    Try to not lock your knees while landing after every jump. Have some springiness to it.

    I'm assuming you are landing on the front ball of your feet, try doing some quad stretches prior, and perhaps some knee rotation or whatever those strange moves are to help get things going.

    Keep the knees slightly bent the whole time, wear basketball shoes or an athletic shoe, and don't jump on concrete! I bought some interlocking foam pads and jump on that. Haven't had any knee problems or soreness either.

    Jumping rope is far less taxing on your knees then running too.

    Maybe ease into it?

    I jump rope 2-3x a week, I don't even have a forgiving surface, I jump on concrete (tried the foam mat, but it sucks balls, and besides, I like to move around a lot when jumping - forward/backward/lateral). No knee problems or issues whatsoever.

    I just make sure I'm 100% recovered from one session prior to jumping again.

    How long did you jump for?

    It should be a lot easier on your joints then running by far, and plenty of people run on concrete.

    doing a "running" style jump would probably cause less stress on your knees

    I don't see how any kind of jumping would cause any serious knee stress unless you overdo it.

    People play basketball on concrete, that surely causes 100x more stress than little hops. Besides, you are landing on the balls of your feet so barely any force is absorbed by the knees in the first place, unlike in running, basketball, etc.

    If jump ropes are actually bad for knees, then wouldn't olympic lifting and box jumps be absolutely horrendous?
