The `Bonkers` rapper - who is facing a lifetime ban from British Airways after recently being thrown off a flight for allegedly abusing an air stewardess - practices the martial art to de-stress.
He told BANG Showbiz: "I`ve been spending my time doing Thaiboxing in Kent - it`s great. I do it because I like beating people up."
The 25-year-old hip-hop star - whose last album, `Tongue N` Cheek`, was released in 2009 - has also turned his hand to photography as he takes time out from his music career.
Speaking at the `Bing Your Britain` photography competition hosted at Blackhall Studios in London`s Shoreditch on Tuesday night (12.07.11) - where he had some of his own work on display - he added: "Photography is something that`s always interested me, it`s great to have been involved in this. I just went back to my roots to take some pictures."
Dizzee - real name is Dylan Mills - was recently thrown off a British Airways plane bound for Portugal, resulting in him missing a gig at the Optimus Alive! festival in the European country, after he was reportedly abusive towards a steward.
