FRIDAY NIGHT- USBA/WBA PRO-SERIES SEMI-FINALS
We are excited to bring back the USBA/WBA Pro-Series! Over the last year Black Belts from all over North America have competed in the USBA/WBA Black Belt Challenge to earn a spot in the USBA/WBA Pro-Series. They had to be prepared for anything because divisions were randomly selected the morning of each Black Belt Challenge. This made for exciting and unpredictable events.
We now have 4 Lightweight and 4 Heavyweight Men ready to do battle for the ultimate prize- the USBA/WBA Pro-Series Belt! The Pro-Series will start with a semi-final run off at this event. 2 Lightweight Battles and 2 Heavyweight Battles to find our final 2 in each weight class. Those final 2 in each weight class will face each other in the final battle, on stage, at this year’s USBA Northeastern Regional Breaking Championships at the North East Open in Albany, NY.
The Pro-Series will be featured as a stand alone event, the night before the actual North American Breaking Championships. Not only will we have the Pro-Series run off, but there will be demonstrations and other surprises to make this an exciting show! Don’t miss the opportunity to see the Pro-Series action live!
