This video tutorial is probably one of the most important publication for anyone new to the game. Not only it explains strafing in written word, it also shows you a video demonstration and what keystrokes are made during the jump.
Also inside this thread you will find a link to a map made by RAZ3R called raztrainql_beta3, which is a map combining all the jumps you find in Quake Live maps (example: Campgrounds bridge-to-rail jump and many, many more. ... )
So be sure to jump into the thread and learn all about it. But be warned! This might actually increase your skill!!!
