So we took the second place at the Sochi Open last weekend, after batlling against Top 9 (Russia) and Foundnation (Japan), we lost to Jinjo (South-Korea) in the finals. Still happy with how we did, go check out the battles below! And Jinjo see you for a revenge match soon.
Last weekend The Ruggeds won Old School Night the largest crew battle in Japan, taking place for the 21st time in Osaka. They ended up battling against some of the best crews Japan has to offer, which are some of the illest in the world at the moment. Crews like K.A.K.B. , Found Nation & Body Carnival Zoo.
Old School Night is a true Grand Slam title in Breaking, and one of the longest running crew competitions in the world.
After our premiere on February 8th and 20 shows we successfully finished the tour in April 5th in Delft.
Our second theater piece, one of a different caliber then our previous work, from a dance show to a theater piece. With our home on stage you could have a peek in to our world, how we function and what makes us who we are, The Ruggeds.
We’re very thankful for everyone that came to visit one of our shows and we can’t wait to be back in theaters with Between Us starting this October.
