How To Play Chinese Jump Rope ?

Chinese jump rope is a very simple and easy game played by children. To play this game, you need a skipping rope, or a jump rope, two players to hold the rope on both the sides and you can start the game.

This game basically involves repeating a series of steps without interrupting or pausing. If at any point you land on the rope or do not do the steps correctly, then your turn is over and it is the next player’s turn. The main steps that need to be followed in this game are In, Out, Side and On. The step In means the player who is jumping should have both his legs inside the rope, while Out means the other way round, i.e. both the feet have to be outside the rope, where one foot is on either side of the rope. Side means the player has to have his feet outside the rope on the same side; whereas On means one foot on top of the rope.

There are two ways of using these steps. Either it can be used in the order of In, Out, Side, On or you can chant these steps randomly. If the players involved can jump these steps perfectly, then you can try the next level where the ropes may be spread even farther.

This is not a difficult game and does not require too much preparation. You may be able to master the steps with a little bit of practice and concentration.
