my jump rope story...
I learned to jump rope at the Hannibal Boxing Club when I was 11 years old. Although I eventually chose music and drumming over boxing, this experience had a profound impact on my sense of rhythm. The rhythms of the boxing gym: the "triplet" rhythm of the speed bag, the broken rhythm of the double-ended bag, the stutter-step rhythm of jabs and crosses and of course the shuffle rhythm of the jump rope, fascinated and hypnotized me.
Fast forward to later in life. Boxing was still inside me. I continued jumping rope well after my experiences in the ring. I found that the jump rope fine tuned my body's neurological system, unifying my rhythm. After a good jump rope session, I'd sit down at the drums and it felt as if the drums played themselves. Playing felt effortless.
I wanted music to jump with, but I couldn't find the right tempos or feels. So I created my own jump rope music by using the sound of the rope as the template for the music. The result was inspiring. I released the "Progressive Jump Rope Beats" album in 2017 on Bounce-Step Records. Fitness instructors around the world wrote to me with excitement. Also marathon runners and powerlifters and non-athletes. I was floored.
