Did you know Shanghai had a jump rope enthusiast team? Neither did we until we stumbled upon this pretty awesome video on Youku. While we could’ve done without the silly soundtrack, we were mighty impressed by their jump roping shenanigans. Watch these kids share ropes, switch ropes, do double back flips between ropes and off each other without missing a beat.
According to their website, the “Enlivened” Shanghai Pattern Jump Rope Group (跃动·上海花样跳绳队) was begun in 2003. Since then, they’ve toured countless cities in China, even showing up on Hunan TV’s “Happy Camp” and Heilongjiang TV’s “Happy Friday” shows.
