Mark Mikita is the real deal. I’ve spent the last ten years interviewing and training with World Champion boxers and UFC fighters, so believe me when I tell you that Mark is the real deal; he understands, into his bones, what he is teaching.
Through a lifetime of intelligent, driven, directed study, Mark mastered his subject. Mastery not just in the physical sense, but also in terms of essence, understanding, truth.
Training under Mark reminds me of reading Bobby Fischer’s chess games, there is elegance and economy, but most of all, I am reminded continuously of the essentials – the bloody heart – of what we are about as fighters and students of self-defense.
