Rope Show Episode 3 – The Jumphabet

This is the third installment of “The Rope Show” by Lee Reisig. In this episode Lee shares with us a project that he has been working on for the past 4 years. It is called the Jumphabet and it is a brilliant way to describe jump rope tricks concisely and accurately. It helps remove ambiguity when describing a trick. I’m still trying to digest it all at this point, but I can already see the power in what Lee is proposing here. He describes it as a “periodic table of jump rope skills”. As an engineer myself, I definitely appreciate his very academic approach to breaking down every skill into it’s fundamental building blocks. I now fully understand why Lee has been called the “Mad Scientist of Jump Rope”.
