1. Intro: What's up, guys? Rich styles here From what? The phone crew And welcome. So that tower of break dance. Now, this is a full, all encompassing beginner's course that will teach you pretty much everything that you need to get started. All right, so let's go through what you're gonna learn in this course. This course is actually designed to cut down your learning curve by may be at least 50%. You know, for me, I've been dancing for 15 years, and I had to learn the hard way. You know, I have to learn by myself. And when that wasn't working, I had toe seek out mentors and teachers. Tell me all the little tricks and tips that they learned in their years of dancing breaking , you know? So I'm gonna give you all the little tips that really helped me get from a beginner to intermediate to advanced as fast as possible. Cool. All right. Now, this course is laid out in four different kinds of modules. All right, Right now you're in module one. That's the introduction and stretches and the workouts. And I also added a little little formula that everybody can use when you're starting so that you can take the moves and you can switch it up so you can actually look like you've been dancing for a long time. It's a little formula that I use that I taught my students so they can take all the stuff that they learned. And they can mix and match so all of their sets looks super dynamic, you know, and they don't look boring. And they look a little bit more interesting to everybody that's watching now. Module to That's where we break down all the moves. As you can see, Module to is broken down into a B, C's and D's. It's It comes with footwork, you know, top rock transitions, transitions into freezes and freezes. And you know those are all the basic components to making a good set. Now, Module three, we're going to be talking about how to add explosiveness and more, you know, excitement factor to your sets by adding blowups and power moves. Right now, right now, it's, uh, power. Moves are the most difficult part to learn in breaking, so I'm gonna give you the foundation off swipes and windmills, and those are the foundations of what you need Teoh learn in order to get all the other more difficult moves. So if you master those moves in the powerful section, then the other moves will just come naturally. And finally, module four. That's where everything gets a little bit more interesting. That's where you can play with the moves that I give you. So that's the difference between this course and the other courses. I'm not just trying to teach you moves and give you choreography, which, which is really, really good to dio. But you know, the best part about breaking and the best part about hip hop and freestyling is you know you can do anything that you want. You can add your own personality in your own style, and that's what this course does. It helps you learn how to cultivate your own style as fast possible. That way you don't have to, like, spend years and years trying to, like, figure everything out like I did great. Now that we got the breakdown of what this course entails, what you really need to know is disclaimer. This is a very physical dance, Okay, you have to be aware of your body. You need to be able to stretch. You need to be able to be strong, which is why added stretches and the workouts into this course. If you're not strong and if you're very inflexible, you could get injured. And I've seen it many times. You know, people are just trying. Teoh, Skip, Skip Teoh all I wanted to learn the most important impressive moves, but they don't have their foundation, and that's how they get injured. All right, so just like everything, you have to know your body. Be aware of it and make sure that you know you're you're cleared to be doing physical activity like this. Okay, don't forget to warm up. Don't get stretch and always do your workouts OK on. The most important thing is, even though we're going to be cutting down the time, it's still about patients. All right, this is the Tower of Breakdowns. This is the way of the break things, and that includes being patient and not taking any move for granted and not rushing more patients you have, the more you'll enjoy the process of dance, and that's what it is. You're supposed to be having fun with this dance So the more that you realize that this man should be fun and it's not a chore and enjoying the process, finding people to dance with and learning from them as well and sharing some of the stuff that you learn here, the more fun it will be and the better you will be at. Okay, styles out. And I can't wait for you guys, particularly the next video. 2. Stretching: do it two years. 3. Practice and Plug and Play: how it's practice. Okay, Now I want you to think of practicing, breaking, like, working out. You could even replace it with a workout routine because it is that physical, and you will get in shape very quickly. Okay, So what I suggest is, if you're first starting and you don't have a lot of time, maybe three times a week, suggestion maybe Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Or, you know, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesdays, and then the rest of the week. You can rest. But if you're hungry, like me. When I was first starting, I danced every single day. Let me, like a couple hours free to dance every single day, especially with my friends, because I had friends that wanted to do it, too, and we were trying to learn together. So if you could find a group of people that want to dance with you, then that's perfect. Actually, that's even better. But always, always, always add some rest in there, right, So the way you want to practice is try to find the practice schedule that's easy for you, and that fits your lifestyle, because remember, it's would be fine. Is that supposed to be a chore All right. Okay. Now the plug and play method, this is the fun stuff. This is the stuff that'll get you dancing as fast as possible. Okay, So why would you think of the plug and play method as three parts three parts for level one ? All right, so we're gonna have top Rock waiting for work, and then we're going to have freezes. Very simple. The 1st 1 is very simple. Top rock footwork, freezers. Okay, so what you're gonna do is you take one of the top rocks from the top rock section, and then you're going to add a transition from the top to bottom section. So you gonna do top rock top to bottom. You take something from the footwork section that you're gonna take something from the transition section, and then one thing from the free section can't got it. So it will be fucking play. You're going to put top rock top to bottom footwork, transition free. Okay, Now I'm going to give you more examples of this, and I'll put it on the pdf so you can actually just look at it on read it. But that is one example that is a very simple example, and that is one that will get you started right away. As long as you learn the moves, you practice them and, you know, you implement them into plug and play system. So check out the pdf, download it and, uh, trying different combinations with it. You know, remember, there's no wrong answer. You can do whatever you want. That's the beauty of it. So keep practicing and have fun. 4. Front Step: the top rock. Now, the first kind of top rock we're gonna learn is the very basic front step. All right, so what's gonna look like? So very easy. Let's start with just the feet. All right. Left right. Loves Okay. Very easy. Beside 12346 Okay, 1234 Basic. Now what we're gonna do is we're gonna try to cross our legs, found the other one. So one that goes in front, in across. So for our purposes, we know that right across in front of the left back home center is always gonna be our home . Okay, Wait, wait, wait, wait. Count is going to go one and two and three and four. Okay. One and 234 Great. Now we're gonna do is we're gonna add a little bit of a lean with upper body. So every time we step forward, you can see my upper body is leaning in the same booth. Let's just try that. Accounts. 