Love love the Gus Lussi technique. Starr Andrews learned this through Peter Betts as her basic foundation from age 4-12. His technique gave her what she has developed into today as a skater! Starr Andrews' mother, Toshawa Andrews, 2013
I loved your tapes. I used to have all of the VHS tapes, but lost them in a move. :( Of course now that I no longer have a VHS player, I'm thrilled you're putting them on DVD! I watched them over and over. Allison Manley, Manleywoman Skatecast, 2013
It's been an honor to write about this. Jo Ann Schneider Farris, Figure Skating expert at About.com, 2013
I have always been interested in learning more about Mr Lussi's technique. As such, I find your videos both highly informative and fascinating. Ray Belmonte
I think these are such a great source of clean technique, and a great documentation of a very gifted and charismatic coach. You are so fortunate to have trained with someone of this caliber. Sigrid Dahlberg, P.E., Environmental Engineer, 2014
Keep me updated about new DVDs.
Best. Alexander Murashko
The production quality is excellent, with close-ups and slow motion used when necessary. Also, Dubova is miked, so the audio is clear and understandable and the narrator is great. The camera work is professionally done, with two (or more) cameras covering the rink, so you will see close in work in high quality detail. Pamela Sexton
They are incredibly helpful and I'm really getting a lot out of them. F. McQ., UK
Love the first video!!! Thanks so much for this resource. Patty Creel
I have taken lessons from coaches who worked with Mr. Lussi and I appreciate the techniques of his they shared with me. I'm so grateful to be able to purchase these DVDs to learn even more about his techniques that I can pass on to my students. Polly Joralemon
Best of all, I love stepping onto the ice every morning at the Ice Chalet knowing that those very techniques are incorporated into my own foundation of skating. Kathyrn Eddy
I watched them all, they were fantastic! I will treasure them. I'm so glad you had the foresight to film these coaching legends in action. Ryan Cody, 2015

You and Mr. Lussi have turned my figure skating world
on its head! Keep fighting the good fight. N. P., Utah
I want to let you know how tremendously grateful I am to the Systematic Figure Skating DVD's you made with Mr. Lussi. Yesterday I passed my Adult Silver FS! I have been struggling with both the single loop and flip jumps for the longest time. I started watching Volume IV just about a couple weeks ago (should have done it months sooner!). I really want to thank you for being so clear and detailed with the explanations, and often repeating the demonstrations in the video enough times that the images start to get in my head. Sometimes it's not easy to catch what Mr. Lussi had to say, but with you explaining loud and clear again what he meant, it helped me a lot!
I just want to let you know how grateful I am. Elizabeth Chung
I been wanted to see videos for a while now. Very interested..:)
I am figure skating coach in Tasmania and running my own private group teaching skating. I skated since i was 9 year old (i am 41 now) in Russia. Oxana Anichkina
it was fascinating to see him in action. I had only read about Mr. Lussi before, so this is just a treasure. Thank you SO much for putting all of the time and creativity into undertaking this project so his teaching can still continue and skaters (and their parents) and coaches can benefit from his genius. What a gift :) Jen Dimonte
I am so glad you documented his teaching- pure genius! Amy MacMartin
They are VERY useful. I am so thankful that these tapes/dvd's were done. He will live on forever in the eyes of us skaters who didn't know him. From these tapes, I love Gus Lussi so much for his contribution and his personality and I feel like I've met him. F. N., NYC, 2014

I viewed the Volume I tape five or ten times before I actually tried out some of the suggestions which were presented. When I finally went to the rink and applied the suggestions, one of the rink employees came up to me and asked me if I had been taking lessons. I told her that I had been cheating - I was using lessons from your videotape. About thirty minutes later, another person came up to me and asked the same question. Another thirty minutes after that, one more person came up to me - she asked if I gave lessons! Earl Desch, US
WOW! It is great! BettyAnne Wilkinson, Manitoba, Canada
Excellent blend of commentary, well illustrated technique... Bravo! Pat Rhodes, Allentown, PA
