FC: Breakdancing Life
1: "Blood, Sweat, and Tears"
2: "Friends are born, not made." ~Henry B. Adams | The Start | Watching the movie "You Got Served" was the start of everything. It was my first time encountering breakdance and something just clicked in my mind. Since I did gymnastics for 7 years when I was younger, I thought this dance was perfect for me. I started looking up breakdancers on YouTube and learned from what I saw on the Internet. Everyday I would watch something and try the move. Breakdancing was just a small part of my life back then
3: Shattered my ankle during my first year but that never sopped me
4: "Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend. " ~Plautus | The Debut | After practicing for about a year and a half to two years, I decided to start entering Breakdance events, or so-called Breakdance battles. The experience was extraordinary for me. It was the start of my new life.
5: Although I was usually the youngest one at many battles, it did not stop me from competing
6: Battle Shots
8: The Crew | Currently I am in a dance team named Giant Robots. It consists of 9 close friends with efficient skill and effort. We compete in events as team but also hang out as just friends.
10: Present | Currently I dance in a circle called "Waseda University Breakerz" in Waseda University. Although it is not a team, we practice with each other to improve our skills.
