RYUGI 〜流儀〜 Vol.26 – Journey to the Land of the Rising Sun – Event Recap

To some people, ‘breakdancing’ might be thought of as past time or something younger kids participate in, but actually the Breakin’ community is still very alive, even in the local Sydney community with a wide array of people of all ages. Ryugi, organised by local bboy Hideboo, is an ongoing series of breakin’ events which aims to connect and help grow the Sydney scene. In the most recent event in the series, Ryugi has collaborated with internationally recognized Found Nation crew where the winner would have the opportunity to battle in Japan against some of the worlds best as a seeded guest battler.

The event saw many dancers of all ages come through, with over 100 participants battling in the 1v1 Breakin’ battles and 1v1 Top Rock battles as well as the constant cyphers going on throughout the day. By the end of it all, Bboy O’Shan (QLD |RAW crew) took out the 1v1 Top Rock battles and Bboy Harry (NSW | Juse Crew, Hybrid Formz) taking the W in the 1v1 Breakin’ battles.

The Kickz Stand has been a proud partner and sponsor of the event, helping hook up the winner with fresh gear. Check below for some snaps of what went down and check out Ryugi 〜流儀〜 over on Facebook for more.
