Molly Cumber batch: Tutting battle

Wilson Hong: Practice you got to practice, obvious to be good at anything you've got to practice, but what did Jamal say?

Molly Cumber batch: Making sure that you know musicality, know what songs and know what's coming up next throughout the account of the music transition.

Wilson Hong: Learn your music, you've got to know read it, you got to understand it, you got to know what's coming up and just be ready for it, once you have a touchdown you have a pattern and when you know what to do next, what's coming up next you have got to combine them.

Molly Cumber batch: It's all about being able to beat kill, beat kill not be killed, Beat, kill the beat off, do it really wide, do it really wise, do it really great and do it really smooth.

Wilson Hong: Get everyone sucked into your dance and just destroy it, it could be illusions, 3D, mime it could be what? As long as it is watchable and you understand what it is?

Molly Cumber batch: A kill off is like basically like the last ending movement, you know like someone has the last song to the major concert or the last joke to a really great comedy show, the kill off is all about the last movement, the last 8 movements of your tutting or your freestyle, being able to show people this is what the bang is, the big kaboom.

Wilson Hong: You could be doing badly the whole time but as long as you've got a kill off at the end, it changes the whole game around.

Molly Cumber batch: The kill off is the home run the slum dunk, the three pointer at the last second.

Wilson Hong: It's over, you get the perfect kill off with the perfect beat, you have it down with your practice, games over.
Molly Cumber batch: For example as a the kill off say if I was like came out with my arms and legs out just like this, I might drop my ankle down, bring it back u, get it together, slide up, boom I killed you off just now with about two movements just all together as one.
