Go behind the scenes at the Black Belt photo shoot that was done in New York City with Professor Mo, aka Mahaliel Bethea. This renowned martial artist is a master of the style called 52 Blocks, also known as Jailhouse Rock and "wall fighting" but more properly known as the "art of Africa."
Watch as Professor Mo teaches "shuffle the cards," a street-proven method for temporarily stripping an attacker of his ability to see, after which any number of follow-ups can be used to end the confrontation.
