The Art of Battle Alien Ness Book

Language: English

The Art of Battle is the first ever manual created specifically for the bboy who enters judged battles.

Within the pages are the keys to be successful in any situation a bboy might face in a battle.

This is a full collection of strategies, things to consider, advice for preparation, training, runs, sets, commandos, routines and a study of gestures and burners.

"If you ain't doing what (Alien Ness) is doing, you ain't doing nothing." - Wyclef Jean, Fugees

"When (Alien Ness) came out, the game changed!" - Mr. Wiggles, Rock Steady Crew

"Dedicated to all the students of dance World Wide" - Alien Ness, Mighty Zulu Kings

"Without battling, bboying itself would not exist. Every aspect of the dance was created for competition, and every move is judged according to its effectiveness as a weapon. Through battle, b-boys and b-girls learn to use humble discipline as a foundation for arrogant creativity. They transform precision and finesse into symbols of raw aggression. They attack without mercy, yet still see their opponents as distinct and valuable human beings.

Ultimately, battling teaches its disciples how to style to reconcile opposing forces, a skill that may well be at the heart of Hip-Hop itself. It is certainly the reason why Alien Ness can simultaneously be one of b-boying's most vicious warriors and also one it's most respected diplomats." - Joe Schloss, author; "Making Beats: The Art of Sample-Based Hip-Hop"

Improve your practice and battle tactics!
Reviewer: Barry / BBoy GRIZ from Pittsburgh  
I read Art of Battle cover to cover and I would definitely recommend it.  Alien Ness knows as much about battle theory as anyone and has alot of unique insights from his decades of experience.  He goes very in depth on style development, training drills and battle tactics in a clear, easy to understand way.  The only weird thing is the writing is in all caps and there's no page numbers.  That was the only reason I didn't give it a perfect rating but it was still pretty easy to read.  It's the best selling book on CypherStyles and I got alot out of it.  Recommended for every bboy and bgirl who wants to improve both their practice sessions and battle tactics.Barry / BBoy GRIZ, Founder of CypherStyles.com, Inc.

Valuable info. exucuted poorly
Reviewer: Potato from Idaho  
The book itself is rather poorly produced. No page number and all caps is a pain. Also, there was one page that was actually double printed. This isn't  like a college text book so don't expect "foundation" by Joseph G. Schloss writing. Now the good stuff, Ness knows what he's talking about. Granted it might be executed poorly at times but this information is invaluable. Tons of gems in this book that just click once you read it. It is a short easy read that is crammed with information.
