He doesn’t describe or slow down regarding the difference between the first and second demonstrations.

I’ll copy and paste my comment below, let me know if it helps 🙂 Hi everyone, sorry for the delay in replying to these questions! World championships are coming up, so it’s a very busy time getting the skaters here ready for the competition. If you look very closely at the first example, you can see that there is a slight space between the feet during the Mohawk. This was deliberately done in the video, as it looks correct, but the judges/technical panel will flag this as an incorrect turn as the feet were not precise enough (they should be touching boot to boot). In the second example, the feet are much closer together which is the correct way the feet should be placed in the turn. This would be credited as clean by the judges, however in the example you can see a bit of snow fly up as the right foot skids a little bit. In a singles skating event this would probably be okay, however in an ice dance event this small error would be enough to have the Mohawk be classified as a mistake and not counted as a correctly executed turn. Correct foot placement is an incredibly important aspect when doing turns and foot work. More often than not, people don’t pay enough attention to it and then wonder when the judges are not giving them the marks they think they should be getting. In hindsight, I should have added a superslow motion shot of this mistake when editing the video! Oooops, my bad. You can slow the speed of the videos down if you click on the gear symbol in the bottom right corner 🙂 If you have anymore questions about it, please let me know!
