Meet the Author

Buddy Lee, president and founder of Jump Rope Technology, Inc., has fashioned a worldwide reputation with his incredible jump rope skills. He has performed in exhibitions for sports events, presidents, and world leaders in 24 countries.

Lee used rope jumping as a key part of his wrestling training to develop into a world-class and Olympic athlete. He was a 1992 Olympian in Greco-Roman wrestling and a 20-time U.S. national and Armed Forces champion in three different styles of wrestling. After earning a degree in secondary education from Old Dominion University, where he was a two-time All-American wrestler, he served 11 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he became a three-time national champion, a three-time World Military champion, and a three-time World Cup and Pan Am medalist. He also was voted outstanding wrestler in the 1992 national wresting championships and was Marine Athlete of the Year twice.

He served as the jump rope conditioning consultant to the U.S. Olympic Committee from 1996 to 2000, training 25 Olympic teams and many gold medalists. Today he consults with the U.S. Professional Tennis Association, the U.S. Figure Skating Association, and several other organizations. Buddy is the co-inventor of the Hyperformance swivel bearing ropes, designed to produce speeds of up to six revolutions per second and eliminate drag and friction present in other ropes. Buddy is also an international motivational speaker and author of rope jumping for several national sport magazines. He travels the country, training athletes and fitness enthusiasts with his jump rope system. Buddy resides in Woodbridge, Virginia.
