The Competitive Breakin' League™ grew out of The Lab DC, a school dedicated to Breakin' as a sport and art form. It all began when The Lab began to hold Breakin' tournaments for kids. Slowly over time, a set of rules was written and slowly it began to evolve into the sport you see today. The CBL has a set of rules and regulations, a professional scoring system for the Competitive Breakin' Sport and an application system. The copywriter criteria and rule book is constantly evolving with the times as the level of Breakin' rises. 

The CBL holds regional competitions within the United States to qualify Top Breakers for the Competitive Breakin' Championships at Rock the Box USA (RTBUSA). 

Quote " The rules and regulations are a product of years of testing, mostly trial and error to identify a fair and practical method to organize and provide feedback to competitors. The foundation is education and that is what makes it special." Antonio Castillo, creator
