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.
