CLAWS OUT IV RECAP

29 11 2009

Sorry everyone, this review is long overdue but I’ve been out of town for Redbull BcOne New York and am now in Seattle for Thanksgiving. I will be writing another blog for NY very soon!  November has been so jam packed. Back to the main event, Claws Out IV was stronger that it has ever been. There was a never ending line outside the venue,  a record of 60+ crews signed up for the battles (unfortunately not enough time to see them all go at it), Wing vs Ben was epic, and the 3v3 bboy competition was intense. The Squadron (Roxrite, Kid David, Keebs) took 1st place over Boogie Brats (Kmel, Casper, Smurf) in an amazing final battle, taking home the $3000 cash, 3 championship Belts, and Shiekh gear for the second year in a row!  I will let the battle footage and pictures speak for themselves! Big ups to our sponsors: ASLMU, Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, Crislu Jewelry, Shiekh shoesArmory Survival Gear, World of Dance, and Redbull Energy Drink for supporting our event.
