I LOVE jumping rope. I've been jumping every day for about four years now. It's great for proprioception. It's great for balance. It's great for eye-hand co-ordination. For a time I jumped rope wearing a blindfold. To keep impact low, jump with your two feet together and just lift them off the floor an inch, just enough to clear the rope. I jump rope barefoot. I miss much less often than with shoes on. Remember to never heel strike. All the jumping takes place in the ball of the foot. Have fun.
