you can do many things with your stick and might not be able to swing your arms.
