Small Jumps - Stag Jump

The Stag Jump is a variation of the Split jump. It takes off and lands like a Split, but the air position is different. In a Stag, the forward leg is bent down at the knee, while the back leg remains straight. The position in the air resembles that of a jumping deer (hence the name...).
