Editorial Reviews

As beautiful and sleek as it is deadly, 52 Blocks merits special conservation efforts as the United States' only existing native martial culture, as it is indeed, the jazz of the martial arts world. Across the African diaspora, there are manifestations of African-derived warrior-dances, capoeira in brazil, mani in Cuba, ladja in Martinique, pinge in Haiti- yet the US offshoot has remained esoteric, because it was suppressed throughout slavery, Reconstruction and Jim Crow and then obscured in the criminal justice system.

The history, interviews and training of the martial arts style that created Breakdance and boxing greats like Mike Tyson

First of all I would like to say being a product of my environment I grew up around this style of fighting and to see this dvd It really gives you an insight on what the style is and where the style came from. If your looking to learn the style from this video than this product is not for you but if you want a down and dirty insight on the techniques and the skill its self please buy this DVD. Its a very strong depiction of the lost fighting style of the United States.

I have to say this was an intriguing and informative video. Well worth watching over and over to pull as much knowledge from these old school brawlers as possible.
