Rope Masters videoKast – Episode 025

Here is a new video from pro skipper Peter Nestler. This is episode 25 of the Rope Masters videoKast. In this episode Peter invites coach Tommy Hager to help demonstrate a couple of Chinese Wheel tricks. Tommy Hager is a long time jump rope coach, a great jumper, and one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. The first skill is the basic inside/outside turn. The second trick is the new and amazingly intricate “reverse marlee mashup”.

Peter also lets us know that his long awaited Double Dutch and Chinese Wheel instructional video is now available. It clocks in at an amazing 7.5 hours worth of instruction spanning 4 DVDs. It is sure to be jam-packed with lots of valuable insights for people of all skill levels. It also features instruction from world famous jumpers Nick Woodard, Kelsy Moe and Mike Fry.

YMCA Super Skippers Demonstrate Advanced Jump Rope Skills

In today’s video the YMCA Super Skippers demonstrate some advanced Jump Rope skills for us. The first trick is a 4-wheel switch. The second trick is a trick for two people with one rope called the “TLC Tunnel”. The 3rd and final trick is a fast 3-wheel gig. These tricks take a lot of practice and good teamwork to master.

Great job guys!!

Rope Show Episode 1 – Gig Cross

I’m very happy to introduce the latest video project from USA Jump Rope All Star Lee Reisig. His video for “Welcome to Jumptown” is still one of my favorite videos we’ve shown on JRV. This is the first episode of “The Rope Show”. Lee plans to make this an on going series in which he will bring us “the latest in Jump Rope news, moves, demos, and challenges.” In episode 1 Lee introduces a 3-wheel technique called the “Gig Cross”.

One of the great things about Lee is his very analytical approach to Jump Rope. He’s great at breaking down skills and figuring out how they work. He can take a single technique and visualize how it opens up a whole new world of possibilities. To me that’s what it really takes to perform at a Masters level in this sport. You need a high “Jump IQ”. In my opinion, Lee’s Jump IQ is off the charts.

I asked Lee what we can look forward to in future episodes. He said that he has some footage from the US Trials and even some video of the “Deathwish” that Nick Woodard told us about last year.
