Here's one of my rounds from my exhibition battle with @kieranlaiofficial at @dexteritydanceleague Tokyo last Saturday.
So much has happened over the last few weeks I've hardly had time to catch up. Some of you may know that over the last year I was training to compete at this event in two categories and an exhibition; an ambitious goal for me. One of the big reasons I wasn't posting videos was to keep material for the battle since I was definitely going to need it. Going into these battles, I wasn't sure if I had enough, but I guess it all worked out in the end since I ended up winning both the full body angles and all styles divisions and became the first person in the events history to win two divisions at the same years event. It really is a dream come true.
I have so much more to say about my experience in Japan, but I'll have to save those words for another time.
For now, I want to thank @chasingctut for organizing my favorite event of the year and providing me the opportunity to exhibit at DDL Tokyo 2019, Kieran for a memorable exhibition battle that ended up being foreshadowing for the full body angles division finals, @ace_the_dancer for the assist :), to @das.elliott for filming and for the video commentary, my mom for helping send me to Japan, and of course to all the viewers for your patience and support. It really does mean a lot to me.
More to come.
