Put your feet together, knees soft, back straight, elbows tucked in, hands at waist level. Begin to skip by rotating your wrist in a circular motion. It is important that you do not use your forearm to spin the rope around.
Try to aim for a jump height of around two inches.
Keep elbows tucked in at waist level, hands are roughly at hip level ( but not glued there!). Hands should always stay in this position whilst actually skipping (wrist action only in a circular motion).
Skip reasonably fast so you do not get the rope caught under your feet and keep the skipping rope tight and close to your head.
