A flutz is an ice skating nickname for a lutz
jump that is not done correctly. The lutz's entry edge must remain on the outside edge. If the edge changes to an inside, the lutz jump is considered a flip
jump and does not receive full credit. The nickname for this mistake is "flutz."
All ice skaters hope to complete a clean lutz jump and to not do a flutz.
Sometimes, figure skating coaches say the following to their students: "Don't flutz your lutz!"
