Question ID: 569401
I would like to learn how to jump rope like the boxers do for
training.  An example is Hillary Swank's character in the movie
Million Dollar Baby.  I would appreciate any sources that show the
steps, movements and any other training that is necessary to achieve
this skill.

Thank you --

The type of skills I am after are things like swinging the rope to the
right and to the left, and fancy feet movement.  Otherwise, I know
basic rope jumping.

A number of videos at Wolverine Sports:


Searching a little more specifically for boxing rope training, I
located the following:
