7-Time World Champion & 11-Time Guinness World Records Holder
Silverdale Normal School
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, Nigeria, Peru, South Korea, Sweden, Tanzania, Thailand and Vietnam. He has performed in 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.
Yesterday I performed my first jump rope school assembly program for the 2016-2017 school year. I've had a busy summer traveling and performing, but there's something special about the first school assembly of a new year. I got a call a couple weeks ago from a Native American boarding school in western Oklahoma. They have around 600 students from all over the country ranging in grades from 4-12. It was a packed house and I was excited to be able to start the year performing my odd mix of jump rope, unicycle, audience participation and glow ropes at this awesome school.
I am finally back in the states after a whirlwind trip to Suhag and Cairo Egypt. Alicia and I had a great time visiting some friends we made last time as well as meeting many new people (and of course putting on many jump rope shows and workshops). We started off on a bit of a sour note when our Delta flight had a broken radar and we were stuck sitting in the airport for many hours waiting on another plane to get us to Atlanta. When we finally landed at 2am in Atlanta, we had obviously missed our connection and were put on a different flight 16 hours later. I fly over 150K miles per year on Delta and this year has been ridiculous with mechanical delays and hopefully they start getting their maintenance figured out...I digress. Anyway, when we finally made it to Cairo we really didn't have any downtime.
Jump rope shows everywhere! I have been so busy this year traveling around the country performing for Jump Rope for Heart events, school assemblies, Upward award nights and more! In fact, I have only set foot at home something like 4 days this year. I'm actually heading out the door again for another trip to Cairo, Egypt so I will have to make a more elaborate update at another time. I'm excited to spend another 10 days in the ancient world before bouncing back to the states. Anyway, I apologize for not updating things much lately, but when I have tons of shows, I don't seem to have any time to talk about them. Have a great spring and I promise to post a more reasonable update when I get back from Egypt.
I spent last week filming an updated version of my Single Rope Skills jump rope video! I have been wanting to do this for quite some time and I am so excited that it is finally filmed! I've put up more information about the project over at Jump Rope Secrets. I will be making the videos available over there as soon as they are edited. There will be no DVD of this project and it will only be available over at my streaming video website. I love this new way of doing things since I can put the videos up as they are completed instead of waiting until an entire jump rope DVD is finished. I'm off to Phoenix today to do some jumping tomorrow!
What a month! I just got back from 3 weeks traveling around Egypt where I was able to perform for thousands of people and teach a 4-day workshop to a small team in Cairo. It was a trip that came out of nowhere and turned out to be one of the best trips we've taken in quite some time. We also got to experience more rain than anyone living could remember. The people, the food, the sights...everything was amazing and we can't wait to go back!
It's Halloween! As is quite typical for me this time of year, I am bouncing around the country performing my jump rope show in schools and at Fall Festival events. Today I had a school in Grand Rapids, MI that had some very excited kids. Tonight I will be performing at an event that is expected to have 3,000-5,000 people in attendance. It should be a ton of fun and lots of energy from those sugared up children! I performed at a school in Flint yesterday and had a show at a different Fall Festival in Hoover, AL 2 days ago (Wednesday night). Yeah, it's busy. Oh.....I'm also going to Egypt on Monday!
Explore Tulsa did a TV interview with me last week. Check it out!
Yesterday I finally broke my 11th Guinness World Records Title! This one was for the most skips in one hour and I have to say, this one was tough. I attempted this record a couple weeks ago and missed it by 250 jumps so I had to give it another go. I contacted a team in the Dallas area (big thanks to HFS Jump Force for counting and witnessing) and they came out to be the official judges for the event. Everything was set and yet...not my best record setting experience.
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.
