Your site is the most valuable resource for jump rope. It is the most informative tool for teaching single rope, partner, double dutch, and group jump rope skills. The visual demonstrations is like having a coach present at each practice.
I have been a jump rope coach and teacher for over 20 years. I wish that this resource was available a long time ago. It is here now and it has made me a much better coach and teacher. The physical education curriculum is terrific!

Thank you for your efforts in setting up this jump rope website. These are great resources to help with our recreational and competitive programs. I’m very pleased with the amount of information provided on the site and it is very easy to navigate. Carolyn Landry
Finally – an intro into rope jumping from the very beginning!
Even as a senior and after several injuries i could start doing the preparing exercises and the first jumps thanks to Peters systematic and detailed approach.
Although I am not as talented as the other reviewer, I already learned the first section! You would laugh seeing me doing all the beginning exercises so slowly and carefully, but for the first time I got a kick on it and I am convinced I found a way to step into a new fitness activity, a “workout” and to learn a lot more with this wonderful video! Rainer Wilhelm
I have it permanently loaded and refer to it almost daily as I work to learn new skills. Since I have not found a fitness club or trainer in my area that teaches rope skipping skills, Peter’s video is my virtual “teacher” and I can see that it contains enough content to keep me challenged for many years to come.
My goal is to become very proficient in rope skipping and increase my fitness level and I believe Peter’s video will help me to accomplish my goals! Lee Chase
These videos can and will properly instruct anyone with zero experience from beginner through intermediate and advanced jumping and I am proof of that. Within one 5 minute viewing of the basics section (Section I), I grabbed my rope, sized it as instructed, went outside and skipped 60 revolutions using proper form within three attempts. Later that day, I watched one of the transition tricks for fun, and again, went outside with my rope and performed the move in two tries.
My success in this example is not to show how egocentric I am, but is meant to illustrate the fact that these videos breaks down every single move in a logical, no nonsense way. The moves have multiple demonstration angles with close-ups of the feet and are presented in literally step by step increments that thoroughly break down every component of every move in correct and logical order/sequence. There is absolutely zero guess work on the viewer’s part, and the instructor speaks clearly in a very calm and vocally coherent cadence.
If any of the readers of this review saw me attempt to jump rope prior to watching this video, I suspect that most would laugh out loud at my performance. After starting this video, I doubt anyone would laugh at the skills I have learned in such a short time.
I am a boxing instructor, and usually start my warm-ups and cool-downs by jump-roping. Jump-roping mindlessly everyday without any creativity is boring! Your videos increased my creativity and skill through easy to understand instruction! Who ever knew jump-roping could be so much fun, my friends are constantly amazed with my jump-roping skills!

We are a fairly new jump rope team in Missouri, far away from other teams. Learning all the more difficult single rope tricks, double dutch and wheel tricks means long distance travel to learn from others. Peter’s videos have been invaluable. When we have a question at practice on how to execute a particular move, we watch it on the spot. Peter breaks each skill down to its basic foundation and demonstrates several times how to do each part. He then shows how the trick looks once it is all put together. Well worth the money.

Could not possibly wish for anything more – from the most basic to the most advanced – all is clear, systematic and coordinated. – the perfect videos for rope skipping. Prakash Puchooa
The Double Dutch and Chinese Wheel Instructional Video is the best jump rope instructional video I have ever seen! Period!
It is simple to navigate, entertaining, and filled with great skills. I used it with my team as soon as possible and it was a hit! Only problem I had was keeping the kids away from the video and the remote. It will definitely help any team or jump rope group become better!! Randy Modesitt

Our team uses these at practice to learn new skills as well as fine tune existing skills. It is clear and concise and the format makes it very easy to use as an instructional tool. Kathy Weninger
Our team is relatively new and my daughter who is in the 7th grade is one of the oldest on the team. She has never had a mentor to help her learn the more difficult tricks. My son jumps well but his skills are progressing fast. His sister is no longer of help to him either. Both my kids needed help with learning the more difficult tricks. Although our coach is great, she can not demonstrate the tricks like you can. Both of my kids have used these videos to pick up trick ideas to prepare for their recent competitions. In fact, my son went to Nationals this year. I was able to help my kids learn these tricks and am even using it myself in order to prepare to compete in the “more mature” jumpers age division next year. You break each trick down so well.

I focus on boxing style with cable ropes…combined with some of your moves I’ve learned, I’ve dropped 40+ pounds over 1 year. It’s a great way to make new friends on the beach boardwalk in Toronto .. people approach me every day..or just stand and watch..
Anyway keep up the great work.. you’re definitely part of the solution when it comes to helping people of all ages with challenging and fun workouts. I highly recommend your videos. Martin Castle
