Dallion King, who is popular as Mr Moves, has proved his mettle at every stage of life.

The more you struggle, the more you get nearer to success, they say. Well, this is a true story of a young man who knew that he had to face the challenges of life, but he also knew that handling them all with courage, grit and confidence could help him lead a much happier life and that is what he did. We are talking about Dallion King, a basketball player of the Dominican Republic National Team. But, like many multi-talented individuals, there is more to Dallion King as well.

Dallion King earned his nickname “Mr Moves” after excelling in his sports as a pro basketball player. However, the journey to achieve this status of life was never a cakewalk for him. Born on November 18, 1995, and hailing from the lower east side of New York, Dallion King had to see a childhood that came along with many challenges. As any broken family would affect a child, it affected Dallion King as well as he did not have the guidance of his father in his growing years.

But, his affinity towards playing basketball was since his childhood and as he desired to do something in the same, he watched several YouTube videos to self-learn the sport when he was all of only 12 years and enhanced his skills to become a professional by practicing at the local grounds of the city. With improving upon his abilities and talents as a basketball player soon, he got the chance to play at the famous Dyckman Park. This led to his another success and gave him a scholarship at the Montclair State University.

As years passed by and as Dallion King grew as a sportsman, he thought to expand his career with jumping into becoming an entrepreneur as well. Looking at kids play at a playground with wearing shoes, he decided to open a charity named “Simple Things” that does philanthropy work for the many in need. Since his nickname gained him much recognition in life, he came up with his athletic brand named “Mr Moves”.

After joining hands with many prominent brands like Adidas, Handles Life, Jordan, and many more, he and his brand gained more momentum. His next venture came with “MossMoves Seamoss”, an Irish Seamoss company that worked around nutrients for boosting the immune system and helping people with digestion as well.

Dallion King reunited with his father years later and today both of them have initiated a jerk restaurant named “Da Jerkyard” in North Hollywood, CA. Building a gym next to his restaurant is his next plan for fitness camps and athletes in the name of “Jerkyard Fit”. Very soon, Dallion King would also be introducing his merchandise line called “Make Moves”.

Dallion King inspires the world with the kind of work he has done so far and the kind of work he still aims to do in the future.