561245678 123456 Another tip here is you want to keep your knees a little bit. Been slightly not over. Exaggerated like doing a squat, and you don't want to keep your knees locked and upright position. You just want to have a little bit of a gift. So there's a balance, because the balance is where the group comes from. All right, so let's try to have a little bit of a knee bent situation here, so we're gonna try it again. Bought six. 1234567 So that gives it a little bit more freedom when we're trying to step forward. Especially if we're trying to step way out there. If we're needs a locked and we can't wait, can't really step as far as we want. We won't have that range of motion. You will. Okay. Now with the arms. What are we gonna do? Arms are gonna look like this. Open, Close. Open. Close. Okay, so it's just like a swinging motion. Now, Every time step forward, we're going to open her arms. Every time we step back to home, We're gonna close on. Okay, so let's try this. 12345678 Okay. 12345678 Okay, Now, you can also add a little bit of hop. So instead of stepping on the one you can hop on so you can be like up to pop. Okay, so you're gonna hop back to home every time. Who you full? Try that with accounts. But 67812345678 But you can also do make it a little bit more stylish is every time we step , you can add a little bit of emphasis to that stuff. What I mean by that is, if you go who Oh, see how every time I step on, bring my entire body down a little bit of power, Teoh, That gives it a little bit more dynamic and more style to your tough rock. 5. Indian Step: Indians were going to do a little bit of a twist. So first move, trust over. Bring it back home list. Oh, Twist. Home. 1234567812346 So now we're gonna add a little bit of a hot too. So we're going to. So if we're going to start with our right foot stepping over, we're gonna hop onto our left foot and then twist six Salmeen one to get 6712 Now, from here, we're gonna hop onto our right foot to the other side right now. From here, we're gonna twist, right? Let's try that. 567 Great. Try to get 67 Twist, twist. Right now all you have to do is continue That seeks. So do 5671 to 346726 Now, just like across step for the front step. Every time we do a step, we're going to open up our hands and they're gonna be open. You want toe take up space on the dance floor way Don't want to dance small. Do you wanna dance big? You want to show that this is our circle, right? Won't have a little bit more presence. So open up your hands. But 6123466 6. Spreads: spreads. I want you to think of spreads like you're doing Jumping deck, right. Look jumping Set your take out the arms. Just use your legs. So we're gonna go now. Every time way Spread our legs open. We're gonna push out with the harms. Go one and two and three and four. OK, now, when you do it, you also want to be a little bit bent need right here so that your level is a little bit lower after low, Remember? Right here. A nice balance. The love That way your upper body does not jump. Too much Would you want to do is try toe tryto keep your upper body and stable of 10 like you have a glass of water. You don't want to drop it. So try to keep up a body from moving. Things happened because my knees are bent. So I have a lot of gifts When I'm spreading my legs Now for the turn, we're gonna go one and two from here. Open close, open. Turn Open. Close. Open 616 7. Salsa Step: start to solve a step. All you have to do is know that you're going side to side. All right, remember, starting from home, we're going to be taking a step in the right back home. Left home, right home, Left home. Now, every time you take a step left or the right, your body weight should be on the foot. That's in the center. Right? 123456 Great. 56781234 Instead of going straight back home, do a little bit of cross. Cross it again. Okay, 56 I noticed. Every time I cross my step, I'm actually resetting with the other foot stepping back so I don't keep going forward. You do that. You can keep going forward for our purposes. We're going to stay in one place. All right, Go step cross step cross. Cross cross. Okay. Every time I took a step to the right, Going to take a step back with that home. Cross back. Back across. Now we're gonna add kick. Let's start with. So remember, our weight is going to go for the kick kick booth six, seven and okay, I'm 61234567 And not to make it a little bit more interesting. Every time we step, we're going to leave on the side that were so okay, so I'm gonna go right, but notice And my weight is still on other side. What makes this salt? Because you're dancing with your leaning towards it, and that's what it's a little bit more salt. Sudden adds a little bit more flavor otherwise. 8. Kick Twist: stick to us. All right. Pick twist. A little bit more complicated. A little bit more events, but wouldn't a little bit of drilling and, you know, practice. It becomes second nature to you, right? So we're gonna do is just like when we did the cross step for the front step. We're gonna go over. But instead of going 45 degrees like the cross step, we're gonna go 90 degrees all the way to our side. Who bad Try to bring it as far around this possible. Now with our upper body. The trick here is you want to keep your upper body as forward as possible. Try not to bring it with you. Okay? You want to leave your upper body facing forward wherever your opponent is, wherever your gaze is. Right. So here, here, here, here. Other side, last hole. Last home left home last. Let's do that to the count's 56 71 2345 six, eight. Other side. 12345678 This that when I go step, my body is actually going down. It really helps. Emphasize, stop. Makes it more power. Now let's ab kick that puts let's start with our mess. Flip switch to our right foot and then twist. Yeah, one and two and 5678 one. And to try the other side. So we're gonna do the opposite. Right? Left twist, bring it back up. So, essentially, it's four moves. Go one to list and then bring it back again. One and two beside one and two. And let's try adding what goes together one and two and Switch who? But 6781 and two and three and four without stopping 6781 and 2341234 Yeah, to continue to do that to the music and get a little bit faster and fast. OK, so you could start by doing each step to the beat. So beat goes 23456 812 34666 and then gradually speed it up in one. It's some tips. What I like to do is whenever twist I make, the twist is powerful as possible, So the kick is just tick tick plus kicked, just kicked twixt that give it a little bit more power a little bit more dynamic, and it's gonna make you dance a little bit more interested. We'll practice that 9. Kick Step: the kicks that similar to the salsa step. Except instead of stepping to the side, we're gonna be stepping backwards. All right, so let's try. So without the kick, we're gonna go one and two and three and four inside one and two and three and four. All I'm doing is stepping back, going back to home and stepping back again. So let's try it with the kick. So kick and it's that back, kick and step back. Tick back, kick and step back. All right, Side, kick, back, kick, step, kick. Switch back. Smooth salsa. Step. Every time we step back, we're gonna lean back a little bit, okay? Not leaning completely back. I'm leaning a little bit to the side by side with Booth. Okay. Temple 67123467812346 10. Dpad Concept: okay. The D pad concept. Now, this is a secret technique or concept that I usually teach my private students. And it really helped me figure out how toe create my own steps, my own four patterns. And just by using this little technique, this concept, I was able to, you know, not worry about what kind of move I'm gonna be doing. But, you know, just creating different kinds of footwork patterns on the fly free styling. Right. So this is called the D PAD concept. Now, I want you to think about maybe a dance dance, revolution pad or a deep had on, uh, Xbox controller or your PlayStation guy place they control. Okay. You just have the deep end up down left, and right now I want you picture yourself standing right in the middle of Okay. Now this is home. This is our home. Just like we've been doing that all the other moves home. And then we have our steps, right? So right