Jump-Rope Tricks Banner

Cool Jump-Rope Tricks You Can Do! by David Fisher includes over 100 skills and tricks with helpful hints, personal notes, step-by-step photos, and simple, clear instructions kids can use to master the techniques. Fisher also covers practical topics like selecting the right type and length of rope, the best jumping surfaces, warming up, proper jumping form, making mistakes, and safety. The 9 7/8" x 7 5/8"-wide format lies open so jumpers can review each trick before trying it themselves.
 

Beginners will learn basic footwork, rope-swinging and jumping skills which allow them to get started-with no previous experience necessary. Intermediate and advanced jumpers will find new moves and techniques to challenge and push their jumping to the next level, enabling them to create their own jump-rope tricks and routines. It's like a private lesson from the world's best rope jumper!
