WBB Founder Frankie “Sirswift” Hernandez is a Bboy pioneer and former pro Bboy who danced and toured with Run DMC and Afrika Bambaattaa in the early 80’s.
Since then, Frankie suffered over 30 years of frustration over Breaking organizers’ inability to provide fair competition to its athletes. And so his entrepreneurial spirit and passion for Breaking led him to create and develop World Bboy Battle, a professional Breaking sports tournament league whose foundation is based on fair play.
On January 25 of 2015, Frankie realized his vision when he launched the very first professional sports competition for Breaking at the Queens Theatre in NYC. It was called WORLD BBOY BATTLE #1.