now, wait. Now, if I wanted to do up, down left, right, I go like this. Up, down, left, right. So we're going to try doing up, down left, right with our left leg down last right now without right. Right. So it doesn't really matter how you step on it. As long as you're stepping on the different arrows, keys, whatever you want a different button, right? Just some examples of this are if you can remember the kinds of moves or top rock that we were doing before we go forward. Forward. All right, so all we're doing is pressing forward. Now, if we go to the side, what stuff is this? Looks similar to the sol system, right? It's also rock now, fast. We're doing the kicks that minus kick. So it's the same thing. Essential. Now, if you want a sweet spot with it you don't have to do is kick step like, for eight counts and their front step for an account. You can mix it up just by using this pattern. Watch if I do. Up, down, down, right, left. It could be down, down, right back home. Okay. So try to create your own different footwork patterns and then just play with huh? Huh? You see, all? I wasn't even worrying about four. Am I gonna do the spread with front step or the kick step with stuff. How we're just worried about pressing different buttons. Then make sure that I go back to home base, which is something all right, so create your own steps, create your own patterns. It doesn't have to be set. This is where you can use your creativity and just mess around. Have fun. 11. The W: Now we've gotten to the transitional part Now, in these moves were going to work on from going top Rock. It's a footwork. Alright, so first thing we're gonna do is w All we're gonna do is go down straight onto our knees like we're praying, right? Except we're going to sit back, sit back and then put one of our hands on the floor So the W being made is violated 12 going to go down or use this. All right, so let's break that down from the top. Whatever you're doing, Top rock, you're gonna leave forward, right? And then you're going to try to go down straight down onto your knees. But I don't want you to Bangor these before. Okay? So the secret here is on the side, leaning back speaking my butt out a little bit, right? You're gonna go down, squatting down, see how I'm going to be sitting on my ankles, and then I'm going toe. I mean, back. Now I'm gonna gently put my foot on the floor, gently put my knees on the floor, and then you're gonna come back. Reverse the movement. Come up. That's 12. Cork: now for the court. Screw. I'm going to do a twist. So for our purposes, we're going to go right over left right from here. We're gonna anchor feet onto the floor, and then we're gonna twist Notice how my feet are not getting off the floor. So now I should be in the reverse. All right, So my left should be in front of my right, And as I go down, I'm gonna lock my left shin onto the back of my right knee. Okay? Right here. You can see in the back. It's cross. Okay again. So we're gonna go cross turn block right from this lots position. I'm gonna go straight down. I'm not gonna go on my knee. I'm gonna go straight down, See my knees, don't even touch the floor. And I'm gonna go on my hands and sit on a hell of my foot again. Very slow, Pringle. 5678 Cross, turn a lot. Go down. Okay. Try to go down gently as possible. We really don't want our needs to be banging on the floor because that would be problems for us, right? So when I'm here on now on the floor. Now I can do any kind of footwork pattern. I want six deputies. That's exceptional, you know? So out. Come up. Cross turn, lock down. 13. Knee Drop: you dropped. Okay, so the knee drop need dropped is very similar to a corkscrew, All right, except we're not gonna be turned this time. You're gonna pick a knee that you're gonna go down on to remember when you go down, we're not gonna bang Arnie on anything before knee's actually gonna barely touch. You just wanted to look like it's going down on the floor. Right. So we're gonna go on a left knee, We're gonna go out with a right foot, lock the right foot onto the back of the left knee, go down, remember, not forward. We're gonna go straight down, and then we're gonna go on her hands and we're gonna sit on our foot. There you go again to go out. Lock down gently as possible. It's ideal that you practice this on a soft surface so that you don't really try toe pitching me on a hard floor 14. Jumpdowns: what we're gonna do is from the top rock. We're gonna jump down into our footwork. All right? So all we're gonna do is literally jump. But really, what makes this move mawr dynamic and more powerful is if you actually took in midair. So talk. Okay, now from the top rock, we're gonna go, Let's say basic front step. Jump on, then go down. All right, Now, how you go down is really up to you. One of my favorite ways to go down is I like to call it the Spider Man. So went down. How would Spider Man land on the floor? All right. He lands very smooth and like, cat like, almost very graceful. So he never really lands flat, flat, palm or anything. It's always usually honest fingertips, right? And he's not really going onto his knees. He's just sitting on his heels, just like we always do. Remember, China as much as possible and not have your knees on the floor. Okay, we're gonna do is we're actually gonna sit, always gonna sit on our heels. Okay, So a few examples we're gonna go forward. Come down on then from here, you can do any kind of footwork, or you just get up or, you know, do freeze from down here. Okay, let's try to do going to China. Go forward with it. All right? Top rock, boom. And then from here, we can go cook, hook, cc, cc, come up right or way to go to a side. So or you can go back. So really, really, it's all up to your imagination. You know, there is no set path. This one can be like up to you. You can do whatever you want with it, all right? 15. Sweeps: sweeps. All right, Sweets, let's break this down. It's almost like you're trying to do a helicopter, but from standing all the way to the floor. OK, so first thing we're gonna do is we're gonna jump. So if we're going to sweep with our right foot, we're gonna jump onto a right foot coming down into our squat position. We're gonna put all of our weight on our left foot, and then we're gonna bring our right foot out forward and then hook it around. Okay, Let's try that again. So we're gonna jump. Go down, bring our right foot out, bring it forward, and then hook. Okay, Let's try to put it into a very fluid movement. Jump down. I'm putting all my weight onto my left side so that right foot could come out. Bring it forward, switch hands, and then you switch the weight to the other side. Bring it to the hook now from the hook. But you can do is you're gonna take your right foot. You can go on the toll of your right foot and then jump over. Okay, Let's try that again. Bring it around to the hook. Not from here. We're going to try to spread our legs spread. Okay, now what you do here it is up to you. Let's try it again. 5678 Jump down. Extend Bringing around hook now from here. Put all of your weight forward. Right. Do you want to do is you want to have all your weight on your hands so you can actually jump over your foot? Okay, again. 5678 Jump down. Bring it around. Weight forward, sweet. 16. 6 Step: Now, even though the sixth step is on the floor, we're gonna learn footwork pattern by standing up. Okay, so six steps standing up, we're gonna start here. This is one. Our legs are gonna be spread shoulder width apart. All right, one from here are left. Foot is gonna go forward and cross, just like when he didn't cross step. That's too. We're gonna bring our right foot behind left. Three. Okay. From here, a left foot is gonna go over four. We're gonna bring the right foot over the left five, and then we're gonna bring the left foot back six. And now we're back at 11 This is one, 234 five, six, one to three, 4561 one to three, four, five, six one to three, four, 561 Let's translate it to the floor. All right. Remember our position. We're always gonna be sitting in this position. This is our home when we're on the floor. Okay. Home base. You gotta be really comfortable in this position because we're gonna be in this position a lot. Bring her hands forward. So this is one. This is our standing up position. to three four. Now we're back in this home position. Which hands? Five is the hook six. And we're back at one. Okay, let's break that down even more. All right, get in that position. One, bring our left foot forward to right foot in three. Okay. My weight is still on my left. We're gonna bring over switch hands. Okay? Bring this over. Tow hook. Six brain left foot back, and then you're gonna go back to 11234 Switch. 