Rope Show Episode 2 – Death Wish

Lee Reisig recently posted the second installment of “The Rope Show”. In this episode, Lee shares video of Nick Woodard landing a trick called the “Death Wish”. This is a new trick that Nick let us know about last year when we interviewed him about landing the Money Maker. Lee thought of the trick, and Nick has become the first to land it. It’s a Triple Under AS landing in a Frog. This is a very scary trick. If you snag your rope while your arms are behind your knees, you will be in serious trouble. Your face will be the closest thing to the ground and your arms will be stuck behind your knees and therefore unable to break your fall when you land. Landing on your face is *NOT* part of the trick.

Thanks to Lee for sharing another cool moment in Jump Rope history!
