Alright, it’s been a week I landed in Singapore with my friends and australian dance family. Three crews (Common Ground, Team Cream, Skill@Will) were ready to represent Australia in bboying on this international comp in Singapore and pumped to get new exps, share their?unique dance, expression and passion.
100+ registered set up a thought in my mind, there’s gonna be a few hungry dancers around. My thoughts came real. Asia, Malaysia, Europe, USA, Oceania. Crews from all around the world were ready to battle and fight for nothing else than RESPECT.?Welcoming smiles, friendly people, no cops and crime anywhere nearby. Just positive vibes, thousands of people and music waiting to be heard. Continue reading Singapore – Radikal Forze Jam 2015
There are plenty of techniques, tips, tricks and stuff you can do to improve your fitness, body form and inner strength. However, none of that is actually working, when it does not relate to you. Many people use the gym, weightlifting to build up muscles, hoping the performance in dancing will increase. I am not saying it won’t, there are certainly similarities that can be applied across multiple disciplines, however, it looks to me as if you were asking sprinter how to prepare for gymnastics rings.

I just came up with new way of practising handstands and handstand pull ups. When doing standard handstand with wall support or without, muscles are used only until full straight position is reached, where body frame kicks in and all weight is pushed against joints only.
Following exercise eliminates this thanks to hands positioned in front of the body and not under, while whole back is supported by wall. The lower the legs you let go, the more pressure on your shoulders is going to be created. Picture above?will demonstrate this cool way how to build up some strength and body control. Give it a go and you will soon realise, why I call it “shoulder tears”. 🙂
My day has 8 workings hours, 6 sleeping hours, 1 hour of transport, 1 hour eating..and another 6 hours free for whatever I want to do.
That’s a lot and I have decided to invest those hours to self development and breaking. I bought checked lino for my living room so I can practise, which I have always dreamed about, however once I bought it I realised I don’t practise actually. I was missing motivation or purpose.
Now my mind is clear and I know what I am doing. Continue reading 1000 hours of breakin in 2015

Here I am now, in Australia, having dance workshop with american bboy Kareem, whom I was watching on VHS recordings from French competition called Total Session 4, while practising my silly moves in living room in Czech Republic 13 years ago. ?Almost looks like I am bringing these people into my life, slowly but surely, hey.
- believe is the strongest power you can support your decisions with
- you create your own reality by your beliefs (he’s been surrounded by the best bboys)
- everyone has the same story but different language (my translation of his thoughts)
- being recognised from this guy made me feel warm 🙂
Rock Force Crew vs Vagabonds.?One of the most influential battle I have ever seen in my life.?So much energy, passion and emotions put on the dance floor. So inspiring.
