    I envy so much those that can move like that. I’m built way too heavy and my nervous system is too out of whack to move with such ease.

      Give it a shot anyway, I know some heavy set bboys that can headspin, windmill, pop and lock etc.

        Thank you for your encouragement, but I tried. I’m sure I could do better, even with my frame. But, the only thing my nervous system allows in a “speedy” fashion, is martial arts to some degree. My equilibrium is just too damn slow. Although it also means that my nervous system does not report pain normally, allowing me great tolerance of injuries, to the surprise of my opponents.

        Nobody is perfect, so I’ll just admire from the sidelines.

      I used to pop…and still do on occasion and I am pretty heavy set ( and old now ). Saw Rock Steady early 80s and started then. Got the top rock and footwork down but could never master a decent mill. Room to practice was a problem so popping seemed the way to go. Trouble is now, if I get pulled up for a dance at a party, I can’t readily do the schtick others do. Popping becomes just how you move. Check out BBoy Butter on Youtube. He is unskinny. Also YAKFilms for just great footage of many dancers. I watch battles like some people watch sports.
      To me B -boying is the perfect dance.

        I’ll look for your suggestions, thanks.
