Exercise can take all kinds of forms, and for many kids in Hong Kong, rope skipping is the way to stay healthy and have fun amid the pandemic.
According to Ken Cheng, who has been a rope skipping coach for 15 years, there are many ways to play rope skipping.
“In the game for singles, we compete on skilled jumps and speed,” Cheng said while adding that they can also compete in teams which usually consists of 3-5 people.
The intense cardio requires a strong body and mind which is good training for young students.
“It is good for preventing heart disease and improving vital capability,” Cheng said.
He further explained, “People can choose to play by themselves or as a team, so it can also be a good way for children to communicate with others and help build their teamwork spirit.”
This sport which has grown in Hong Kong over the past 20 years now sees more than 500 athletes training in different clubs, among which most are part-time players.
