If I told you that b-boy Lil Rock won a battle tournament using moves such as the “head lotus wave” and “Aladdin freeze”, you’d probably think that this dude just became the next Tekken champion or something. Despite the thought invoking flashacks of Eddy Gordo pulling off breakdancing moves to finish opponents in that tourney, Lil Rock actually became the winner of another battle-style competition this past weekend – the Red Bull BC One Las Vegas Cypher.
After besting 15 other prominent West Coast b-boys in Las Vegas, Lil Rock will now advance to compete in the US National Finals in Houston on August 17th and battle his way to the top for the chance to represent America in the Red Bull BC One World Championship even in Seoul, South Korea this November. Hailing from Orange County, CA, Lil Rock (Killafornia Crew) boasts accomplishments including five championship titles from Freestyle Session and a pro-am championship title.
“I’m humbled by the judges have given me,” said Lil Rock. “I went into this competition with hard training and a strong focus on being the best that I can. I am looking forward to being a part of the Red Bull BC One program and continue to introduce the b-boy culture to the world.”
Sounds like anyone in Lil Rock’s path – whether b-boy or cheetah-masked wrestler – is in for a world of trouble come August 17th.
