Ba­sic moves

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - R.AGE -

Freezes

A move where you just freeze all body move­ments, usu­ally in some awe­some, grav­ity-de­fy­ing po­si­tion.

Power moves

Big, ath­letic and ac­ro­batic moves that re­quire lots of phys­i­cal power. Crowd-pleasers, but not the be all and end

all of b-boy­ing.

To­procks

Moves per­formed while in a stand­ing po­si­tion. An es­sen­tial el­e­ment in b- boy­ing, es­pe­cially to show­case style and mu­si­cal­ity. Of­ten used at the start of a bat­tle.

Down­rocks

Cov­ers all foot­work, but most com­monly refers to moves per­formed while the b-boy or bgirl’s hands are on the ground. The “6 step” is one of the ba­sic down­rock moves all break­ers should know. You’ll recog­nise it when you see it.

Thread­ing

In­tri­cate moves where the breaker cre­ates “hoops” by join­ing his/her limbs, and threads those hoops with his/ her other limbs.
