Are you new to this dance?
Even if you are, you must have heard of bboy battles.
It’s a competition where 2 or more bboys pit their skills against each other, round after round.
It is the stage where bboys show off their skills, their talent and their hard work.
Their finely-tuned pieces of choreography that they have masterfully and effortfully put together over the past months (or even years.) And for the more liberated — the way they get to freestyle to whichever music the DJ decides to play that day.
Needless to say, as a newbie, it is your duty to watch a few of these battles.
It is your duty to understand how battles work, and how you can be a part of this culture.
By watching some of these videos, you get to intimately understand how the culture works, and how the top bboys in the world master their artform.
You get to be inspired to want to up your game, because every bboy out there seems to be “killing” it.
You’ll see all sorts of different flavas and styles, and you’ll learn that no ONE style is better than the other — giving you the confidence that you too can become the best — if you work hard.
You’ll orgasm at the different ways bboys interpret the music, and how they seem to be able to ebb, flow and ride the music as if they were born with it.
You’ll get to imagine as if you WERE at the biggest bboy events in the world, with the crowd hyping around you and you experiencing the energy “live”.
The only problem is…
You don’t know which video you should watch.
You’ve watched a few here and there and they all seemed…. “Meh”.
They seemed a little “dead”.
The crowd wasn’t cheering, the video was boring and the music didn’t seem to give you the energy you thought it would.
You thought that you might not have been searching for the right videos.
But how would you know which one to look for?
Where can you find these bboy battles that are full of hype, energy and just pure awesomeness?
Well, guess what?
Now you can.
