    Those jumps of his

    Hi everyone, I can't understand grammar of this sentence. Hope you can help me.

    " There's something beyond those ridiculous jumps of his. "

    Is this grammar correct?
    Can I replace "those jumps of his " by "those his jumps" ?

    Thank you so much.

    Re: Those jumps of his

    Yes, it's correct.
    No, but you can replace it with "his ridiculous jumps". You can't use two determiners in a row like "that/this/those, etc." followed by "his, her, etc."
