    JUMP!!

    Jump rope that is

    Doesn't sound hard does it, how about doing it sitting on your knees with your shins on the ground?

    How about doing it almost non stop for 2.5 miles in the Maceys Thanksgiving day parade.

    Check these young ladies out from the Kings Fire cracker jump rope team. I bet your thinking,, so its jump rope, Trust me I've never seen any one jump rope like this.

    Saw it a few nights ago, and it's pretty amazing stuff, especially for a bunch of 4th through 6th graders.

    That's an incredible performance for a most deserving audience.

    Yeah, it's almost as much fun watching the audience reaction, huh?

    That left me with my mouth open.

    Just thinking about the hundreds of hours of training and rehearsal to do that makes me really admire those girls.

    Thanks for posting.
    Best regards,

    I kept watching it over and over,, I still can't get over them kneeling and jumping rope,, had to be hard on the knees

    That and when they had a whole group in front of one girl with the rope. One slinging the rope and ten more jumping at the same time.

    I was checking out their website,, 2 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    I was actually relieved when I finally noticed that the floor logo was changing... Whew, it's actually several performances cut together. I was trying to figure out how they could keep that going for so long.

    But yeah, the audience reactions... I sure couldn't do that!

    Simply amazing

    That is one hardworking talented group of girls, and I know there are some amazing parents, and coaches behind them as well.

    Mind boggling!
