Hey guys, just want to share my views and classifications of the melbourne shuffle.
Note: These are for my own personal reference and i hope it will help certain people understand what every "style" is about cause people will say STOP CLASSIFYING IT !! ITS JUST THE MELBOURNE SHUFFLE!!! Yes it is....but come on man? If you don't do it....someone else will do it for you...and you will be like omg wtf is MAS Style...wtf man? But if you give it leeway sorta *The TB guidelines* Then you give people the basic understanding of what and why each style is classified the way it is.
To me there are many classifications of the MELBOURNE SHUFFLE
Melbourne Shuffling - Mix of runningman and the "T-Step" and a little upper body movement with some kicks and spins...more chilled and relaxed
Refer to Ben :
Old Schooling - More T-step and a little runningman (depending on the shuffler) but essentially there is more emphasis on creativity using the whole body. *upper and lower*
Refer to Kitchen Shuffler :
New School - What you might call tb style emphasis on the overuse of the runningman with lots of force and a couple of spins and kicks....for reference look up HSA Sacco or HSK Mikki. No i have nothing against them (thats sorta lie with mikki but w/e) but these are just examples.
Ahhh now we get to the interesting part....
MAS Style - A carbon copy of any "famous" malaysian shuffler. e.g Ochibi, Speedodevo (Now he sucks LOL) etc etc all those big names bleh... But essentially everyone has a different style but it only becomes a classification once a whole bunch of faggots copy it....sometimes it is a requirement to copy it for lets say a competition where everyone has to look the same to be in sync (but still can have their own individual style)
Refer to the THF Performance :
Honestly massive respect to these guys for being able to "conform" as well ass maintain they're individuality during the solo section. you might think that they are faggots cause they look like everyone else...but think of it this way, if you started to shuffle with certain moves and patterns and every kid followed you, do you think its right for someone from here to all you a fag?
Hardstyling : The focus of a a nice good hard rock Steady Runningman and move sets (not MOVES but your own patterns and sets that make you unique) that define you as a hardstyler.(This will be a controversial topic and ill get flamed more or less but this is just my opinion) Because in reference to melbourne rockers 2 they almost all shuffled exactly the same to me *thats why i could classify them as a style* Please do not take offence with this as i love melbourne rocking. Anyhow
I break this up into 2 Melbourne Rockers and the Rockers
Melbourne Rocker - Harder runningman using a crunch movement (your ab's) mixed with plenty of slides kicks and hat tricks.
Refer to Melbourne Rockers 2 -
Rockers - More emphasis on a unique style of runningman and certain move sets that make you more of an individual
Refer to Len :
Refer to Yan And Slackshoes :
Well this concludes my descriptions and i will update it when i have more time cause im in class now LOL.
gpp klo blom sampe tahap itu, at least lo mnuju k style yg jelas. sbener nya lebih gampang klo blajar shuffle tau lo mau blajar yg mana, dan lebih bagus lagi klo ada orang yg inspired lo. jadi ada yg bsia d jadiin contoh, based on their styles. tp inget, smua orang punya style sendiri2, jd ga mungkin lo bisa tiru exactly the same.
ini mungkin lebih jelas bwat contoh MAS style.
differences from melbourne lebih ke runningman nya. peratiin runningman nya beda bgt sm melbourne. MAS style doing the RM using their body. mreka ngedorong kakinya pake badan. and the variations also, MAS punya lebih banyak dan punya ciri khas sendiri yg jelas beda bgt dari melbourne. skarang melbourne doing more gliding as their variations.
Sbnrnya semua nya sama aja: Melbourne Shuffling.
Sengaja dibahas styles dsini buat yang pengen memperdalam aja biar lebih gampang buat dicerna
Just do whatever you want, it's Melbourne Shuffle!
