SKB have always had a tight relationship with Street Uni and we too have embraced them brothers. If I were to detail exactly SKB contributes to our organization this blog will quickly turn into an essay. But, I will mention that Lowe Napalan runs a FREE Bboy workshop every Friday at The Street University Mt Druitt and Frace Mercardo (FLUKEMEDIA) has worked on various video projects for The Ted Noffs Foundation and we appreciate their involvement Hard Core!
As it is the third time SKB will be heading to the World championships they know that the competition will be tough but are training hard to make sure they do us us proud. The Street Uni team would like to once again congratulate the crew on all of their achievements and wish them all the best.