561 1234 Switch 561 17. 2 Step: sit in your home position just like when you were gonna do the sweep or the helicopter bringing around when we get to this hook point. OK, we're going to try to hop over and land on our right foot or the foot. You did helicopter. Okay from here. Okay, so now I should be sitting on the heel of my right foot from here. I'm going to switch legs. Okay. On, then. Repeat process bringing around. Jump over. Switch. Okay. And we're gonna repeat from here when it's over. Oh, bring it around. No. Now, when you practiced these moves, don't forget practicing on both sides, left side and right side. You want to be able to cultivate even mentality. All right, So anything you do on your left side, you're gonna do on your right side. Okay? So we gotta have both sides covered. You don't want to have one weakness on another side. 18. 3 Step: just like the sixth step has six steps. Three step has three steps. Okay. All right. So remember, get down into your home position now, for our purpose is just to keep it organized. We're goingto be looking and four distinct directions. First, we're going to going forward, right, left and to the back just to keep everything. First things first. We're gonna do a sweep or help bring all of your weight to left side bringing around. Okay, now, from here, we're going, Teoh, Let's do that over. Okay, So just like when he did the six step, we're gonna start into push up position open right now from here. We're going to go on our right foot. Face this way. On our right heel switch. So a chance. Now from here, we're gonna go back into our push up position. Okay? Now, from here, we're going to try to bring a body facing forward. So one to now we're gonna do a push up position facing back three. Okay to this side. 123 to the back. 12 three. All right. And now we're back. Let's try that again very slowly. So starting from the push up position now Because of the nature of this move, it may seem a little awkward at first, but keep practicing it and keep drilling it that way. It becomes a little bit more comfortable. And you can just busted out any time you want. All right, so now we're gonna do a little variation to it. Instead of just going to a push up position, we're gonna add a little kick out. Okay, so we're gonna replace this Move with this move. Hey, notice how one on one foot was a little bit more advanced and takes a little bit more strength. So I was trying. So from the push up position, we're gonna go. Same thing one. Now, here's where it changes. Boom. Uh, don't. So, uh, it's, uh no. Okay, so now, instead of going into push up position, I'm actually doing a tripod position. Two hands on four. One leg for our purposes. It's my right leg before 19. Criss Cross: crisscross. Very simple movement. Almost like we're doing the spread when we were doing the top rock. All right, except we're gonna have one foot across in front of the other. Bring an alternate. Right? So start by standing up. Crisscross. Doesn't matter which leg goes in front as long as you're crossing over. Okay. Very easy. Now from the floor. Get into a push up position and you try to do the exact same thing. Right? Position. Cross cross. Cross cross. Okay. From the back, cross cross across. First variation we can do is a double doubles, Which would look like this. Okay, Notice how? If my right foot is going in front of my left, I'm gonna do it twice. Right foot, Right foot, left foot. So here, we're gonna go right foot. My foot. Left foot. Right foot. My foot. Okay. So you can play around with different. Another variation is doing the crisscross while traveling. So that would look like this. Okay. Okay. Now, what I'm doing is I'm sticking toe one side only. Let's say I'm trying to go to the right side. All right? I'm gonna turn my body not facing the floor facing the way that I'm actually gonna be travel. OK, so for my purposes, I'm gonna go this way. My left foot is gonna go in front of the whole time. So here, hear, hear. Here. Now, while I'm kicking, I'm going to be moving my body using my hands. All right? Almost like I'm just, you know, crawling around. Okay, so I was trying 123 before bringing back more advanced variation. What you can do instead of traveling, you can go up and down. How that would work is I'm going like this. Okay, inside. Now this one requires a little bit more strength. As you can see, I'm kind of like doing a push up, right? So But you can do is the train that go to the workout section and, you know, just try to get a little stronger and get more endurance 20. Hook: cooks. Now, hooks are a great way to transition between steps to stop your steps, Teoh. You know, goingto power move war into a freeze. Now, what that looks like is like this who? Let's just sit on the floor. Very simple. We're gonna start with the right foot. As always, We're gonna put all of our weight onto our right side. Do hook, sorting a right foot, hooking it around our left shin from here. Going back home, extending left foot. Bring all of our weight to left side and one on the hook for this side. All right, around on this side. Boom. Okay, on the side. Boom. Now we're going to get off the floor completely. We're not gonna sit on the floor. We're just going to jump from hook tow hook. Okay, so we're gonna go here now from here. I'm going to try to switch and land switch and land switch and like, Okay. Now, when you land, I want you to land as gracefully as possible as well. Spider man, like, you know. Okay. All right. Some examples of ways to use the hook. All right. I can do the hook from six. Debt and then reverse the sixth. So six that reverse the sixth. Or I can do a sweep hook and then do reverse week. So it's gonna go here. Boom, blue. Okay, So how that works is I'm gonna be doing helicopter sweep hook here. I'm going to try to reverse that movement. So bring over, bring all of our weight to the other side again, and then wrap it around to the back, Or I can do a hook into a corkscrew. So, hook, boom. Now we're gonna bring my right leg in two. The left need behind left me. I'm gonna go down. Okay. Now, from here, I come straight up. All right, again, slow. Look, I'm gonna bring the right inside the left knee. Bring it down. Remember, I'm not only me, I'm on my toe here, and I'm gonna course 21. Chair: chair. Just like when you're doing the hook. We're going to go from left to right. All right. Except instead of cooking our leg onto our shin like so we're going to bring over like we're sitting on a chair. Okay? Crossing the leg over. Okay, Nothing here. Same thing switch. Bring it over. Okay. And now we're gonna have all overweight on our other pants. So we're on our right foot using our left hand count amounts. What you can do is you can put your hands up here. Hands up here. Whatever you want with free hand, touch your foot. Anything works. Okay, so let's try that one. Switch to switch three, switch four on the floor. Oh, okay. Chair variations. Just like the hook. We can go from chair to report school chair, bring this underneath, and then comes straight up. 22. CC: CC. Just like when we were doing the six step standing up. We're going to a C C standing. OK, so from standing up, all we're doing is we're gonna be twisting our hips and trying to show our hell boom. It helps if you can just smack your heel when you're doing. Now, remember, I'm going to try to keep my upper body facing forward. It's not going to try to twist with the hit just the hit. They're going to try to isolate the hip so that it twists on its own. So we're gonna go, Okay? Right now we're gonna take it to the