"Sleeping fox catches no poultry"

Anthony Rodriguez also known as “Invertebrate” was born and raised in New York City. Throughout his childhood, he was always the small hyperactive child who had a problem sitting still. His parents would put him in sports teams to channel all that energy into something productive. Invertebrate was on teams for basketball, baseball, football, and even wrestling but nothing could captivate his attention.

Being small and underweight was another hardship he had to face when competing in sports where it mattered, but it never stopped him from trying. Tired of being benched for height and weight requirements he went into a sport where it did not matter. Throughout High School Anthony was a professional Counter-Strike gamer where he would sit in front of his computer for countless hours training for big tournaments that had big cash prizes along with sponsorships.

Luckily for him, he had two close neighborhood friends Anthony and Julian, the twins who would drag him away from his computer to go have a “normal childhood”. On these getaways with the twins, they would do things like skateboard, climb rocks by the shore, and play night games of manhunt with all the local kids. On one of these twin getaways, they were excited to show Invertebrate some video tapes that their father gave them. The tapes were Beat Street, Breakin, Breakin 2, and Battle of the Year 1997.

After all this inspiration, Invertebrate and the twins wanted to start devoting their time to the dance. Over the next couple of years they would split and go to different high schools, but would still try meeting up and practicing together. One day the twins told Invertebrate they were starting a crew in their high school with some members on their gymnastics team at the time. Invertebrate was convinced that this was his calling, so he went along with transferring schools to join the same gymnastics team and to be the first inducted into 5 Crew Dynasty in 2004.
