Stage 0:
Get in General Shape
Pushups, Planks, Cardio, etc.

Stage 1:
Backspins, handstands, turtle freeze, baby freeze, headstand,

Stage 2: Windmills, Halos, Headspin, Beginner 90/ 2000’s, Beginner Flares, one arm balance moves, hops, airchair like freezes, air baby, floats, ufos, etc.

Stage 3: Airflares, 1.5’s, elbow tracks, Flares, Chairflares, Mill Variations, 90’s/ 2000’s flight level, higher floats/ faster etc.

Stage 4 +: Airflare Variations, one handed airflares, one arm elbow tracks, 2.0’s, new creative hard moves, just mess with everything, hand placement

You might consider any of these in different categories, this is just a general organization based on my opinion.

How to use: Take moves from early stages and use the specific strength and motion to build up to later stage moves

Example: Airflare = Backspin (basic spinning) + Handstands (upper body strength) + Halos (airflare swoop motion but on ground) + Flares (additional motion and strength) + one arm pikes (one arm hop feeling)

    level 4: elbow airflares, Flag spin, V flares, chair flares, one handed airflares, one handed baby mills, walking invert, reverse chair spin.

  2. Dude you are awesome!! The way you have put all these forward makes things amazingly easy to understand and especially to relate to for non professionals . Thanks a lot for your efforts. Loving your videos! (y)

  3. awesome man; i watched your No Excuses- What I learned in College Video; very inspiring. I share that same background; accounting in school plus balancing with work/internships/etc & still trying to work on my moves. Glad to know I'm not the only one practicing in the living room, moving all the furniture out the way & feeling silly about it. Great videos man 😀

  4. hey dude just asking. if i can still learn even 2 power moves in my age of 22. and I'm also a enlisted personnel of phil. navy. i've been watching all of your tutorials and practising it but still i cant do even 1 of your move. =(

  5. I actually started with using helicopters first. They're even good for getting in general good shape because they pretty much work everything. Spending a fair amount time going from toprocking into helicopters and actually doing breakdancing with nothing but helicopters and reverse-helicopters in your arsenal actually helped me grow quickly. Everything else was just adding more moves to my arsenal because even after you learn a move, you still have to practice transitioning to that move either from toprocking or from another power move. So the break down is: learn toprocking, practice helicopters until you can do them 10 times in a row, then practice reverse-helicopters while practicing toprocking separately. Then, once helicopters become effortless, practice transitioning to them. Then, learn reverse-helicopters while practicing transitioning from toprocking to helicopters and once you can do reverse-helicopters 10-times in a row, practice transitioning from toprock to helicopters and top rock to reverse helicopters. Then practice transitioning from toprock to helicopters and from helicopters to reverse helicopters back to toprocking again. This prepares you for learning flares, as the motions you practiced learning helicopters and reverse helicopters strengthened the muscles needed for them. That's how my community college's breakdancing club taught me. lol

  6. Could you do this vid for flips and tumbling too, like what order you learn them in, for ex. (cartwheels, sideflips, frontflips etc.)

  7. not against you but i can not do a handstand but i can do a cricket dance moves and i am only 12 years old is it good

  8. It's pretty basic. Start off with ground power then advance to air power. Windmills are a must, almost every major powermove uses the windmill motion. Including airflares.

  9. Another comment asked for a similar video for flipping/gymnastics. Since it doesn't seem like we're getting one (or if we have, I can't find it) the order I think you should learn it is:
    0) (it's not really a stage, if you can't get here you shouldn't really be thinking about flips) in general shape, forward roll, backward roll
    1) handstand, cartwheel, roundoff (need arm strength)
    2) roundoff -> back somi, front somi, side flip (run up into rotation)
    3) back somi (standing)
    4) add twists to flips
