I still have my Chinese Jump Rope that I had from my childhood. It is green and white and they usually came in 2 blended or woven colors.
Think of the Chinese Jump Rope as a really large rubber band. One person would stand with the band around their ankles and the other person would stand about 3 feet away with the band around their ankles. Then, of course, you had a person in the middle jumping, just like with a traditional jump rope.
If memory serves me correctly, you would criss cross your ankles in the Chinese Jump Rope until you almost tripped.
