I used to skip on one leg and wondered why I didn’t know how to skip with both legs. Then, I thought where I could learn to skip? YouTube! I doubted if there would be an online tutorial on skipping since it’s just learning how to jump over a rope but found that YouTube had a couple of tutorials. I selected one and watched it.

The video motivated me, gave me tips on how to skip and explained why skipping is good for my health. I grabbed my trainers and skipping rope and went outside to skip. I tried using the tips for the tutorial and struggled at first but I kept trying. One thing YouTube tutorials have taught me is the importance of practice. I know how to skip with both legs now but I keep practising in order to get better. I used to think I would watch a tutorial once and know how to do the exact thing a YouTuber does in one attempt.
If you don’t get it the first time, try again. It’s not just YouTube tutorials but even recipes I’ve tried online. Things may go wrong the first time but you never know it may get better the second time. When things go south, you can still enjoy the results that you created. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

What is your favourite online tutorial and what’s it about?
