Background:

Started in the late 70s, B-Boying is alive and kicking:
Today a vibrant and well-connected B-Boy scene exists worldwide!
One of the most important B-Boy competitions is the Red Bull BC One, where 16 of the world's best B-Boys meet to compete and to determine in a 1-on-1 knock-out-battle who is "The One."
Extraordinary artistic skills, an outstanding character, and a good reputation in the community are the success formula to get selected as a dancer for the Red Bull BC One. The challenge lies in finding influential dancers from all continents ready to set new standards and show state of the art breaking.

B-Boy battles have their roots in 1-on-1 competitions. During the past 15 years these 1-on-1 battles have been pushed to the background as crew competitions became more popular at the big events. Red Bull's objective was to go back to the roots and show B-Boying in the most spectacular and powerful way.

After an auspicious start in Biel, Switzerland (2004), the battle moved to Berlin, Germany (2005) and Sao Paulo, Brazil (2006). The 2007 Red Bull BC One Battle took place in Johannesburg, South Africa, and in 2008, the best B-Boys of the world battled it out in the heart of Paris, France. In 2009, the Red Bull BC One took B-Boying back to its birthplace New York City!

This year, the Red Bull BC One will be held in one of the most vibrant metropolises of all-Tokyo! Japan has a big and lively Hip Hop scene and the event is awaited with great expectations since Japanese B-Boy Taisuke is one of the favorites for this year.
