WORLD BBOY BATTLE SPORTS

PRO BREAKING SPORTS USING A SPORTS REGULATED SCORING SYSTEM

OUR ORGANIZATION

World Bboy Battle (WBB) is a Pro Breaking sports league who organize a series of International pro Bboy sports competitions to test the world’s elite Breakers and thrill spectators.

Founded by Pro Bboy pioneer Frankie “Sirswift” Hernandez  in 2015, World Bboy Battle (WBB) was created to foster growth, popularity, and acceptance of Breaking sports worldwide. Since then, WBB has evolved to become a platform that serves to excite the global Breaking community, educate both the avid and casual fans, and empower communities through its very own WBB foundation.

Using a sports regulated 100-point scoring system and a modified Bboy sports format we created, WBB elevates Breaking sports to its highest level.

At each WBB event, venues are transformed into custom Breaking sports arenas where pro Bboys/Bgirls compete fiercely and with great sportsmanship, conduct that defines the beauty and essence of the Bboy culture.

THE SEARCH TO FIND “THE BEST BBOY ON EARTH™” & “THE BEST BGIRL ON EARTH™”

The World Bboy Battle Championship Tournaments are the world’s premier test to find the Best Bboy and Bgirl on Earth™. They are renowned as the ultimate test for the world’s elite Breakers as well as a thrilling experience for spectators. Since it’s inception in 2015, interest and participation at World Bboy Battle sports has been steadily growing. With Breaking proposed for the 2024 Olympics in Paris, Breaking once again is in the spotlight.

THERE IS NO OTHER TRUE TEST OF BREAKING SPORTS

WBB created the sport of Breaking to fill a void—no other true sport of Breaking existed. From Redbull BC One to Battle of the Year, all other Breaking competitions neglected to accurately test Breaking using a true sports scoring system and sports format. Even the Breaking competitions at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games missed vital components and elements of a true Breaking sport.

World Bboy Battle is in its 4th year.

This year we plan to live stream the WBB2019 Championships on Facebook, YouTube and at worldbboybattle.com.

It is a 2-day International Pro Breaking tournament where the top 16 from the qualifiers advance to the championships and battle to become THE BEST BBOY ON EARTH™

There are three judges who enter 10 scores for each athlete after each round.  Each score pertains to an element fundamental to breaking. The scores of each element are then averaged out to give one total score for each athlete after each round.

The 10 elements are: Dance. Creativity. Execution. Form. Difficulty. Speed. Balance. Strength. Flexibility. Stamina.

WBB uses a 4 level, 3 round per level system. The Bboy rounds are broken to Powermoves, Footwork and Freestyle. For a Bboy to win using this format, he must have an extensive vocabulary in every area of Breaking as this format exposes the flaws and weaknesses of Bboys.

WBB is the world’s only Breaking sports competition with a unique 100-point scoring system, similar to gymnastics, that can rank and track each Bboy’s career.

Some of the current and past Bboy champions WBB has invited include Thesis, Nino, Menno, Victor, Hong 10, Gravity, Kid Columbia, Issei, Wing Zero, Lilou, Neguin, Dany, Lil G, and even Bumble Bee, the 2018 Youth Olympic Games Gold Medal winner in Breaking.

WBB Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity organization launched in 2018 as a way to extend the WBB mission to increase national and global participation in Breaking sports as a way to instill self-confidence, promote self-expression and encourage an active lifestyle.
