Shock the World Japan 2016 Recap

G-Shock’s annual celebration of all things extreme went down recently in Japan, where the toughest of the tough showed their skills. Competitors went head to head in skateboarding, BMX and breakdancing comps, while bands rocked out to a stadium of cheering fans. Nimble fingers danced on the decks with a DJ demo, drone pilots showed off their quickly growing sport – there was even a display of something called ‘street kendama’, which can only be described as extreme cup-and-balling. Of course, the focus of the day was the notorious-G, as attendees were treated to exhibits of the latest tech and style from the party starters at G-Shock. Fingers crossed the next stop on the Shock the World roster is a little closer to home.
