The G-Force Dance Legacy is not the only of the Memphis Urban Dance or M.U.D. which is is constantly changing the world of dance from the times of M.C. Hammer impersonating a GangstaWalk into the age where the term was flooded by California's C-Walk which was introduced as the street gang symbol of the Los Angeles Crips making it instantly a world phenomenon. But now Memphis Jookin has caught the eye of the world . Today, G-Force & UDIG Dance Academy, led by Tarrik Moore has taken Jookin to new heights. There is a new nation of dancers that are revolving around the style created by UDIG and the Innovation League. Their ability to network with other countries have them at the pinnacle of potential dominance of the dance entertainment industry. Just as Micheal Jordan changed Basketball and the NBA, Micheal Jackson revolutionized music with dance, Memphis Jookin is the evolution of what Michael Jackson started and the Memphis Jookers just so happen to Jam in Jordans often.

In 2008, the UnitedJookers.Net team were being created by The Germans, Irish and Russians in honor of Memphis Jookin and GangstaWalking as their former style was the C-Walk which was said by them to be less creative. The founders Arsen Hokera and Domenico "Baggio" Lauricella and their friend "Sidewalka"actually learned some Jookin and began to learn with heir knowledge of the C-Walk.

Just as Daniel of G-Force took Memphis Dance to new level, his friends Marico Flake aka Dr. Rico, Terrance Smith aka G-Nerd, Ladia Yates and Charles Riley aka Lil Buck has succeeded his legacy by leaps and bounds. The team has Accumulated millions of views with a global fanbase, leading the style into featuring in a European dance magazine using Youtube.