ground. Sitting down we're gonna do is we're going to shift weight, touch or he'll OK, been there need touch or here on the side touch touch such touch. A simple Is that Okay, Now off the floor from for work. All right, we'll start again with a right foot. All overweight is on our right heel and shift weight to the left side and touch. Now from here, we're gonna switch feet. We're gonna be sitting on our left heel and putting all of our weight on the right side. And we're gonna touch. Notice that when I do touch, I'm actually on my toe. So I'm on my heel. My touch. I'm actually going on my toe, ok? 23. Helicopter: the helicopter is essentially just sweep, But we're gonna keep doing it multiple times. All right? It's kind of like if you ever seen that that toy it's called Skip it. You're just jumping over this leg. So gonna bring around over. Let me get to this part right here to the hook. We're gonna put all of our weight to the front and try to jump over it and end up in this position. Okay? Now, instead of going back into home position, we're gonna keep our legs straight the entire time and try to bring it around in a circle. Here it is. Repeat, All right over school. Okay, A few tips. What you want to do is use the leg That's not sweeping to jump, so you're always gonna be on your toes. Right? So it really helps if you do this. Okay. Second variation of the helicopter weaken. Do a reverse helicopter. Which is, if you can guess, we're just gonna do the exact same thing, but the opposite way. All right. Same leg is our helicopter way. We're gonna go in reverse. Okay? Now it takes a little bit more balance and a little bit more flexibility in a regular helicopter, but a little bit of practice, You could do it. So all I'm doing here is I want to start from the hook position. OK, I'm here. I'm gonna try to reverse this movement going all the way around, Remember? Just the weight. So you have all this clearance bringing around you get here? I'm actually lifting my body. Okay. So I could jump over it here. Okay. So again, bring it around when I get to the back. Jumbo. Notice how When I'm going around putting all of my weight on this right side so that jump over. Okay. Inside hook bringing over beside. Look right over the reverse helicopter. 24. Kickouts: All right. Kick outs from our home position. Wait. We're gonna put our weight onto our left foot. Okay, Pick out from the home position. Gonna put all your weight on your left hand or your right hand, which everyone you want to start with from here, we're gonna do try to straighten out our body and then land on our heels. Who? And they were gonna bring it back. Okay, switch right side. And then in 45 degrees to the other side, he'll bring it in. 12 switch. 34 switch six. Switch 17 variations of kick out. Now, instead of doing 45 degrees, you can do, uh, two legs spread out. So instead of going 45 degrees like this, you can do okay. Now, instead of putting our weight onto a particular side for me right now, with the right side, we're gonna put our hand behind us, so all of our weight is behind us. Okay, All my weight behind me, and I'm gonna kick out and then bring it back in. Okay, We find this open close. Okay? Variation number two. Okay. Now, instead of doing a kick out jumping out, we're gonna be stepping out each leg at a time. Alright. So just like we did before weighed down here. I'm gonna use my right left and my right and my left switch. Left, right, left, right, switch. Right, left, right, left. Switch. Left, right, left, right. Okay, try practice that fast. 25. Zulu Spin: the zoo. Spin. Check it out. All right, Zulu spin now, just like all the footwork stuff. We're gonna be in home position. Okay? Now, first variation we're gonna do is we're gonna have one of our legs out for our purposes and use my right leg. Okay? Just like we're doing all the footwork. One legs forward, and then we're still balancing on our other leg. OK, you're gonna try to go over and turn. So when I'm turning, I'm going to pivot on my toe to toe of the leg that's extended out over and then we're going to go back into the same position. OK, Try that again. Over turned pivot. And then back to the same position. Inside out. Turn same position. Okay, Now, it really helps if you try to keep your body as compact as possible when you are turning. So notice how I'm not all that I have here. When I turned, I'm more closer to my center of gravity. Okay, that zulu spin. Now, the second variation we're gonna do is, instead of putting our leg out, we're just going to turn by switching our feet. So we're gonna start same way Well, this way. Boom from here. Now we're gonna put our other foot down, okay? So, essentially, if we're standing up, steps would look like this room. Pretty much. We're just gonna be returning. All right, So, again, over. Step back over. Step back. Now, let's try to go the other way over. Step over, Over step, and that's the news. 26. Stab Freeze: Now that we're done with all the footwork stuff and you know the get down's, we're gonna start working on our freezes And the most important part of learning how to freeze. Especially when you're gonna do babies. Chairs, you know, needle freezes, whatever. You have to learn the stab concept right now. It's not as crazy as you think. We're not going to be stabbing ourselves. Well, maybe just a little bit. All right? So the stab concept like this, and this goes for all of the freezes. Really? So you take your strongest hand, your most dominant hand. Now, if you don't know which one it is, it's OK. You can just try both of them and which one you feel is more comfortable to you. That's the hand you're gonna use. That's gonna be your stronger, more dominant hand. All right? For me, it's my left hand. Okay? Now, the fine where you're gonna be comfortable with, you're just going to look at your abs and you're going to try to look for the median line, which is the line in the center. Okay, Now, a little bit off to it is where you're going to put your elbow. All right, so I'm right here. My elbow is in the center of my body is going to shift it over to a more comfortable spot, which it should be a couple of inches to decide that you're going for All right for me. I'm going couple inches to my left. Okay? Now, your hand is always going to be like this. You're always gonna have your fingers basing your feet or facing downwards, pointing to your feet. OK, so just try to understand that this is where you're gonna stab elbow is going to be right here on your abs. OK, now, try to get comfortable on the floor, or we're going to do is get into a push up position. Well, you can have your knees on the floor for this one. Okay, Now you're gonna take your hand. Remember, fingers are going to be facing your feet. Bring it down to the center of your body, and you're gonna slowly lower yourself to that spot that you found. It should be on the side, and you gotta dig around in your stomach and try to find which is the most comfortable spot . OK, so on the side from the side here, lower myself. Dig around. This is coming from right? So this is where I'm always going to have my weight on my elbow. Okay, Now, few things. When you are doing this, you will get a bruise on the side. That's normal. But when he heals, your abs are gonna be so much stronger. It's especially side that you're gonna be using. So don't freak out. It's normal. And just know that it's just getting your body stronger. Okay, Go down. Okay, slowly. Figure it out. Sometimes. It's gonna take just a little while to figure out where the right one not to do. Don't have your forearm like this. This is gonna be or like this too much. It should be completely strength. Notice how my forearm is completely 90 degrees right now. When we're here, slowly you can put side of your head on the floor and then slowly raise your knees. Good. Now you can hold this position for like, 30 seconds or a minute. If you're really more advanced. Sell from here. Going down, putting my head on the floor. Now, remember, you're going to try to naturally look in the direction that's opposite of your hand. So I'm looking over to my right side with my head on the floor. Needs