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