Jump Rope

I've heard somewhere that a 10 minute jump rope routine is equivalent to a 20 minute jog. Whether this is true or not, I do not know, but it is undeniable that skipping contributes a lot to fitness and footwork. Also skipping is far more convenient than jogging since you can easily do it within the confined space of your dojang. Jump rope is a standard exercise for boxing and other combat sports. It is also a fast way to start your warm-up and get your heart rate going.

The videos below gives some suggestions on skipping.
