Artist Statement:
Here I have captured a moment in time of complete innocence, where there were not yet any competitions in the original city of Toronto, but only cyphers at underground hip hop parties (Jams). This video captures the mentality I had, when we were innocent, before my name spread across the world, before having to win over judges, before caring what other people think, before knowing that I could or one day would live from the bboy culture. We were only breakin to please ourselves, to express ourselves... To prepare and test ourselves when the real battles came, unexpectedly, but always in search of. This footage was just recently digitized off an old VHS tape of old training footage, I have decided to keep it as close to its raw, bad quality and editing feel, the same way we used to be able to watch footage back in the day. In Toronto, there was a mentality of ORIGINALITY comes first. At this time, everything I did was to build my own style, my own flow, and my own moves. I was in my own world... sometimes I wish I could go back in time, back into my own world.


This is the first of my works, a pre-trailer to my bboy career as I finish getting the rest of my footage on the digital format. The next video will be about all the moves and styles that was invented by me and my crew which many people are using the legwork and thread steps today, unaware of the names or origins of them. Stay tuned for "Points Corrected"
