NIKE | Nike Juku

Japan's entrance exams are notoriously difficult. In the years leading up to college, kids may study an extra 7.5 hours on top of the school day, often attending "cram schools" (juku). Being glued to their desks studying doesn't just take a toll on their physical health but on their mental and emotional state as well. But multiple studies show that short bursts of physical activity can directly affect academic performance. So we created Nike Juku, a program aiming to help students refresh their brains through short, simple study breaks where they get their bodies moving. The Japanese power group ATARASHII GAKKO! embodied the vibe we were looking for. We collaborated with them on their single "Woo! Go!"
