This is video of USA Jump Rope All Star team member Mike Fry demonstrating how to do a trick called the Toad. As you can see from this video, Mike is an excellent teacher. This August Mike will be returning to Tanzania and Kenya on a fellowship from Oberlin College. You can follow his work at jumpropeinafrica.blogspot.com.
Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to promoting the sport Mike! Keep up the great work!
Sebastian Deeg is back with a new series of videos. This time he is providing us with a glimpse into the evolution of some the tricks that he has created. I really like the way he has broken down the tricks into some of their basic components. It’s funny that I just used the word “basic” because there is actually nothing basic about these tricks. These are very clearly Masters level tricks. Even seeing them broken down like this, they are going to take me a very long time to land. That’s the great thing about this sport… there’s always a new challenge waiting for you. I’ll post more of Sebastian’s trick evolution videos in the future to help round out the tricks category on JRV.
BTW, if you aren’t familiar with Sebastian’s previous work… do yourself a favor and check out his “Go Hard or Go Home” video. It’s still one of my favorites from the first two years of JRV and I’m sure it will be one of yours too. Sebastian is a great athlete and true innovator in the sport. It’s always fun to see what guys like him will come up with next.
