USBA/WBA Black Belt Challenge- Are you ready?
The USBA/WBA Black Belt Challenge is the ultimate challenge for Adult Black Belt Breaking Competitors! Competitors have to be ready for anything because divisions are chosen at random the morning of the event. Winners will be seeded for the following year’s USBA/WBA Pro Series, the pinnacle of competitive breaking!
Expect the Unexpected
So how will it work? Competitors are challenged with a combination of standard and non-standard divisions. All divisions involved are power based; think one strike, either horizontal or vertical, 1” boards or standard patio blocks. They may be divisions that you have seen before or they may be something totally new, or a combination of both. The twist, the competitors registered for the Black Belt Challenge will not know what the divisions are until the morning of the event! So you have to be prepared for anything. And there is the challenge! These “Challenge Breaks” will include breaks and techniques that directors and officials feel are within the capability of any Black Belt, regardless of style.
