No, there is no adverb form of skipping. The word skipping is the present participle of the verb to skip.

Well, it may or may not be an adverb depending upon the usage if the work "skipping" answers questions such as "how," "when," "where," "how much" in that scenario it would be an adverb.

So, in the sentence I am skipping. Skipping is clearly not an adverb, but in a sentence like I went to the school skipping, skipping is an adverb
