I’m not talking about the big, death-defying leaps. I’m talking about practical apex jumping (like you see here). Sometimes you need to be able to hop around an opponent, or over them (or both), and that requires knowing how to jump.
And it’s not just a jammer skill. There are lots of really scary blockers who use apex jumps—sometimes even clockwise apex jumps—to chase after or run back an opponent.
go go go!

Final scores from Defend the Palace yesterday:
Brawl Saints 215 - 130 Glasgow Roller Derby
Brawling 500 - 30 Tiger Bay Brawlers
Thank you to both teams for coming down, to Lush for helping us support #signoflove, to our own and the visiting NSOs and refs, and of course everyone who came and watched and cheered and drank the bar dry three times!
We’d love to hear any feedback you have on our new venue - we thought it was pretty fab!
