    I still need to create a glossary for my book. Since a lot of my readers will be like me before my research and know as little (or *gasp* less) as I did about figure skating, I want to include any figure skating terms in the glossary.

    For anyone willing to help me out with that, here's what I'm looking for: a definition/explanation of each of the basic jumps, of stroking, and backspins. It doesn't have to be perfect. Just tell me how you'd explain them to a non-figure skating fan, and I'll take it from there. If I need any further clarification on any of them, I'll just ask.

    Btw, thanks again for all the help you've already given.

    A lot of help can be found here. If you have questions on specifics we can go from there.

    That looks great. I'll look at that more in depth when I get home tonight, but I think that's what I need. Thanks!
