United we stand divided we fall.. Here is a big announcement! 8 of the biggest events in the world have come together to create a champions battle at the end of the year. The World BBoy Series, Undisputed! It will be a 1 on 1 battle where the 8 one on one winners of Freestyle Session Worldwide, Red Bull BC One, The Notorious IBE Fanpage, Chelles Battlepro, Outbreak Europe, R16 KOREA, Battle Of The Year, UK B-Boy Championships, will get a shot at each other and be crowned as champion of champions.
To be honest this is a major step up in the community. All the biggest events coming together and building something for the bboys/bgirls to work for. There is a new challenge and the question is who is going to take this title home. People ask whats next in breaking or where it will be in 5 years. With something like this coming together it is showing us there is big opportunities for the future. We all have to elevate ourselves skill wise and professionally.
How many battles have you won?? I’m sure many of us have got a few under our belt. It’s not easy but it can be done. So usually when winning a battle you are given some kind of prize. Now don’t get it wrong it is always appreciated to receive something and we know it is not easy putting on events for promoters. Have you ever won something and wondered why they even gave you the prize?
Sometimes it seems as if vendors just throw whatever leftovers they have to give away. If you want your brand to be seen then make sure you give the winners something they will want to wear or share. A lot of promoters do a good job of making sure the prizes are put together well. There are many funny stories that we have heard, but here is one that we hope you will enjoy. It is based on a true story so please check it out, share and enjoy.
What’s the weirdest prize you won?? Feel free to share your story and leave it in the comments.
Also this is a skit and we are not professional actors we are just trying to give a message. haha
So here is a play around video Saso and myself came up with called Hip Hop’s Do’s & Don’ts. With our first episode we jump straight to address the modern day E-boy. Hope to not offend any eboys, it is a joke with some truth to it. Many of the comments you see on youtube videos are straight comedy. Some can be real honest comments but other are just non sense with no fact behind them.
We hope you enjoy the video and i’m sure some of you will understand. We will hopefully be bringing you more and more content when we have the time.
Here is a video of a battle Renegades won over the weekend. It was good to get down with the crew again. Battling along side Kid David, Tony Styles and 2 new prospects Mike and Marthy Mcfly. Its always interesting getting down with the guys but got to #85 and with some good battles through the night. Thanks to the crew for helping me get one step closer to the goal. Shout out to the crews we battled and making us work for it.
A little late but never too late. Here is a photographic journey. 2013 was a busy year traveling around the world. 21 countries and a lifetime of great memories. Aside from Breaking I have been learning photography. It has been 3 years of learning but I’m still an amateur. Something fun to do and learn. Meeting so many cool photographers around the world that do this as their craft. It motivates me to learn more and more. So this is a year in photos of some cool locations. Honestly I wish I would of took more, but still learning.
Here is a video that was put together by Strife. Your dreams are what keeps you pushing forward to accomplish more in life. Just remember for dreams to become a reality it takes a lot of work. You will fail many times over but if you don’t know that feeling then the feeling of succeeding wouldn’t be as rewarding. Really enjoyed the voice over because it was moving.
Last week for the Holiday myself along with the support of one of my sponsors, Biggest & Baddest. Decided to have a freeze photo contest on Instagram. I just wanted to show an appreciation to all the support I have received for the year. So in return the contestants would get some prizes. Honestly the response was huge with over 1000 photos added to the #roxfreezeframe hashtag. I was suppose to announce the winners yesterday but due to the overwhelming response I wasn’t able to pick just 2 winners. We decided it was best to give out 4 prizes so a 3rd and 4th prize winners were added. I just want to say thank you to everyone and thanks for taking part in this fun contest. So many cool freezes and creative freezes. I hope everyone uses them in there dance and not just their photos!
It is the Holiday Season and since it is the giving season. As a way to give back too all my supporters and people that follow me through this social media stuff. I have decided to put together an Instagram contest along with the support from one of my sponsor Biggest & Baddest.
So here is the idea and rules
@RoxRite95 and @BiggestBaddest Freeze Frame Contest:
HOW TO ENTER:
#1 Take a pic doing your best freeze
#2 Post picture on INSTAGRAM
#3 Follow @RoxRite95 and @BiggestBaddest
#4 Hashtag #RoxFreezeFrame
Winners will be announced Jan. 1st Winners chosen at Random.
Good luck to all participants.
My advice would be to choose your favorite or signature freeze. Along with cool locations. So scout your city streets.
Better late then never here is a clip I edited from my trip to this years Red Bull BC One and FreestyleSession World Finals. In this dance you will never stop learning from the experiences we live through. Went from Seoul to Tokyo on this trip. 10 years ago my first overseas trip was to Japan. 10 years later, back again for the Freestylesession World Finals. For me this was a big one #84 on my chase to 100. After BC One I felt a little disappointed, in myself more then anything. So when it was time to battle at Session I felt like I had to prove something to myself. Ine the end we took home the rings! Just some thoughts so check out the video for some more insight on what went down for me.
A big shout out to Nasty Ray and El Nino for the motivation and for pushing me step it up. Always dope battling with these guys.

Watched this little piece on some bboys in Tijuana and what they do to make some extra money. I had head before that many bboys in Mexico do this occasionally to make ends meet. Personally I had never seen it before. So this was my first time watching it on video. This goes to show what breaking can do to help some people. This was a very touching piece. Let’s not forget what the power of Hip Hop and breaking can do for people. Also for all these spoiled bboys/bgirls, some just make what they can with what they have. Limitations are only there if you allow them to be.
