B Boying has four discipline and we are educated about the art form. We spend a lot of time learning. I learn from Bboy Gojao aka Nickson Sharma from Nagamapal who started BBoying since 2005and trained under Havakoro Crew United States and who has met up with Gamblerz Crew South Korea, Last For One Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Japanese B Girls B Boy had guided us” says one of the top three finalists. “ I have a lot of dream in bringing up B Boying in Manipur “ says another finalists reading in 9th Standard. “ B Boying keeps us fit and healthy “ remarks the third finalists.

B Boying is spectacular in the sense of quick dance mode choreography. It matters how you move in 40 seconds for a single round with three rounds for each knock out game.

Battle for three B Boyers and Crew Battle in group was also held on the second X Jam NE India Tour 2012.Hands on the floor legs in the air, all but to the tune of fast rhythmic music making every possible move left the audience glued to the ambience stage.I hardly realise that I was sitting on a concrete sit for the last five hours exposed to the energy sequence of the extreme sports extravaganza.
