Jump is an unusual show made up of an exhilarating display of the Korean fighting art of Tae Kwon Do, acrobatics and sword fights crossed with a simple sitcom.

Set in an average Korean home, the family members are all surprisingly agile. They include a grandfather, a drunken uncle and a karate-chopping mother.

At first it's hard to believe the concept can work. The stream of pratfalls and karate kicks, and the splat-pow soundtrack seem to be heading on a frenetic path to nowhere, and, as producers of hip-hop and tango shows are very aware, it is hard to turn sports and social dances into theatre. What's so clever about Jump is that by limiting itself to such a basic structure, it can start to have unproblematic fun with the detail.
