Red Bull BC one returns to Japan for the second time since 2010 with the cream of the planet’s best breakdancers vying for the title on December 3. Sixteen B-Boys from 13 countries will face off in front of a passionate crowd to determine who lifts solo breakdancing’s most prestigious trophy. All but one of the 16 earned the right to enter into the all-out battle based on past performances, with the final spot being filled by the Last Chance Cypher.
With no crew event staged at BC One, we will get to see the B-Boys showcase their most intricate and flamboyant skills in the classic one-on-one format.
American Victor is the reigning champion and will be out to become the first back-to-back BC One champion, after edging out Portugal’s Bruce Almighty in Rome. Former champions Hong10 of Korea (2013 & 2006) and Brazil’s Neguin (2010) both stand in his way, though.
Local B-Boys Taisuke and Issei carry the Japanese hopes into competition with Taisuke hoping to go one better than his second place in the 2014 Paris event. The world final will also welcome Finnish breaker Focus for the very first time, who has been dancing for over 20 years and won over 50 breakdance battles.
