GUEST,Becky Help with playing 'Chinese Jump Rope' (57* d) RE: Chinese Jump Rope 03 Feb 05

This is great!! I'm in Japan and I am teaching the children here. I didn't know it was Chinese? We play it the same way in England and call it French skipping.

I want to know how you do twist and diamond? I know only swapsies (English name) where you stand with the elastic between both feet and jump so that you are in the same position on the parallel elastic. On the way there you cross your feet in mid-air. Is this twist? And if so what is diamond.

There is also somewhere in Asia (I forget where) and they play by jumping from outside both ropes, but perpendicular to the ropes not parallel like we usually do. Their feet go under the first side and they land on top of the second side. They then have to jump out from between the two ropes and I believe they have to end up on the opposite side. I have only ever managed to end up in the middle, but then I am an aging 24...
