About
You might be surprised to learn that this is a skill that exists. Currently. In the code of points. And not just one knee turn. There’s a whole nest of them in the corner of the attic. No one has performed this spin in 14,000 years for two primary reasons. 1) Knee skin. It’s a good thing to have, and you might want to keep it. 2) C value, even for a double turn. When you can get down there and do a wolf turn double for a D instead, why get on the knee?

Value
C
