European and World Championships go to ECTS!

July 2016 saw big wins for Master Serrano and his daughter Sophia!

In June Master Serrano defended his title as the USBA/WBA and ISKA North American Heavyweight Power Breaking Champion. He added to his wins this July with wins in London, UK and Florida! On July 1st, Master Serrano, along with a US contingent (including GM Bergamo, Master Adam Grogin of New York, and Master John Zurisk of Indiana) traveled to the World Power Show in London, UK to run and compete in the 1st USBA/WBA and ISKA European Breaking Championships. There were competitors from the US, Canada, and Ireland in attendance. Master Serrano came home with 4 first place wins out of the 6 he competed in. He earned the title of European Breaking Champion in Power Wood Foot, Power Concrete Hand, Power Concrete Elbow, and Power Concrete Foot. In addition, the breaking competition at the World Power Show was voted "Most Impressive Show" by staff and spectators. An awesome accomplishment for this first time event!

The following week Master and Mrs. Serrano, along with their daughter Sophia, traveled to Orlando, FL to run breaking and compete at the US Open World Martial Arts Championships. This is the largest, most prestigious open martial arts event in the World with competitors from across the globe! The event is aired live on ESPN2.

 

Sophia Serrano took home 2 US Open World Championships in Creative Wood Breaking and Power Wood Elbow. Master Serrano won the ISKA World Breaking Championships in the heavyweight Power Concrete Division. Master Serrano was also featured in a special demonstration named "The Legends of Breaking" which was part of the ESPN2 broadcast.
