“What Kindness Not Weakness means in its entirety, means everything to me. By being a practicing buddhist and immersed in Buddhism since I was born, the compatibilities are endless. The goal that I practice with b-boy culture and pass on to my students is the same goal KNW represents. It’s simple: treat everyone with respect and kindness no matter what race, religion, sexuality, etc… WE are all human, and when our human race understands this truth we free ourselves from suffering and sooth the suffering of others.”
Alex Hanesakda/b=boy Aeflex has been heavily involved in using b-boy culture as a tool too reach, inspire, and motivate youth all over the state of WI. I started breaking in 1993. Was introduced to it and came up in the South Side of Milwaukee scene when breaking was making a big comeback. Went to many jams in Madison in it’s early years around 94-95. Started teaching in Burlington, WI at Burlington Dance Academy in 2000 until now.
Currently teaching Kindness Not Weakness bboy dance and character development curriculum as well as throwing KNW events for the younger generation and up and coming bboy scene around Racine, Burlington, Madison and Milwaukee. Teaching the truth on the history and meaning of bboy and not letting stereotypes or media dictate this dance and culture. It’s imperative that we bring up young bboys and bgirls to become teachers and leaders to pass on knowledge, wisdom, and technique. I believe this dance is an artform like many other artforms, and that creation, self expression and dedication is what defines us as Artist/Bboys.
