      It's not dangerous, it's actually safer on your knees and joints jumping with Kangoo jumps than without them. Just like anything new, it feels a little uncomfortable at first but you will quickly get used to the jumping motions.

      A bit out there, is it dangerous? It looks fun, yet I wouldn't like to fall over.
