World Bboy Battle is a NYC based organization, led by former pro Bboy Frankie “Sirswift” Hernandez. WBB is committed to promoting the new Olympic sport of Breaking and dedicated to the well-being and success of its athletes.
Frankie “Sirswift” Hernandez was a former pro Bboy who danced and toured with Run DMC in the early 80’s as a member of the Magnificent Force Crew which also included Bboy pioneers and legend Mr.Wiggles and Pop Master Fabel. For over 20 years Frankie suffered years of frustration over underground Bboy competitions catering only to its competitors, judges crowning champions based on favoritism, and organizers exploiting pro Bboys.
So he developed a Bboy sports format, created a sports regulated 100-point scoring system, constructed a prize money distribution system and invested all his money in his savings account. On January 25 of 2015, he organized and launched the very first pro Breaking sports competition of its kind with the largest prize money in Bboy sports at the Queens Theatre in NYC. It was called WORLD BBOY BATTLE #1.
THE BBOY SPORT:
World Bboy Battle are pro Bboy sports competitions which test the world’s best Bboys at the highest level. A Bboy must advance through 3 levels of Battle—the Sick 16, Xtreme 8, and Ultimate 4, and win at WBB Championship Finals to be crowned BEST BBOY ON EARTH™.
Each level has three battle rounds—Powermoves, Footwork and Freestyle, where each competitor is required to perform their skills in those areas. A panel of judges score each competitor using a sports regulated 100-point scoring system, similar to gymnastics, based on 10 elements fundamental to Breaking. These elements are: Dance/Performance, Execution, Degree of Difficulty, Form, Speed, Balance, Strength, Flexibility, Creativity and Stamina.
At World Bboy Battle events, venues are transformed into custom Bboy sports arenas where world-class Bboys compete fiercely for world titles and grand prize money, and everyone experiences dramatic, suspenseful and thrilling Bboy sports.
Today, World Bboy Battle organizes the biggest Bboy sports competitions. We invite you to support this new Olympic sport and partner with World Bboy Battle to promote the sport of Breaking in the U.S. and around the world.
