Originally published in 1926. Skipping has long held its own as one of the free and joyful activities of childhood and has always played an important role in teaching the young, spring, lightness and co-ordination of movement essential to the harmonious development of the body. The well illustrated contents contain much advice on all aspects of skipping including exercises, dancing steps, individual and couples skipping, positions etc. Many of the earliest books on physical education and sport, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
