This school is a joke. I heard from a friend that there was a wonderful Mixed Martial Arts program at this Hudson Valley Karate. When I went to check it out, I was greeted by this so called "Master" (that's what he called himself) Peter Antonelli. I inquired about the MMA class and made an appointment to check it out. When I told my friends, they told me to make sure I got the REAL MMA guy and not this "Master" Antonelli. I guess there is or was a guy who was legitimate using space at Antonelli's school. When I called the school to find out, I was told that this was a different MMA program because they were teaching a new art called Korean Jiu Jitsu. I then knew this guy was another poser trying to call himself a mixed martial arts instructor, but I wanted to give this school the benefit of the doubt. I didnt have a chance to see the entire school when I first stopped by, but what an impressive facility when you pull in. It seemed very spacious, (however it did have a feint smell of urine). When I arrived for my class, I was dumbfounded to find out I was going to be taught by what appeared to be a 15 year old child. Not only does this so called master not teach MMA, but he has CHILDREN as instructors. Before someone should be able to teach me how to survive on the street, they should at least be old enough to vote.
Immediately after this "class", not only do they have the tenacity to try and get me to put down a $1,000 down payment with a 3 year commitment, but the guy who is actually teaching MMA had a class going on. It seems as though this "master" peter Antonelli and Hudson Valley karate are in the business of misleading the public.
You don't have to take my word for it...go ahead...visit the school. You will see for yourself.
