Combining his mastery of rope skipping (which has affectionately brought him the nickname of Rope Master), the athletic prowess of unicycling, the art of poi spinning, glow-in-the-dark ropes, audience participation and motivational speaking, fused is the must-see show for schools.
Peter has performed all over the world since he began jumping rope in 1986. His program has been seen in such countries as Australia, Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Cambodia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Kenya, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, South Korea, Sweden, Tanzania, Thailand and Vietnam. He has performed in almost every state in the US and has been seen on television programs such as Fox News and ESPN, as well as worked with Men's Health Magazine and the Wall Street Journal. Due to his expertise in rope skipping he also was contracted to double for Adam Sandler in Jack & Jill for a Double Dutch scene in the movie.
**Peter has the official Guinness World Records record for most skips in one minute on a unicycle (237). He also has 2 additional World Records for the most bum skips in 30 seconds and the most skips in one minute while juggling a football.
I heard it through the grapevine the other day that someone has been trying to beat some of the Guinness World Records I set last year. One of them definitely was broken (my bum skip record is in need of a redo since it has officially been defeated) and the other one is tentative. I decided to take the challenge head on and break the records again. Since I'm still in rehab for my arm, the bum skip record will have to wait as that particular motion is fairly painful at the moment. The football (soccer) juggling record on the other hand, that one I can still do! I have been doing a bit of this during my shows lately so I haven't lost the rhythm. In fact, it only took me 3 days of practice to not only get back to where I was before, but bypass it!
This year is flying by isn't it? I just finished an 8 week tour where I got to travel all around the country performing in lots of interesting places, including my final state, Maine! However, there has been a bit of a cloud that has been hanging over me since the middle of November and now that I'm getting an idea of what to do...I'm fighting back! So what's the deal you ask? Where to begin...
Guinness World Records featured my record for juggling a soccer ball while skipping in their monthly sports vlog. Also, they just approved my record for the most skips in 30 seconds on one foot so I now officially have 4 records!
After umpteen hours in 3 different flying cans, I finally arrived home and promptly went to sleep for 2 days. The last 3 weeks have been an incredible adventure, but I am glad to be sleeping in my own bed again. I have a hard time expressing how impressed I am by the improvement I've seen in the jumpers in the past 3 years. They seem to be the embodiment of the whole eat, sleep, jump idea. Needless to say, I was impressed with the jumpers. But even more so, I am blown away by the connection we're able to make with these kids every time I visit. I made some great new friends (like Amon who is one the funniest, happiest people I have ever met), learned some new skills and once again braved the eating of weird animal parts at the legendary Carnivore.
While I was in Africa, I had a great opportunity to meet some new people. There was a whole group from Seattle (some of whom I have known for years, others were a bit on the younger side and I met them for the first time). Kaitlyn was our only skipper from Canada and we had one guy come in from Japan named Jun Haratake. Jun is in charge of the Fusion competitions in Japan and is very well known and respected in the Double Dutch Fusion world.
Today I finally defeated the hardest record I've been training for! I hopped a mile on one foot while jumping rope. If you've been following my training logs, you know how much I hate doing this, but I can safely say that it's over now! It was 41 degrees out when I headed over to the University of Tulsa to try this one. I met up with 2 assistant track coaches and the athletic operations director. They were kind enough to brave the weather and be my timekeepers/judges. There job was to make sure I didn't cheat. We also had the local newspaper and one of the TV stations. I would love to tell you more, but I've got to pack up and head out to Africa. I'll write some more details while I'm sitting on the plane and post them when I get a chance. Have a great next couple of weeks! I know I will.
Today I got an email from Guinness World Records stating that my record application for "Most Bum Skips in 30 Seconds" has been accepted and I now officially have that record as well! They even have my record up on their site (though I still wonder why my unicycle record hasn't show up there yet....hmmmm). Click Here to check that out. I also finally made a mile on one foot during practice today in 20 minutes 16 seconds! I can't even express how happy I am about that.
I am heading to Africa again! I just booked my flight for December and will be helping out One World One Rope with the 4th annual East Africa Rope Skipping Tournament. I wasn't able to make it last year, but look forward to spending 2 weeks teaching some awesome kids how to jump rope this year! Last time I was there my unicycle was a huge hit with the kids in Tanzania, but this time around I will be spending time in Nairobi, Kenya (I promise I won't visit any malls, just in case).

I want to personally welcome you to my website.
Over the past 25 years I've had many great opportunities to travel the globe performing as a master rope jumper and unicyclist.Now I want to bring what I've learned to you. Whether you're interested in booking a live performance or picking up one of my world-class instructional dvd's. I would love to spend some time with you teaching and showing what rope skipping is all about.
All the work and all the years that I've been practicing, it's all been for you. One rope, one wheel, one word...füsed.