off the floor. Just hold it. When you get good at this, you start raising one foot off the other and eventually you have both. So it takes a little bit of time. A little bit of patients figure it out, but practices. And don't forget the stretch out your wrist because it will straighten your rest a little bit. Remember, he's just getting stronger. Embrace that pain, okay? 27. Baby Freeze: All right, baby. Freeze! Okay, baby. Freeze. Essentially the baby freezes you're using. You're crossing your your legs and your going toe. Rest your knee on the opposite elbow. Okay? So if I'm using my left leg, my right arm is gonna be where it's gonna rest. All right? That's where I'm gonna rest my elbow and my needs. Okay? What really helps is a little bit more flexibility. Okay, So don't forget, stretch this leg whichever way you going. All right, So first we're gonna start. Make sure that you have a stab position down packed. Okay, so we're gonna bring it over, just like in the stretching video. We did. And then we're going to try toe, lean all over body weight onto our hands and decide we're head right. Advise you do this on a soft their floor mat. Maybe that way you don't end up banging your head on the floor. Okay, Now, now that we have the knee and elbow locked stabbing arm, it's not going to be in the front more. We're gonna move it to the side so that we can have enough room to, you know, put this neon this over. Okay, so it's gonna end up being on the side instead of in the front. Now, from here, Now that we have both elbows locked in, we're gonna lean forward in China. Doesn't go off the floor like a seesaw. Okay, now, when you do that, you want to try to hold it for maybe 10 seconds and then work your way up to 30 seconds. OK, that's one way to get into it. Second way to get into it is from the turtle position or the stab position. We're here just like we were going for. What you want to do is take this leg and bring it forward. Thistle, little bit more advanced requires a little bit more strength and flexibility to do. But I feel like that is the easiest way or the most practical way to get into the first. So again, what? You can do this, Just start scissoring your legs. Okay, I'm just going like here to here and then eventually, after a while, you get a little bit more flexible. You can bring your knee to your album, all right? And that's the baby Freeze 28. Turtle Freeze 1: way turtle turtle freeze is kind of like beef. As a matter of fact, it's pretty much the exact same thing in terms of upper body. The only difference is how you position your legs while you're big in the stab position. Just like we're doing the baby freeze. We're gonna get into our stabs position, stomach comfortable, your and your side of your head of way on your elbow. Just gonna hold this. And then when you get comfortable in this position, you're gonna take the other life for mine. It's the right leg, and we're just gonna put it on our knees. Go, turtle. Just a simple Is that now? A couple of tips. If you want, you can put your foot on top of a chair or a table so that you can work on your upper body strength. 29. Needle Freeze: All right, So this is just another variation of the stab freeze that we're doing where the upper body is pretty much the same. The lower body, however, is where it differs. The needle freeze is going to be like this. Okay, notice how my upper body is just like when I was being baby freeze and the turtle freeze. The only difference is my legs were in the shape of a pencil or a needle. OK, so my legs were just straight out. Try it again. Get into the stabs position, thanks together and then try to bring it out as far as you can now, because of the weight and the fulcrum of your legs, it's going to be easier if you actually bring most of your weight forward on tier head now , isn't it? Doesn't seem as bad as it sounds. It's not going to hurt your head. It's just you want most of the weight there so that you can bring your legs as far out as possible. That way, you don't tip over onto your legs. Let's try it 30. Chair Freeze: of the chair. Freeze the chair. Freeze! Differ slightly in terms of the stab. When we just stabbed for the turtle baby and the needle freeze, that was a little bit more towards the center of my abs. Right here for the chair freeze. I'm actually going to bring it all the way out to my side, right on top of my hip. Right here. Okay, So what you want to do is you want to try to find a comfortable position, and you kind of wanna Now, this one requires a lot of flexibility in your arms and your shoulders, because I'm going to be rotating my arm outwards. Okay, so it really helps is if you at first what you want to do is not put your head on the floor . You want to just sit into it like this? Okay, this helps stretch the muscle, help stretch your arm and make sure that you don't injure yourself. This also prepares your body for an air chair. 31. Floor Freezes: floor fees is right. Just like the name suggests, we're actually going to just do a bunch of poses while lying down on the floor. Okay, here are some examples. Now, they may just look like normal poses on the floor, but the secret is how you get into the move. One of the ways that I like to get into the movies by doing a sweep. All right? No. When you do it, coz or freeze, you want the move to be an abrupt stop. Okay. You want to be going from something fast and then completely stop it, so it looks like like a picture frame, if you will. 32. What are blowups: what are blow ups Now? I want you to think of blowups as exclamation point at the end of the sentence. If freezes where the period that stops the sentence exclamation point makes the sentence a little bit more dynamic and more energetic. Now, what could be a blow up? Literally Anything can be a blow up. You can make your top rock your footwork your freezes into blowups. But this we're going to be working on the very standard blowups such as rollbacks. Um, like, power moves and, you know, transitions into freezes. Okay, so every time you do one of these blowups, I want you to put all of your energy into it. So this is where all the energy happens and blow up so that you can hit your freezes on point so that you can put a lot of power into your power moves, you know, and you can add a little bit emphasis into your top rock and fork. All right, 33. Elbow Freeze: elbow. Freeze. Now, when you want to do an elbow freeze, its advised that you do it on a soft surface. So now you want to position your hands so you can get the most balance is if you think about it as it like a tripod. You wanna have three points of contact. OK, so if the floor was right here, this is where hands are gonna. So we have one to and three points of contact. We're gonna place our hands in this position. Now you're going to try to leaver your arm this way and this way to try to balance your upper body when you get into the elbows. Okay. So from here, I was gonna come up slowly trying to feel it out first. What I like to do is I like to cross my leg, as you can see. All right? Now, when you get good at that, you can change up the leg position. Okay, Here's one needle. War like position. All right. How to train the elbow stand. All right. So all you need is a wall. What you want to do is you want to try to do that elbows. Fan and try to hold it as long as possible while your feet are up against the wall. Okay, he's trying. Try to hold that stand for about 30 seconds to a minute. And as you progress, you want to use both of your elbows eventually. Okay? And then you can graduate. Teoh One elbow freeze when you have enough strength in the arm. 34. Handstand Freezes: now hand stand, please is required a lot of shoulder strength, especially one handed handstand. