Via World Bboy Battle about their scoring system is incredible as you see it here:
“World Bboy Battle’s scoring system adds suspense, drama and strategy during the competitions. Each athlete is scored on a hundred point scoring system based on degree of dance, execution, form, difficulty, speed, flexibility, strength, creativity, balance, and stamina.
Scores are revealed after each round and add strategy to the competition as athletes can plan and execute specific routines to maintain their positions or move up during the battles, depending on where they stand in the leaderboards. This adds suspense and drama during the battles.
Make no mistake – the World Bboy Battle competitions are designed to test the skills of professional athletes and produce a true Bboy champion rounded in every area of extreme breaking.”
—Frank Hernandez (Founder, World Bboy Battle)
