This was a school show I did in 1997 in Glendale, CA, with Soul Control, B-Boy Ivan, and Chuco. Before I was doing full-blown Air Flares in my walks combos, I was doing Criticals, like this.
The name "Critical" comes from a legendary West Coast crew called LA Breakers. They were big enough in the '80s that they had various chapters, and one chapter was known as Critical Mass Rockers. One member, named Fresh, thought of doing Turtles, and somehow flipping over in the air, and catching into Turtles again.
Fresh is an friend and mentor of mine, and LA Breakers are still going strong today. And Criticals, of course, are done by b-boys around the world, who might not know where the name comes from.
