About
The humble stag jump bust back onto the scene following the 2008 quad and ushered in by the connection value for adding leaps onto the end of tumbling passes, leading us into a dark forest full of double Arabians directly into stag jumps. If we were lucky. Often more like a double Arabian into an unidentifiable one-inch flop hop. From 2014-2016, the stag jump also gained a second identity as a cover-up dance element out of a complex turning leap, when that folly was in its experimental phase.

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
