Have you noticed a difference in the style or skills between different areas of the world?

Jumpers and breakers had different responses to this question. Jumpers explained a wide array of different styles amongst different countries. For example, LJ explained that US jumpers value creativity highly while European and Asian jumpers focus on developing the most dense and high-scoring routine based on the rule book. Breakers explained that there isn't a fundamental difference in the skills breakers perform around the world but there’s a slight difference in the style. Noah explains how he can tell that breakers from Asia and other countries are imitating those from the US, and specifically New York City, where breakers tell more of a story and have more emotion.
