On this episode of the Kinjaz PodKast our fellow Kinjaz brother and Superstar in China, the one and only, Jawn HA!
He is an artist, an entrepreneur, a vault of brain games and life quotes, but just an overall great dude and visionary.
If you're a part of this dance community then for sure you know who this guy is, but if you don't or your new to the scene we have something truly unique that will make your head explode.
time stamp: 2:57 for Jawn's section.
The first 10 minutes of the interview we get into how Jawn's brother Chris got him into dancing during High School in the All Male Dance Team.
There were definitely factors in making him want to dance but I'll let you find out the major influence.
At around the 10:20 mark Jawn says,
That was an insanely deep quote. I'm sure many of you have been faced with a decision that was completely life changing. He was faced with the decision to jump into the unknown away from the, "regular" life with "normal" decisions or to choose passion, curiosity, and dance. All themes that we've heard before on the PodKast.
My dad's Golden Rule was always just, "You can do whatever you want, but whatever you choose you must do it well."
Jawn's definition of Dance Community:
The community by definition is a group of people coming together to support one initiative.
At about the 22:40 mark Jawn talks about his clothing brand, Contour Hooligans and how it came to fruition with his best friend, Jeff Addenbrook.
To define the shape and form of something or anything.
A troublemaker; someone who causes a ruckus.
Someone who stands out.
The brand that defines the shape and form of people who stand out.
"If your brand has a culture then people will follow it."
Jawn mentions at 51:48 that a show called "Rap of China" popularized youth and Hip-Hop Culture in China.
Following the boom that it made, tv producers thought it might be good to highlight dance as well.
They hit him up because Jawn had appeared previously in 2016 on a different tv show but thought he would be perfect for the project.
