Taisuke

Japan

Taisuke started dancing in 1997 under his sister's influence. He got into B-Boying in 1998 when his teacher showed him a windmill when he visited his dance club for the first time – this is when he became a B-Boy.

Breaking represents his whole life and made him become who he is today. It is important for him to not get carried way by others and to also stay true loyal to his own style. Taisuke's unique style makes him almighty, so he can do more or less anything, including his signature move: DEF AIR.

He battled in multiple Red Bull BC One events over the past years (2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014) and for the world final in Nagoya this year, he wants to come out from the competition saying he has put his best effort into this, and he doesn't have a strategy for it. He will capitalize on his strong mentality.
