The other night I had a dope, random, & unplanned session with my crew members Aqua, Seth, Joel, and a homie thats not in our crew but hes good peeps AllinSoul, what was suppose to be a photoshoot ended up being a session funny how things work out like that. Moving forward I was trying out new things and out of nowhere I hit something pretty dope that I couldn’t believe I was even strong enough to do it was completely accidental I wont spoil it because Im going to try and hit it at the next event if its perfected of course “key word being PERFECTED” I don’t do moves in battles I don’t have locked down, anyways what inspired this blog post is this phrase or two words right here “Accidental Discoveries”. For as long as I can remember I have always been the type to just accidentally hit certain moves that I have failed to learn by practicing them, for example I remember one summer LONG ago I was trying to learn how to flare it was the hardest shit i have ever tried and I seriously slammed my damn heel into the floor thousands of times I gave up probably a month into trying to learn how to do it, never did it again and moved on to something else, then one day out of nowhere i was just messing around and I was watching people doing flares I dont know what exactly happened but I just felt I could do it, I just understood how to by watching it like just made sense, so I go to my little 4×4 linoleum and I remember winding up and letting it rip i did one a complete one omg i was freaking out jumping screaming you name it! i was hyped trained it for weeks and started hitting like 10-15 of them, To me that was an accidental discovery, and alot of other bboys just say “damn I hate you” LOL, this happened to me for 90, for windmill, for airflare(recently) and even halo! so I always tell people you might surprise yourself and just hit it and i know a few people that have done this and gone through similar experiences.
Now when it comes to moves well lets just say alot of the stuff i have come up with has been seriously accidental, alot of the signature moves i do just happen im about to fall over and catch in a weird but cool way or i over rotate in something and hit some weird freeze lol for example check out the freeze below i seriously was going to do like a one handed back hand spring and idk i freaked out thinking i was going to eat it and BOOM i hit this and it felt crazy and i just kept trying it over and over finally i was able to stick it and it came out looking like this (BELOW)
So sometimes you have to keep in mind that you will just accidentally discover random shit and just go with it and build on it idk this blog post was random and short but guess i just had to share a little of my history with bboying and at the same time just share how accidental discoveries are actually the best and most common way of making up your own personal signature moves blow ups, tricks, footwork, whatever it may be, ight yall thats all short and sweet and shout out to my crew we doing the damn thang keep on the look out yeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
