Thank you for the clips, kirakira! They were very interesting.
I uploaded them here:
mediafire.com ?srz2z51169jfy88
mediafire.com ?77q4wb9bk4w2308
In case they got removed from YT.

Mao's Ballade looks even better than at The Ice, IMHO. It becomes more and more polished with every performance. It looks like Mao added some choreo right after the I spin, too.

I enjoyed the clips from the practice before the show, too (in the second video). They really show that Mao is trying to change her technique. Look at the single flip and the triple flip after that. Not only Mao does her best not to drop the torso, but also to use just the toepick to launch the jump (instead of getting down in her knee so far that almost a full blade makes contact with the ice). This will eventually help Mao to have more speed out of the jump - the longer the toepick/blade stays on the ice, the more speed the skater looses (and there's a risk of messing up the take-off if the skater enters the jump with too much speed).

I wonder if someone could translate what Mao says about her jumps and goals? There's a phrase that I find interesting, but I'm not sure if I understand it correctly. (In the first video, from 8:00)

Thanks for your explanations, Oscilla! They're really helpful. Mao seems to pick things up very quickly so I'm hoping that as she continues to rework her jumps, her new technique sticks and her old habits stay at bay, even in pressure-filled competition settings when she might try to rely on her muscle memory. It may take some time to get to that stage (where it's natural for her) but I think it'll actually be really interesting to watch the progression as it's happening.

Thank you Oscilla for sharing your comments and observations about Mao's progress. I must admit that I'm just a casual fan of FS, and I only started watching because of Mao, so I'm not really good with technical stuff. So I'm happy to know that Mao is trying to break her old habits, which I think is a very admirable thing to do because it takes a lot of patience and willpower to do so.

The baby blue (?) dress and necklace looks like it could've been a costume for her Masquerade Waltz program. It surely reminded me of her first costume for that SP last season... that is, I thought it was the same thing. Razz

Thanks kirakira!

Mao's exhibition is just breathtaking flower . And you can see how much better her flip has gotten! She hesitates less and doesn't slow down before she launches her toe pick into the ground anymore Smile .

I'm grateful for all the backstage Mao-Kanako-Kozu clips and photos, that's for sure. Swoon

ETA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyBArxMsTig (Kanako's EX at PIW Okazaki)

This should cover all the PIW Okazaki clips, for now... cyclops

Kanako is a cutie! Her exhibition reminds me of the gypsy-themed number Belbin & Agosto did a couple of seasons ago.