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna build strength by doing hand stands up against the wall way. When you get those handstands down, you're going to want to switch arms left and right. So you're going to try to build strength and balance on each arm by itself. Now that you've got those exercises down, Weaken, try Teoh do handstand freezes without the wall. Now we're gonna do one handed Variations you could do is called the 90 or the L kick. All I'm doing with my legs have one leg straight out and the other leg bent behind me. It would look like this. Right? So what you want to do is you want to do kind of like 1/2 car. All right, so when you're doing a cartwheel, you're gonna go like this. We're only going to do half of that, so just gonna go like that? All right, So we're gonna progress higher and higher until we get into that freeze theme. And as you continue to do that, plus the handstand exercise against the wall, you're going to slowly, gradually get better at that freeze on, you're gonna have more control because pan Stan freezes and elbow freezes have to do with power, balance and strength. So these moves take time. But if you practice them, I know that you're going to get it. 35. Airchair: this move is similar to the chair freeze. Except we're not going to use our feet or our head. Help us balance on the floor. Essentially, we're just using our arms on strike to keep us elevated. So the freeze looks like this. Okay, essentially, it's a air chair because my hand position is the same way that chair foods all the way off to the side. Okay, Now, how to train this move? What you want to do is you want to get a chair or a table to assist you in balancing on building strength. So for me, I'm going to use this bench helping balance. All right, So you're going to go into this chair position while keeping your hands on it right now, you want to leave forward and back and try to find the most comfortable position for your art. You want to be that? So for me, the best position is right behind the side of my waist. Okay? Like right up here where my lats are. So essentially I'm going all the way back here. That is my sweet. That's my seat. To get used to that, use the chair with table or a bench to elevate your feet instead of using you get. Now that one takes a little bit more spring and patients. So what I recommend doing, especially when you're first starting is trying to do these exercises while you're watching TV. No more that you get comfortable with it and you stop thinking about where you're gonna put your elbow or how your body position is, the more likely you are to be comfortable in it. What we want to do now is he actually wants to get into the So the easiest way I think to get into the air chair is to use momentum to jump into. So from our knees, what I like to do is just like when you're doing the cartwheel for the handstand with l kick, we're going to try to rock our body and lean into our arm very slowly, and then we're gonna do it higher and higher. It's okay if it takes a little bit of time. Smooth takes a lot of practice to get it really, really messed. You have to get strong. Just know that every day that you practice it more, your body gets used to it. and stronger you're gonna get so my arms are actually pushing the floor away while here. I'm not just keeping my arm here. What I'm doing is I'm trying to push the floor away from notice. 36. Hollowback Upper: the upper case hold back. Very similar to the lower case. The only difference is we're gonna be in a handstand position. So we're not going to use our head anymore. We're going to just be all the way up in the handstand. All right, So the first thing I want you to know is you want to have a lot of shoulder flexibility. So do those exercise that we did in the previous video. Okay, now, every time you practice this, I want you to practice it on a wall first. Okay? Now it really helps with this is for hand position. You don't want to have your hands like this. You want your have your fingers pointed inward. This opens up your shoulders so that you can bring your head on your chest through it. If you If you keep it like this, it's actually going to keep you from bringing your shoulders and your head through. So this opens up your shoulders and you have more flexibility. That's a little check that you could use 37. Hollowback Lower: this move requires a lot of strength in the shoulders, the neck and the back, and a lot of flexibility in those areas as well. So every day you want to be doing in your hand stand exercises and you're trying to do a headstand exercises for strength and your neck Now for the arms shoulders, you want to add more flexibility. So what I like to do is I'll take a towel and I will roll it up. So it's a long lies, and then just clean it back. Try to get a good stretch on my shoulders, try to keep your chest out when you're doing, you don't want to cave in your chest. Now that you've sufficiently warmed up your shoulders and your neck and chest area, we're going to work on our hands stand. So we're going to do lower case hollow backs first. What I suggest is you do this on a soft surface, like a carpet or a mat when you first start. Okay, so you want to start off in a headstand position front? This'll Okay, As you can see, I'm doing a tripod formation with my hands on my head. So my head would be the took the tip and two legs or deed in the hands. Okay. Should be a triangle, just like we were doing the elbow freeze. I want you to think of it like a camera tripod. Now that we've gotten good with headstands, we're gonna walk our hands closer to our head and behind this. Okay, so now we're on the back of our heads. Arch your back practice that moved a lot, especially on a wall. 38. Rollback: roll back. All right. Make sure you guys have a soft surface in order to do this because you're gonna be no pounding your head on the floor. You can see what you want to do is you wanna practice rolling back slowly, Okay. Try to be comfortable when you roll back. Key here is to try to get over to the other side. Now I'm going to go on my hands using my hands to go over notice how I have both of my hands get. All right. Now that kick, this is the really secret kick straight up. This keeps you from falling over when you're doing a roll back. Because if you don't do the kick your just going toe, fall over to the other side and you can't hold your freeze. Now I'm doing just the upper body first upper body going to be using my hands when I rolled that. Okay, now we're going toe, combine other by in the lower body, see that roll over onto my hand and I do a kick straight up, so I'm not actually falling over. I'm actually going straight up the scene now I can hold the freeze because all my momentum is going up and not over. Pop up so you can hit that. And from here, when you hit that frees, you can put your legs in different positions. Is the elbow same concept? So you're gonna go on your head, but have you have already? And then you go on shop using do a handstand. Same exact thing. Except this time I'm going to taking straight up and using the mo mentum to push my body up . So I'm not using all my strength to go up into a handstand. I'm actually using the momentum from the kick, so 50% kick, 50% hand stand push. 39. Sweep Freeze: sweep transition. All right, this is kind of like the knee drop freeze, or we're gonna go around going to the hook. We're going to get rid of that drop and Jessica straight using the opposite leg into the freeze. Any freezing Right now, I'm going to be using example of hands. Really? You could go into a headstand or almost opposite leg, push myself up and stick of freeze. 