Jesus christ, skipping is considerably harder than I remember it... twenty years ago.

Edit: Ten minutes of that and I've got rivulets of sweat running down my neck and back, I can't really deny the benefit of it. Least I won't be able to once I find my fucking asthma inhaler.... aah, under the dirty socks, of course.

Damned if I know, I did the one that goes:
Swing rope at feet, hop in the air, swing rope under feet, land, repeat until you trip three swings later.

If it was one rope then it was plain skipping if there were two and you were jumping twice as much it is french skipping or double dutch.

Tis funny how a lot of the old skipping rhymes are coming back as well as the skipping, can we blame a certain soft drinks ad ?

Ah, plain skipping then, I wouldn't have a clue about the other varieties, once we finished the plain skipping in school we just chased each other around and beat people with the wooden end.
