A variety of skills are displayed in a fun to watch free flowing manner. Using the spinning discs on the floor allows him to do some great moves.

The move at 2:43 (I don’t know what to call it) has to be one of the coolest looking moves I’ve ever seen. Thanks to Nick for sending this one to me.

Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,
Logan Christopher

    Simply magnificent!

    I’d call the move at 2:43 an airflare.

    The move at 2.43 is an Air-Flare. Most of the top b-boys can do these. They link many together and link them to and from other power-moves, for example, flare to air-flare to 1990 to windmill etc. B-Boy “The End” from Korea is particularly good. See

    Our hand balancer here has been identified as Artur Avakyan from Russia over at the gymnastics coaching site.

    Thanks for posting this Logan. Avakyan; I’ll remember that name. Such an amazing performance, I haven’t been this inspired since I saw the English Gents from La Clique perform in London last year!
