History of Skipping Rope

Ever since the man has memory, he has always used the jump rope as a game, the first jump ropes were built with screws, bamboo reeds and hemp ropes. These movements, which began with instinct but perfected over time, took shape and became an art form called ‘jumping with the rope’.

Today this ancient training instrument has become the symbol, the missing link in the development of a physical form brought to a higher level.

The first concrete evidence of the activity of the jump with the rope, appears in the medieval paintings in which the children roll the circles and jump the rope on the cobblestone streets of half Europe. However, the exact origin of the jump rope activity is unclear.

Dutch settlers were among the first to spread rope jumping to the new Americas of the time. It is no surprise that one of the games that use the jump race is called “double Dutch”.

Evolution of the skipping rope
