Outstanding documentary/shows for anyone who enjoys break dancing [original West Coast name: Dancing Punk]! The show put on by the former crew, Ichigeki was seriously awesome, as was the performance by South Korea's Last for One!

Fantastic documentary about several b-boy crews from around the world preparing for the world championships. Loved the differences between styles and cultural acceptance. Nice pacing and only wish there were a lot more extras on this DVD!
