Dyzee: BBOY World Warrior

Description

I've been fortunate enough to know Dyzee since about 2008. We met while I was living in Korea and trying to take in as much of the culture as possible. Of course, a huge part of that is gaming and bboys. Why is he called Dyzee? Watch one of Dyzee's battles and you'll see! Or watch him do some really unique stuff with his fingers...

Over the years I've gotten to know him quite well and we've had a lot of meaningful conversations. It's truly been a blessing. Everything from relationships (he's married and I love learning from guys who can hold down a marriage) to spiritual. 

For Dyzee's resume he has everything from Bboy of the Year to the Spy Award: The World's most prestigious B-Boy lifetime achievement award. He even holds a Guinness World Record. But, probably the biggest reason I look up to Dyzee is that he gets to travel around the world, frequently, doing what he loves; AND, he gets paid for it. Which is pretty much exactly what I want to do. I tried when I was younger with martial arts, but I wasn't good enough.... Like RYU from Street Fighter: The World Warrior. Now, I'm trying to do it on my own. He's one of my inspirations. 

You CAN turn what you love into a living. You CAN help your craft evolve on a global scale. I love how he said his biggest obstacle was the haters. I can understand. I have a lot as well. I'm not quite sure why however. 

Watch the interview and enjoy!
