“I don’t re­ally know about the Malaysian bboy scene, but in Korea, we try many dif­fer­ent styles to cre­ate our own Korean style. We try to mix in tra­di­tional Korean el­e­ments like Tae Kwan Do. So for Malaysians, they should try to mix their own cul­tures in their art as well.” — Hong 10, two-time Red Bull BC One world cham­pion.

“Some­times there’s a bit of doubt. You see the tal­ent that’s here (at BC One), and it’s amaz­ing. I’ve been here five times now, and ev­ery time it’s like damn, I get in­tim­i­dated. But I tell my­self just do what you do best. Stick to your guns, don’t force any­thing that’s not you, and do your best.”

— RoxRite, holder of 82 solo b-boy ti­tles.

“B-boy­ing com­pletely changed my life. It’s some­thing I con­tin­u­ously stay pas­sion­ate about. Now that I’m older, it’s not so much about me and the com­pe­ti­tion, but about pay­ing it for­ward and just con­tin­u­ing this move­ment, this hiphop cul­ture.” — Ron­nie, 2007 Red Bull BC One world cham­pion.
