From Tokyo, Japan, B-Boy Issei has been making waves and winning high level solo competitions since he was age of 15 years old.
A member of FoundNation crew and a Red Bull BC One All-Star, Issei started breaking at the age of 6 years old after a friend took him to an event at a dance studio, at which he still uses for training today.
Even thought his parents wanted him to quit dancing when he reached secondary school, Issei continued to pursue a career as a B-Boy, and since has won a long list of titles all over the world. Amongst his many wins are, the 2016 Red Bull BC One World Finals Champion, the 2012 and 2013 R16 Solo B-boy winner, the 2013 IBE Super Solo Battle winner, and the 2015 Freestyle Session Japan winner.
Issei has a playful yet high energy, power moves based style, with which he always expresses the music in a way that make everything he does look effortless.
Issei loves that through his dance he is able to connect with new people from around the world, even when they don't speak the same language as him. It is through Breaking that he finds he can best express himself and claims that he is no genius and was not born with a strong physique but believes that practicing can make anyone the best B-Boy in the world!
