Please people beware of this Martial Art School Mahato Karate, 1st real problem is the head instructor Michael Graves gets very offensive if you had previous training in martial arts and you decide to join his school he will degrade your experience in the style you trained in and your former instructor! Example: he will have you demonstrate various skills from your other school than he will tell you that is a watered down version of karate etc. and he will tell you that its kindergarten karate and his style is superior and he will take each technique that you demonstrated to him and tell you why its not good and why his is better! Michael Graves will also demonstrate a technique he is teaching the class on you to personally attack you in class and intentionally try to hurt you while showing his students the technique you'll be practicing on one another! I Personally went through all of this and broke the contract with him and moved on to a great school! In my humble opinion I think Michael Graves is a small minded martial artist and is very rude and he clearly isn't humble at all like a true martial artist should be! I feel someone really needs to wipe the floor with him to straighten him out! He really needs a hard lesson from another martial artist!
The 2nd problem is the classes aren't structured at all its like training in the YMCA you just go in and whatever they want to do that class you do that technique and you never see that technique ever again after that class! He will test you on techniques that you never learned and will insist that he taught you them! he claims to have a wide variety of styles he himself teaches you when in fact he only teaches karate do and he gets other instructors to teach the other styles that he has no knowledge of! Please People if you are serious about your training and don't want to be harassed then stay away from this school and find a great school like i did! Take care everybody and God bless "Bows"
