How to Do Bone Breaking

Learn how to do bone breaking in this street dance video from Howcast.


Hello, this is your boy Jino Fort and I'm going to show you how to do a bone break illusion. A bone break illusion can be slightly hurtful if you don't know what you're doing so make sure you do stretch and you have the gist of the bone break/flexing before you do this exercise. Okay so the first one I want to show you is called the bone break to the left.

What you're going to do is you're going to take a left or right arm, whichever one you're comfortable with, and you're going to turn it all the way around and drop it to the left. Now that's a very good illusion, it's very show-stop. It can turn almost any crowd.

So take your right arm, and hold your left for leverage so it doesn't come out of place too quickly and you have resistance on it. And you're going to point to it, make sure you point your hand straight as you can. Whichever arm you're using, you're gonna point it straight.

So you wanna go one, two, and on three your shoulder's going to come out, three, and on four you're going to drop your whole left arm or right arm to the left or right, like so. Four. Like that. So I'm gonna do it again. I'm gonna take it out.

Make sure it's straight so you have a line and people can't see what you're doing, it is not sloppy. You don't want it to be sloppy. So you go one, two, three, see how my shoulder comes out on three? And on four you make a left. Four. There's still a line. let's try it again. Five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four.

Another bone break move to do is slightly easier and easier to practice with. What you're going to do is put your arm up, left or right, whichever one you're comfortable with, and you're going to slowly scratch this out, it looks like a regular scratch but it's really not, you can use it as a scratch I guess, but what you're going to do is put your left hand or your right hand on your left or right elbow, like so.

See how I go up? Elbow, up. Drop. And pull. Now for you to get that far back there there's a step you can take. You go, one, two, and you slowly just go like this.

It's like you're trying to break your shoulder blade down a little bit, but just do this slowly. The more you do it the more it will break further and you'll be able to get farther and so eventually you'll be able to take it behind you. Now once you take it behind you you're going to let go and it's going to come under your right shoulder. So you're going to drop it like so. One, two, three, four.
