He teaches basic martial arts including physical and mental techniques and each student is taught at their own pace. With each achievement the students foundation grows stronger and the addition of real world self-defense is added.
Grandmaster Mickens believes in and lives by the tenets of martial arts. Most important to him is the appreciation shown him by the parents of his students for his mentoring of their children with his patience, perseverance, preciseness, and kindness.
