About Undisputed World BBoy Series & Undisputed Masters
All elements of Hip Hop are built on competitiveness and none more so than Breaking aka B-Boying. Over the years Breaking has grown into an international scene and was nominated by the Paris 2024 organisation to be featured at the 2024 Olympics.
The art of Breaking is practiced across every corner of the globe and attracts people who come to witness competition on an epic scale. A number of iconic events were able to answer the demand, accommodating thousands of spectators and creating their own champions.
The Undisputed World B-Boy Series is a combined effort of different events, which for many years all have produced their own accredited world champion.

Since 2014 the champions meet in a masters event called “Undisputed Masters”. After editions in London, Marseille, Prague, San Diego and Marrakech the Undisputed Masters VI will take place in Malmo, Sweden on the 15th of December, 2019.
The Undisputed Ranking is a ranking accumulating the top 16 results of each championship in the World B-Boy Series. The overall ranking leader if not a champion, is also invited to the Undisputed Masters. The ranking is also used to reward wildcards for competitors to compete in the Undisputed Masters.
In 2007 Johnjay Chon and Charlie Shin creators of R16 in Seoul, Korea took the initiative to organise annual conferences inviting the stakeholders of the international Breaking community. At these conferences top competitors, competition judges and promoters of the Breaking community would discuss topics such as the future of competition Breaking and the improvement of judging.
The initiative was followed by Red Bull BC One. In 2012 at the Red Bull BC One World Final in Rio de Janeiro the concept to unify the major world Breaking championships through an events series was created. In 2013 after a two day conference in the city of Berlin a group of promoters, high level competitors and competition judges created the Undisputed World B-Boy Series and the Undisputed Masters.
The first Undisputed World B-Boy Series kicked off in March 2014 at the Chelles Battle Pro championship in France. The first series included events were R16 Korea, Battle of the Year, Red Bull BC One, The Notorious IBE, UK BBoy Championships, Freestyle Session and Outbreak Europe.
