S4 Ep. 6 - The 52 Blocks C52G System (Feat. Farisi Daniel Marks‪)‬ Leading By History

    • Education

In this episode of Leading By History, Ma'asehyahu Isra-Ul speaks by phone with 52 Blocks Farisi (instructor) Daniel Marks. This is a rare interview as Farisi Marks does not regularly communicate with outside media about this art. Having its roots centuries old Africa, this indigenous warrior art was adapted for inner-city survival. Making its modern home in Brooklyn, New York, this form of fighting is a blend of traditional boxing cadence, footwork and movement with a high powered methodology of blocking and parrying which some have called "Dirty Boxing". This implies that the fighting style could not be used in the traditional boxing ring in its fullness but was practical and effective for self-defense on the mean streets of New York. From New York, this style traveled to places like Philadelphia, Chicago and even California. Known by various names (i.e. Stato, Jailhouse Rock) this fighting art is unique to African Americans of the diaspora and is held dear by those who have been privileged to learn its moves. This conversation is not erudite but practical, real and respectable. If you are excited to learn more - tune in now! Learn more about Farisi Daniel here: https://m.youtube.com/user/FarisiDaniel
