USBA/WBA HALL OF FAME BANQUET AND TOURNAMENT Part 2

Okay so yesterday I wrote about Grandmaster Trower being inducted into the USBA/WBA’s Breakers Hall Of Fame. Here’s the link if you missed yesterday’s blog. https://masterjonathanfield.com/2013/10/28/usbawba-hall-of-fame-banquet-and-tournament-part-1/

Today I want to tell you a little about why Mikaela lavoy and I went down there. We were both nominated for some awards and were asked to attend the banquet but were not told what we were nominated for. So we went down with Mikaela’s mom Amber and two of my other students, Charlotte Kerr and Patrick Marvin.

Mikaela ended up with membership award certificate for being dedicated to breaking and the USBA/WBA as well as a plaque for most improved breaker.

I ended up with a membership award certificate as well for being apart of the USBA/WBA for as long as I have. I also won a plaque for my Dedication to Martial Arts and Breaking. They also presented me with a World Record Certificate in a really nice frame for setting a new world record back in July 2013 in Orlando Florida.

There was various other awards being given out for most memorial breaks, competitors of the year, and etc,. It was a great night of honouring the best breakers in the world.

Here is a few more pictures from the banquet. Part 3 should be tomorrow with the tournament results. Hoping to have pictures and a video for you.

USBA/WBA HALL OF FAME BANQUET AND TOURNAMENT Part 1

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!!
