Good Morning Everyone
Sorry for the late blog post today. Just got back from Norwich Connecticut last night at 1pm.
Anyway the USBA/WBA held their 1st Annual Breakers Hall of Fame Awards Banquet and Tournament this past Saturday Oct 26th and Sunday Oct 27th in Norwich Connecticut at the Holiday Inn. Mikaela Lavoy and I were both nominated for awards at the banquet but we’ll talk about that later. We also brought down Charlotte Kerr and Patrick Marvin for the tournament and Mikaela’s mom Amber Gray drove us both ways and was good company.
But this blog is not about that. I wanted to talk about the Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony/Banquet. It honoured many breakers in various aspects like Most Improved Breaker, Dedication to Martial Arts and Breaking, Competitors of the Year Awards, Visionary Award, and a few others. There was also one inductee into the Hall of Fame.
This man was Grandmaster Elton Trower. He is a phenomenal breaker who has inspired many breakers, has taught us about the science of breaking, and is one heck of a competitor. But more important than all that he is a great person and martial artist. I could not thing of anyone more desiring to be the first inductee into the Breakers Hall of Fame than Grandmaster Elton Trower. Congrats!!
