I don't understand how it's acceptable to stream an event like bc one cypher/camp with a cellphone. Even small jams have better production. It wouldnt be that bad if they a camera man filming the event alongside the live stream. They don't even need an expensive setup. A gimbal and budget camera would do the job.

He spins very fast on his head without any protection and he doesnt have a bald spot, how it's possible ? Good genetic ?

Hi I actually use a padded heaspin beanie from generationbboy to practise windmill halo and headspin. I would like to know where can I buy a cap which is padded (to prevent the baldness) for practising heaspin and windmill ? There are a lot of padded beanie but not a lot of cap. The only one padded cap that I found is this : http://www.breakdancingninja.com/headspin_hat.html and I wouldlike to know if somebody have already try this cap and what does he think? Generationbboy and Seriousbrand also offer caps but this is not padded cap : https://www.generationbboy.com/collections/hats-and-caps/products/spincap-headspin-cap https://seriousbboy.com/shop/serious-spincap-camou/

I know that is better to use an helmet for practising headspin but it's not possible to do windmill with an helmet.

Sorry for my english and thanks for your answer!

So I don't know if anyone has thought of this or done this before, but I have thought about this for a while.

I have been unable to headspin for a while. I get that I need to learn taps and all that stuff, but even when I'm attempting drills, I only get half a rotation before my body refuses to keep going out of not being used to spinning on my head in circles. It's frustrating. Basically, for headspins, I feel it needs to be something that happened to you in order to get how it feels.

So what is this wonderful idea I had? Well, it is either the dumbest or smartest idea to happen. But dammit, I want to get those headspins down. So bear with me here.

I was thinking that I can do a headstand on something that swivels, say a roundabout on a playground or a swivel chair. You do a headstand right in the middle over where the center of rotation is. For safety, you can clutch the bars if that will help.

Next, you have a friend or yourself push your around in a circle. You can try various positions, like straight legs, bent, whatever. The goal is to try to get that centrifugal force feeling by doing it. You can shout "Stop" or something at your friend if you want it to stop (in case someone is going crazy over the danger of this stunt).

Is this a cool idea? What are other things that I can try to use to spin around on? (I tried my swivel chair, but it was too shakey to get a steady headstand on). Would this work?

Thanks for reading :P

So I’m super new, as in I can’t do anything. But I wanna learn how to do power moves cause they’re cool, and I don’t wanna learn any other breakdancing things otherwise. How should i get started and how should I train?

Hey /r/bboy! I figure you're here for good b-boy/b-girl related content. So here's some content, and you can tell me if it's any good.

I write blog articles that dig deeper into breaking, its values, methods, etc. Ideally, it's content that benefits breakers of all levels, and at the same time, shows the substance behind the dance moves to general audiences. You'll see some ideas from other subject areas (my most recent piece centers on a concept from psychology).

I didn't practice flares at all throughout the month of May, so here I am practicing. I also have some wrist pain but that has subsided for the most part. Any tips for my legs to avoid the ground while flaring?

Also the reason why I didn't practice flares from the first day I got them to the end of May is because I also wanted to achieve airflares. Should I train them separately or together? EDIT: Also practicing video editing skills

Hey! Any jams happening in Japan (preferably Tokyo) big or small between June 12th and 20th?

Thanks!

I decided that I shall focus on toprocks, get downs, flow, freeze, and freeze transitions for my first year but I have a habit of beatboxing while training. Should I remove this habit? My enemy might poke fun at me when I'm in a battle.

The wrist placement is a little off, but I'm not sliding the feet as much and it feels like I have more control. And my joints got strong enough to do it on concrete. I'm trying to get that clean flare, before I work on consecutive flares. Anyway to develop the second flare, so I can work on it in the future when I get that perfect 1 flare? https://www.instagram.com/p/BjsOeE7l5wm/
