Skipping is an exercise where there is lot of pressure on the knee so it is better in case of young till the bones are fused as they can absorb shocks better and in case of adults and mature after the fusion of bones the strain and shocks will be on the knee and it may give rise to trouble in knee so it is better to avoid.Instead you can do jogging;swimming if you know;brisk walking on road and even on a treadmill.If at all you want to do it please get help from a trainer of physical exercise and get assessed your fitness before to avoid problems.
