Why do we continuously pursue something that seems ridiculous? After all, sometimes it will take a year to see progress. Sometimes you will have an off training day and you cannot make any of your sets work. It gets frustrating. Here at Generation BBoy, each of us train. We know what success and what failure feels like. We push our community to grow though events like the Rocky Mountain Breaking League.
With this in mind, it is a big deal to succeed at a difficult move. It is rewarding to do something so unique and hard. Something that makes people stop walking on the street and gasp in awe. Just like any other hobby, competing (battling), is rewarding within itself. I remember vividly the first time I moved on past preliminaries. While I did not win, I knew that I was not crazy. I knew that this passion of mine was a talent too. I knew that there were other people in the world who found this whole hip-hop scene just as enticing as I do.
Not only is it unique and rewarding but it also gives us a community. The breaking and hip-hop community in Colorado is inclusive, talented, and enthusiastic (among many other things). People come together under something that is so hard to do. That creates a bond almost nothing else can.
There are many reasons we break. There are many reasons besides being unique; rewarding; and having an amazing community. In fact, there are so many reasons it is not possible to fit it all on this blog! Why do you continue to break? Comment below and share your motivation!
