How to navigate in same level list, with sub list in between?

- one (cursor at the beginning)
  - two
    - three
- four (move to this list)

Tried C-up and M-a, but they go through each sub level, instead of jumping directly to next same level list.

M-x org-next-item and M-x org-previous-item work like this: they move point to the next (or previous) list item at the same level.

You can bind them to keys if you want - e.g. C-c n and C-c p are not used in the Org mode keymap by default, so you might want to use them for this:

(define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c n") #'org-next-item)
(define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c p") #'org-previous-item)
