Always on a role, and hungry for more. Stepper is getting ready for the Red Bull BC One Last Chance Qualifier on the First of December in Nagoya, Japan. He's been around on the international circuit for a while now, entering in events like R16 Korea, IBE & Battle Of The Year. In his 3rd year of entering the BC One Holland Cypher, he finally managed to take home the win, after a fierce final against Shane (Hustle Kidz), and earn his spot in Japan. Between his rehearsals for Adrenaline, we got a moment to catch up with him about his upcoming adventure in Japan.
- Stepper, how do you feel about your upcoming trip to Japan?
"I feel good about the upcoming BC One. Since I won the Redbull Holland Cypher I've been training hard, and I feel very confident."
- How long did you prepare for this year Last Chance Qualifier?
"I Just kept on training like I always did. Last month I also started working a lot on my stamina level, since that is the main issue for most bboys."
- Did you do any specific training regarding your dance?
"Instead of focusing about working on making complete sets and moves, I trained by doing full rounds, and to always continue even if I would mess up. I always try to do a solid rounds."
- What do you think about your opponents in Japan this year?
"Some of them are really good! People like Willy (France), Zooty Zoot (South-Korea) & Yann (Russia). I personally really like their styles, but I think my power is in never ending energy, and the fact that I can still deliver good solid rounds in the Semis and the Final. Something not all my opponents are good at."
- So do you think you have a good chance?
"Yes, If I can make it through the first rounds, I think I've got a good shot!"
- And what's next for you after BC-One Japan?
"We're in the middle of our rehearsals for our new Theater Piece "Adrenaline". So I get to focus on Japan this week, and then I jump straight back into rehearsals!
- Any last words Stepper?
"Japan be ready!!"
