10 Year Anniversary - 10 things about life and breaking

For our 10 year anniversary, we’d like to share some things we’ve learned about how breaking makes life seem easier and how life and breaking are similar.  1.) Breaking makes life seam easier We have all heard that “breaking ain't easy”, and that's because it is not! Not at all! Breaking is the hardest thing I've done. It makes everything else EASY.  I've worked my whole life at it (14 years) and I still wouldn't consider myself a great bboy. It is a life long learning process. I know that if I keep pushing, keep focusing, keep having fun, keep training day after day, keep going to workshops and linking up with great bboys and picking their brain, and continuing...

There’s magazines, interviews, DVD commentary, tutorials, making-ofs, breakdowns and more. Sure you may watch...

Watch this video for immediate boost of personal everything.  Listen to me. PAIN IS TEMPORARY! It may last for a minute, or an hour, or a day, or even a year. But eventually it will subside and something else will take it's place. If I quit however, it will last forever. Some of you are spoiled. Just the bottom line, your parents have done everything for you. We're going to keep it real tonight. Some of you are spoiled brats. Every time you ever got in trouble, someone in your house got you out of it! Every time you did something you were not suppose to do, your parents got you out of it.

Bboying is no longer just a street dance that keeps kids busy. It is exploding into so many new and mostly wonderful things.  Whereas it used to just be be boys from the Bronx who were breaking, now any person around the world can find that their calling is breaking. How can someone talk about how the new generation is wack or not true to bboying, when it was, is, and always will be about having fun, peace, unity, showing off, and original self expression. The nature of any culture that has originality at its center is to evolve....
