COVERAGE

Battle Summary

Kid Karam knocked out Spindian in the first round, and Spindian never recovered. Seemed like Spindian didn’t seemed prepared for this type of battle. Sets were short, became repetitive and creativity seemed non-existant. In the first two rounds of battle, Spindian faced the crowd rather than his opponent, as if he were performing for the crowd rather than competing with Kid Karam.

Round 1 – Footwork

Kid Karam led off with a 1.5 minute energetic performance that focused on footwork, making sure all his freezes and kicks hit the beat showing off his musicality. Spindian countered with a short, clean set of Footwork showcasing a high degree of musicality, flexibility, creativity and balance. Judges scores showed Kid Karam winning by 6 point margin.

Round 2 – Powermove

Kid Karam launched a 1.25 minute powermove set that included airflares, ground power and his transitions seemed flawless. Spindian, facing the crowd and not his opponent, countered with a short power move set that combined 9 powermoves, though the degree of difficulty of the moves executed weren’t high.

Round 3 – Burner

Kid Karam led off with a 1.5 minute energetic performance that focused on footwork, making sure all his freezes and kicks hit the beat showing off his musicality. Spindian countered with a short, clean set of Footwork showcasing a high degree of musicality. Judges scores showed Kid Karam winning by 3 point margin.

Round 4 – Burner

Kid Karam launched a 1.25 minute powermove set that included airflares, ground power and his transitions seemed flawless.
