Jump!

June 24, 2007

JUMP! is a feature-length character-driven documentary about competitive jump rope that follows kids on five teams from around the country who push physical and psychological limits in pursuit of winning the World Championship. Part extreme sport, part art form, their moves are masterfully choreographed and bursting with rhythm, sweat and originality. These teens sacrifice everything to get where they are and each has his or her own reason to be so driven. After arduous drilling and mind-boggling performances, rivalry and collaboration have dramatic unexpected results.

Mark is accompanied by five dynamic rope jumpers from the BOHOPPERS precision jump rope team, based in Florida. Mark's lead and Bo Bohannon's direction (33 years of teaching experience), make the 40 skills detailed and easy to follow. In 1996, this video was selected by the American Heart Association as its exclusive educational video for the 1996-1997 Jump Rope for Heart National Program. Mark recommends this Original Instructional video as a prerequisite for Videos 2, 3 & 4 in his series. Please contact Mark for information on his World Tour, professional jump ropes, and other videos in his series available on VHS and DVD.
