Michael Graves is not really a master instructor he bought his master degree black belt level through the black belt magazine! He is really a 1st degree black belt but has several certificates and awards in his office from ordering them in his black belt magazine! Your asking yourself how i know about this let me explain i did some free lessons in his class and one of his students he was sparring took him out like he was nothing! I did a background check on him and found numerous things about him that shocked me big time! he is only a 1st degree black belt, He's very rude with his students and it was a huge mistake to even try out those free lessons! Please find a good school and stay away from Mahatos bullsh*t karate!

I agree with you 100%

AUTHOR: Ted - (United States of America)

Mahato Karate school is run by a real Jerk  and his  expertise is extremely questionable to me.

He is just a wannabe tough guy with a raunchy attitude. He sucks at running a martial arts school because he was unsuccessful twice and now he opened again for the 3rd time and hardly anyone trains there!

Word gets around if you act like a Moron in my opinion!

To Dave Jr. or whoever you are responding to your comment

AUTHOR: tanya7884 - (USA)

First and for most I checked with the usankf and  people please google it so i can prove that i can backup my facts! I looked at the usankf site and yes michael graves is in the hall of fame but ironicly its his own website and its not a legit federation! Here's a little FYI for you Dave I don't care if your upset or not i'm speaking the truth and no i'm not trying to take away his business and try to improve my business because i don't have my own school in the first place,

 Secondly a humble martial artist doesn't degrade another martial artist that transfers to his school that is very desrespectful to do! If he doesn't agree with a technique that i learned from another school he shouldn't call it watered down training or kindergarten karate! If i disagree with a technique he is teaching I wouldn't say anything to dishonor him I would keep an open mind and if i like it i'll keep it if i don't i won't bother with the technique but i would practice it in class and thank him for his instructions and end it with a bow! I'm only speaking the truth Dave I don't care if you believe me or not!

I know what a good martial artist is, A humble instructor is one that promotes love, respect and peace and has an open mind doesn't degrade other styles but learns from all aspects of styles and grows from it! There's always a style outside of the traditional style your training in that has something to offer that another style doesn't and yes mahato karate some of the techniques when i was there I saw a different way how to apply the techniques that i didn't learn in my former style and vice versa. But never Belittle another martial artist or try physical harm to them! That is very unprofessional! Thats all i have to say about that, Thank you " Bows Humbly"

Mahato Karate Student

AUTHOR: DojoDave - (USA)

Hi, my name is Dave .  This is for whoever is writing the bad things about Mahato Karate.  I have been a student of Micheal Graves since 1995.  One of the statements that was written about our school was that he does not care about his students.  Well, that is 100% false, and I am walking proof of that because I have been through a lot and he has helped me get through everything and has been by my side through every step of the way since i was 10 years old.  Another statement was made about his teaching.  Well, that can be easily solved.  I put my name up there and whoever dares to put theirs up be my guest and we would be able to settle that statement.  We are not a bout hurting any of our students in class, so that would be wrong also.  Sorry everyone but I'm a bit upset that someone is writing false statements about our school.  Mahato Karate is the best school that I have seen or been to.  If someone is upset about getting ripped off by Mahato, then come by the school with a receipt and talk with Micheal Graves to figure out what went wrong.  Again my name is David Jr., a proud student of Mahato Karate. Again if someone has a problem with his teaching I would be more than happy to settle that situation.
