Super Fast Japanese Girl Jumping Rope

This video has been making the rounds on the internet recently. It’s from some Japanese TV show. This girl is super fast with a jump rope. She jumps the rope 151 times in 30 seconds. That’s 5 jumps a second. She’s the fastest I’ve seen jumping on both feet. Tori Boggs is capable of 6 jumps a second doing a speed step (alternating feet). The world record for 30 second speed is actually 190 jumps (6.3 jumps/sec ) and is held by Ben Hoste from Belgium. To me anything around 5 jumps/sec and up is pretty dang fast.

USA Jump Rope 2007 National Championship Is This Weekend

This year’s USA Jump Rope National Tournament will be held this coming weekend at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. June 22-23 will be the National Age Division Championships followed by the Grand Masters National Championship on June 24th. If you are attending, please be sure to take lots-o’-video and share it with the rest of us by submitting your videos to JRV.

Will Adam Pang repeat as Single Rope Freestyle Champion?

What sort of crazy and innovative Double Dutch tricks will the Summerwind Skippers have cooked up?

Will Justin Meier break any national speed records?

Can Tori Boggs break her own records in single rope speed? If she can maintain her top speed with no misses, we might even see some world records broken! If you’ve never had a chance to see her jump speed you’re missing out. Here is some video of her doing 30 second speed. The girl is crazy fast.

Good luck to everyone!

Grand National Champion Justin Meier – Three Minute Speed

Today’s jump rope video is of Justin Meier the 2006 Grand National Champion in Male Three Minute Speed. Justin won with a score of 900. That’s only 8 jumps shy of the national record set by Veyom Bahl in 2004. Justin averaged 5 jumps a second over three minutes which is very amazing.

If you are working on speed, pay very close attention to the form that Justin uses while he jumps. He leans slightly forward, his arms are at his waist. He makes small tight circles with his wrists and his feet barely come off the ground.

Nice work Justin!

Double Dutch Speed

Molly is fast. REALLY fast.
