Pluto vs Nord Diamond | 1/2 Final | Flow Mo 14th Anniversary
Flow Mo 14th Anniversary 1/2 Final: Pluto (Ruffneck Attack) vs Nord Diamon (Top9) Footages by Bboyworld China Winner: Pluto (Ruffneck Attack) DJ: - DJ Plash (Poland) Judges: - AT (Flow Mo) - Taya (Flow Mo) - Hatsolo (Flow Mo) "NO HOLDIN' BACK" No Holdin' Back - or as we say the NHB is a new bboy/bgirl battle consept developed by Wartecs of Flow Mo. "NHB™" is a 1VS1 competition where all the dancers are put on the same line from the first round to the finals where they have to give 100% in each solo they execute. No one can save energy and moves for later and take it easy at any moment of the competition. From cypher qualifications the 16 best dancers will go through to the battles. For bboys/bgirls who wanna test their limits, this is a new kind of consept that will make you do your very best in each and every round. For all the battles there will be: - No round limit - No time limit The battles will be judged by 3 judges whom each hold a white flag that they will raise clearly in the air as soon as they individually know who the winner is of each battle. This can be straight after the first round, during some round or even after 10 rounds or more. When all 3 judges know who they will vote for - the battle is over even if it’s in the middle of someones solo. After the battle the host will count the ”1,2,3!” and judges will point to the winner with their flags. With this concept there will be no tie-breaker rounds ever since all the judges already know which dancer they wanna vote as the winner of each battle. Battles will proceed with the same format until the winner is announced. © "NHB™" (No Holdin Back) battle concept all rights reserved by Saiffa / Flow Mo Dance School.
