Walking along Bonifacio High Street, I spotted a guy pulling off some pretty crazy dance moves and another guy filming with camera phone.  I am a curious person by nature so I had to go over and find out what is was all about and here I was introduced to the world of ‘Jerking’.

Jerking started in 2009 in the streets of LA that started with the New Boyz’s song “You’re A Jerk”, which started the movement. Its a type of street dance that combines hip hop, shuffling, cripwalk, and a little bboy. Another dance was also combined to the jerking movement called the “dougie” which sparked with Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How To Dougie”. Jerking became a really big powerhouse dance throughout the world with crews coming from America, London, Mexico, Canada, and some parts of Asia and other countries.

The Philippine Jerking Association started in late 2009 by the first Philippine jerk crew “Stunnaz” of Cebu, and the jerking giants of the Philippines, Ovalista Jerkers/Pinoy Swagg. With some support from Dumaguete artists “Midnasty” and inspiration of the pioneer crews of jerking.  The Philippine Jerking Association has grown so much from its various events “Gathering 1-3″ to their very own music video of Filipino jerkers, “Gago Trix” by Midnsaty.  They see a very bright future for their association they see themselves growing each and every day.
