Welcome to Dan the Skipping Man®

We’re passionate about helping organisations and individuals get the most from our services and products. We know skipping improves physical and mental health and we’re obsessive about helping everyone benefit from it.
Don't just take our word for it
Why should you be skipping?
There are so many benefits. It’s incredibly accessible and inclusive, allowing everyone to take part in an activity together. In addition, it helps develop fine and gross motor skills. And our unique tricks develop focus, concentration and speed of thought. But it doesn’t just stop there. Because skipping is better than running. If you exercise for just 20 minutes, it burns a third more calories.

In addition, it’s better for your body. Here comes the technical bit. Because the average peak force on the tibiofemoral joint (the knee hinge where the femur, tibia, and patella meet) is 30 percent greater in people who run compared to people who skip.
The best British-made ropes
Our ropes are anything but average. Because they are made in the UK to the highest possible standards. So they last for years. Whether you are buying a single rope for your child, or a bulk order for your school, our ropes will provide thousands of hours of enjoyment for children and adults alike.
