Man jumps like a monkey - level 3, A12

20-04-2012 21:00

Jyoti Raju is an unbelievable man. He does a show for visitors in India. He is able to jump from one rock to another like a monkey and people gave him a title, “Monkey King.”

Jyoti is 23 years old and he started practicing this new form of acrobatic art only four years ago. At that time he was thinking about his life, about his future. He didn’t know what to do with his life. He was also thinking about jumping off a cliff. He didn’t do that though. Instead, he started practicing what monkeys do very easily. He became friends with monkeys and learnt from them.

Now, he wants to popularize his art among kids and he is looking for help from the government or individuals. He wants to travel around the country and teach kids what he knows.

You can see his skills in the video.
