For the next 4 weeks, we are excited to feature the USA Olympic Breaking Team Captain, B-Boy Kareem. His style is yet to be matched and his mindset is a force to be reckoned with. He has won some of the biggest competitions around the world including 4-time Freestyle Session winner, 2-time U.K. Bboy championship champion, 5-time Warsaw Challenge champion, Out For Fame national champion, B-Boy Summit champion, and Battle of The Year champion. Kareem was voted Mental Health Advocate of the Year in 2021 at Break Free Worldwide and he is consistently able to make himself stand out in a sport that aims to defy physics.
Cannabis can boost the brain’s dopamine levels, leading to a euphoric high that can inspire you, making it more enjoyable and more comfortable to get absorbed into a workout. Not to mention, cannabis can also temporarily reduce physical or mental pain, causing you to feel better. And feeling better can cause sensations of increased motivation or focus.
Kareem has been dancing for 22 years, 4 of those spent performing with the Cirque Du Soleil. “I’m from Sacramento, California..there aren't a lot of opportunities for dancers there, So I worked really hard to get good enough to move out of the city to reach more opportunities.” Now, @bboykareem has battled in and won some of the most prestigious competitions in the world, performing in over 65 countries.
