This is how we work, this is how we train, this is how we prepare for competitions.

I’m really proud that they managed to make a leap square like this in Mostar, Duke Explain.

Renovated and adapted to the development standards of this sport, jumping square will serve all jumpers from Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and the world, with the aim of continuing to develop and breed traditional swallows, and to motivate so many young people return to This sport.
