There is a move called the headstand and you guessed it right you do have to stand on your head. Ummm… I was just kidding you’re totally wrong, how can you or anyone stand on your head. It’s just not possible but you can balance on it. You most definitely can here’s how you can do it. Click here to learn it!
- Chair Freeze
The fourth most important basic freeze is the chair freeze. Just because it’s called the chair freeze doesn’t mean that anyone can sit on you. When you perform this move make sure your wrists are well stretched. So if you’re waiting in a long queue or waiting for the bus you can just pop a chair freeze like this one, and relax comfortably. LOL!
The fifth basic freeze in Bboying is called the Handstand. The name of the move must have frightened you, but chill out it is very easy to execute and practice. All what you have to is find a wall may be at home or a parking lot. Once you have found your wall, the next step is to place your hands palms faced down firmly on the ground. Now comes the fun part, you have throw your legs in the air and rest it on the wall as a support, but remember your legs have to be kept straight you cannot bend them. So basically your entire body will be in a vertical position and it will look something like this or perhaps like this.
(Note: Make sure you don’t do this in public or people might think you’ve run away from the circus and you’re putting on a show for them.)
