A Jam Turn is an extremely tight turn that allows us to change direction quickly and under control. It is not quite a stop, the Jam Turn allows us to maintain a little bit of momentum so that you can accelerate quickly coming out of the turn. We can break down the Jam Turn into three steps:

  1. "Jam" and lead with the inside skate (outside edge).
  2. The outside foot glides around your body on the inside edge.
  3. Cross over the inside foot with the outside foot as you come out of the turn and accelerate.
