Blind crosses (BXs) add a 4th dimension to the traditional combination of Pivot turns (PT), Front (FX) and Rear crosses (RX). Typically used to cue extension, turns which are included under the umbrella term ‘BXs’ can also aid cueing collection, where this would be an advantage. Similar to the more traditional PT, FX and RX, these are taught cues and turns.
