Movement is Life
My name is Orlando Jimenez and the CEO of Fight Rope. As a lifelong practitioner and student of martial arts with my foundation in wrestling and God the athletic community has used jumping rope as a great tool to sharpen their timing, footwork, and cardiovascular system.
The combat sports community uses ropes as precursor to battle. Having been handed my first rope by my dad Victor Lujan Sr. Who was a professional boxer and lifelong health and fitness advocate and my first coach I used it to become a serious competitor in sports. Not only did it shape my life and the life of my athletic siblings, but I hope this tool will help shape and influence your life whether or not you are an athletic minded person or concentrate your energy towards other purposes.
I believe in building a foundation for health that will allow you to grow with a tool you use for a lifetime. Some of you may be well practiced and others this may be the first time you ever get to hold a fight rope in your life. So, let's get started!
Movement is Key
The first thing is to purchase your own Fight Rope and take a journey with us to help introduce you to our family of scholar brawlers. However, if you don't have one yet you can do the movements with us!
The next item is either a comfortable pair of sneakers or barefoot on a mat. Then you must always have water, sports clothing though nothing to baggy. After that you are ready to go into your first movement. Just know that with anything worth doing have fun and allow for errors. Errors happen and that is okay, you can improve!
