If you don't want to be called on to be part of the show, sit in the section closest to the entrance. Very back seats are excellent b/c it is elevated and you get a full view of the stage. They also have a concession stand with popcorn and drinks at very reasonable costs that you can eat during the show.

Describing this show as "one part kung-fu flick" and "a rare opportunity to see the kind of action you'd see in Jackie Chan and The Matrix™ movies" is false advertising. This is a children's show geared more like the Power Rangers.

Good for kids. Karate Exhibition stuff was great, as was the acrobatics. The overall "play" or story line was a little weak from an adult perspective.

Absolutely loved this show. I'm a big martial arts and comedy fan, so this show was right up my alley. The performers were amazing and very approachable after the show. Seats were better than I expected. Great for all ages.

Description

JUMP isn’t just about jumping. It’s also about flipping, punching and major butt-kicking. There are no second-takes, wires or special effects for these actors, who have gone through years of extensive martial arts training.

This international hit takes place in a traditional Korean home, although its inhabitants are anything but — the entire family challenges each other in martial arts and acrobatic displays. These skills are put to use when burglars break in and get to experience the family’s talent firsthand.