40. Knee Drop Freeze: - All right, the knee drop free. We're gonna start in our seated position, and we're going to try to do the helicopter. Except this time when you get to the back, we're going to switch to the opposite leg. All right, So you're going to a helicopter, and then you're going to try to land on the opposite leg. Now, from the sixth step. Same thing. Remember, lean forward on your hands and try not to bang your knee on the floor. Now, from here, you can actually go into a handstand or elbow stand or whatever. You. We're gonna go into the hook, jump over to the other foot. I didn't see and do any. Drop leaner. Forward. Go on your hands and use the leg. That's on your new to propel you forward. Use that moment 41. Sweeps Transition: no sweeps. All right, Sweeps. Let's break this down. It's almost like you're trying to do a helicopter, but from standing all the way to the floor. OK, so first thing we're gonna do is we're gonna jump. So if we're going to sweep with our right foot, we're gonna jump onto a right foot, come down into our squat position. We're gonna put all of our weight on our left foot, and then we're gonna bring a right foot out forward and then hook it around. Okay, Let's try that again. So we're gonna jump. Go down, bring our right foot out, bring it forward, and then hook. Okay, Let's try to put it into a very fluid movement. So we're gonna go jump down. Now, I'm putting all my weight onto my left side so that my right foot could come out bringing forward switch hands, and then you're gonna switch the weight to the other side, Bring it to the hook now from the hook. What you can do is you're gonna take your right foot. You can go on the toe of your right foot and then jump over. Okay, Let's try that again. So bring it around to the hook. Now, from here, we're going to try to spread our legs spread. Okay, Now, what you do from here is up to you. Let's try it again. So 5678 Jump down. Extend Bringing around hook now from here. Put all of your weight forward. Right you want to do is you want to have all your weight on your hands so you can actually jump over your foot. Okay. Again. 5678 Jump down. Bringing around weight forward, sweet. 42. Swipes: What you want to do is you want to start by getting into a tabletop position. You can see I'm on all fours. You take one hand for me. This is going to be my right hand, and I'm going to swing over to my right side, leaving my left hand up on the side. You want to lean forward so that your only on your legs when you're switching? I'm actually trying to put all my weight. Okay, you get over your gonna notice that the torque is going to send you over, it's gonna naturally making twist. You want to continue that twist arms and then legs not from the jump. You want to jump using your toes, as you can see here, I'm hopping off of my toes. Exercise you can do here is you can do calf raises and calf jumps from the tabletop position. What's your body? And when you can't go anymore with your upper body, your going to jump using your lower body and it's going to follow your upper body. Ideally, you want to get into a handstand position handstands, twist, handstand, jump with jump, offer both toes and then land in the exact same position starting now to make it cleaner. You want a lift? Your hips up? Almost like, uh, glass of water is on your stomach. Okay. Combine upper body, lower body and hips being up. Now, remember, what makes this move very clean is if you keep your hips stuff. If you're let your hips sag, it's gonna make the move a little bit sloppier. Now the queen of this move, we're going to be facing the four corners for up, down left and right Gonna start facing forward And when we twist we're going to be facing to the side Quist face to the back twist face to the side again. As you can see, we did the four corners, front sides and the back And that's how you make your swipes really clean 43. 1 Legged Swipes: one leg. It's like, just like when you're doing regular swipes, we're gonna start in our table. Top division. No. One difference here is Guess what? We're gonna be doing one leg. Okay? So you're gonna want to do the opposite leg from the opposite side that you're going. So if I'm going to be rotating to the right side, I will also be using my right leg. As you can see, I'm using my left leg to push. That's the opposite leg. Okay. I'm using my right leg toe kick up and left leg to push me and jump off. Now, when you first start, you wanna land on both feet and when you get used to it, when you build up strength in that leg, you're going to want to land on that same leg that you jumped off. You can see I'm doing the exact same mechanics as the first sweat that we did the two legged swipe. Now we're going toe. Add the four corners aside to the back and then to the side again, back to the front. Okay, Now, practice of this move with your hips up, As you can see, when you first start. You can do it very low first, to build up that leg strength. But as you progress and you get stronger, you're going to want to keep your hips up. You can see here and try to aim for the Four corners. 44. Level Changes: level changes. Now these air one of the secrets that I use and many of the pros use Teoh in the make 1000 moves from one move will not 1000. But you know, uh, a lot of moves so that you can, you know, continue Teoh not get stale and continue to improve. And it makes your dance look very different. So level changes the rule. Here is everything that you do standing up you can do on the floor or in the air. Now in the air is a little bit more difficult because you have to be jumping right. But it's doable with some moves because you can see here I am going to be doing Sisi. Hi, Sisi. Normal. Si, si on the floor. Let's check out one more example. As you can see here, I'm going to be using the chair high, medium and low. Very simple. So what I want you guys to do is take a move that we were doing in this course, and I want you to practice doing it high, doing it normal and trying it on the floor. Remember, there's no wrong answer. The more creative you can be better 46. Character: creating your own character. Now, this is the fun stuff because this doesn't have anything to do with me teaching you moves. This is actually going to be you creating your own style, being creative. All right, This one takes a little bit more mental energy because I'm not going to tell you exactly how to do it. But this is what you're going to dio. I want you to think of your favorite superhero. So we're gonna go back back to when we were like kids because right now we're going to be playing. This is how you become creative, this actually creativity exercise. So I want you to go back and think about when you were a kid. What were you role playing like, What was your favorite superhero or heroin? You know, for me, my favorite when I was little was Spiderman. So everything that I do when I'm breaking is very Spider Man based. So if I'm doing a top rock, I'm going to try to figure out what would Spider Man do? Or how would he top rock? How it's Spider Man do his footwork. He would be very, very nimble, right? And very you be quiet whenever he was on the floor like he wouldn't hear a sound. You wouldn't hear him sneaking up on you almost like a ninja. He was also very flexible. Which is why a lot of my moves have to do it. Flexibility. So now I want you to think of three characters. It could be any character. OK, it could be a superhero. Let's say the Hulk, Iron Man. You know, Batman, Superman, whatever. Whatever you want. Don't even have to be like a marvel DC cars there. It could be anything. It could even be an animal. All right. Like a gorilla or a cat. What I all I want you to do is I want you to think of three characters that are not yourself. It could be anything what you think of those three characters and I want you to take one of the characters. And then how would that character do a top? How would that character do the front step? How would he do? He or she? How would they do the Indian step or the kick twist? So you're gonna do the kick test? Normally the way that you learned it and then I want you to be like Just think about little things that that character would do and then add it to the kick twist for the front step. Simple. Then you take the second character. I want you to think about how that character would go into footwork. How would that character do the footwork? What are their fingers doing? What are their arms? Then what is their face doing? Are they moving around a lot, or are they like, very, very still stationary or they loose? Are they tense? So I want you to think about that character. How would like Spider Man do? For How would Superman do for work? How would Batman do for work, You know, because these characters are not really about moves these characters about the mindset. So I want you to get out of your own mind, and I want you to get into the characters. And now you want to take that third character. Take that, their character. And how would that third character do a free
