How to Do a Cool Krumping Move

Learn how to do a cool krumping move in this street dance video from Howcast.


Hello, this is Jino Fort again, and I'm going to teach you how to retract. Retraction is basically, pulling on the body and then popping off with something. Now retraction can be very cool on certain beats. You know the beats of the song that goes - like use it any way you want. Pull it and lock it up. It's good to use the krump popping and all those harder styles, the harder styles of hip-hop, I would say. Like with krump, use it. Bah, boom, bah, boom -

Like you'll hit a crazy beat and you'll look so visual. It just looks like: Wow, do you see what you just did? So I'm going to show you a simple routine with retraction. So your first step is going to be one. You're going to get your hand, grab it, pull it, let it go. Catch it, very strong and throw it to the side. So you have four movements. It's going to be one, two, three, four.

On three, you have to make sure you stop. So one, two, make it look believable, three, keep it there. Don't let it move. Four, you want to throw it. So we're going to try that. Five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four. Try it again. The retraction part comes in when I bounce off. So I'm pulling, slingshot... You can act that way any way you want to. You can act like it's flinging you and your head is like "What's happening?" But you have to stop on that third step. So five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four. Try it again, five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four.
