“Everyone kind of has the same framework in terms of how the movement actually works. But it's up to you to show your most original interpretation of it that's still somewhat cohesive.” — Nico Castro Aguilar

"I have Filipino experience; I have an American experience that I can contribute to. How I build upon that's motivating all these different maneuvers. So, I do really think it's important to go outside of breaking to improve the originality of breaking." — Nico Castro Aguilar
