A few years ago, I noticed some children skipping. I started to wonder when we stopped skipping. Skipping was something we did when we were happy and carefree. There was nothing on our minds but the next fun thing we were going to do. Then, school....homework, teachers..peer pressure....carefree no more.

Pretty much the only grownup I have seen skipping is Dennis Rodman. He knew it was a great way to get around without working too hard...

I've always thought that when I have the time and energy I'd like to set up a club. Just imagine the looks you'd get in a bunch of 20 people skipping... You could have races too. I suspect it would favour people with a lot of flexibility as well as CV fitness / power. I guess some forms of the long jump already involve skipping. There are actually several types of skipping, depending on the sequence of steps and hops. It's sort of inbetween walking (where you are never actually "airborne") and running, where both feet are off the ground between steps.
