Daichi “Nobi” Nakayama is a professional Tekken player from Japan who represents YAMASA.
This world-renowned player used to be a below-average student in school and because of that, he had to attend extra classes outside of the curriculum. This led to a lot of stress which he blew off at the arcade, finding an outlet in Tekken. The game made him forget about the stress and was something he was confident about. This continued even after he was done with middle school.
Nobi became so obsessed with Tekken that he'd skip classes to play the game until he ended up dropping out of high school to play. He did homeschooling online and later applied for a programming degree in a university but had to quit it as well cause he was too obsessed with Tekken. At that point, he was already competing in local tournaments and making a name for himself which steadily grew into a career in fighting games and becoming one of the best players in the world and Japan especially.
Some of his best achievements include winning EVO 2015, Canada Cup 2018 and eSports Nation 2019. He also got 2nd place at Thaiger Uppercut 2017 and REV Major 2019, 3rd place at FV Cup 2019 and countless top 8 finishes at major events.
