in response to all the bad reviews
I have been searching for the best schools of martial arts for a long time. \r\r I know that not all schools are perfect but they strive to accomplish a great amount victories. petes karates school has been an outstanding school so far for me.\r\r But wat is not true is that they are disrespectfull . they are very good people and dont desrespect no body they are strict yes they are but that is the fundament of a grat martial arts school. \r\r Being strict has nothing to do with being disrespectful. They are totaly difrent subjects so have some respect . you dont like it thats why you are not there anymore, because you all belive that you were going to implant your own rules when no body is supossed to exept for the owners and the instructors. \r\r If you did not like it the best thing you did was leave but do not blame your faliors into the instructors blame it on yourself for not being able to cope to the preasure. \r\r To all you people who are searching for the best karate school visit us and experience for your self the diference of a grat school like peter allande karate school he is a ""Hall of Fame fighter"". \r\r Thanks sensei pete and Shihan pete sr. \r\r OSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In Response to the last Review
I have had my son in Pete's Karate on two separate occasions. He initially started under the tutelage of Sensei Pete at 5 when frustrated with his behavior in school and needing to find him stronger male role models, I enrolled him. It was the best thing I ever did. My son became more assertive, disciplined and even his teachers saw a change in him. I initially brought him 3 times a week and eventually went on to bring him 5 times a week. I only pulled him out due to the distance. I realized last year that both my children needed to go back and as a family, sacrifices were made to do that. I'm glad I did.I have never seen Shingon be disrespectful to either the students or the parents. His intensity and passion for the sport shows in everything he does and yes, Peter Allende Jr. is the Ying to his father's Yang. Both have the same commitment to the students, yet both have a different approach, with the same results. Shingon is so intense and that intensity can radiate to his students. Something we no longer see in an age where all kids are made to believe that ""every one is a winner""until they get to the real world and are faced with major disappointments they can recover from. Children in this day and age are coddled way too much. They're treated like precious glass that is too easily broken. Why would you put your children in Karate and expect them to be treated like Princesses? Karate is a FIGHTING SPORT? Did you think they dance their way to a trophy? Shingon does not disrespect, but he's not going to 'baby' your child either. That won't help him/her win in the sport or at life. We already live in a world where we are taught everything is easy and we end up with teenagers on medications cause they can't cope with the harshness of high school? Ridiculous. Life is tough and full of road blocks. I brought my kids back to Pete's Karate because they're taught that when life throws a roadblock in front of them, they'll be able to kick it down!!! Wh...

CONDESCENDING AND RUDE OWNER-
this person states that this school is not a day care, but yet leaves the student doing homework. Is also funny how this parent defines the owner as a ""old school, intense individual, which some people may come across not understanding his way condes cending and rude individual. While is true that his son is new school,also a fact that his opinion does not count, for this organization. If you would like to see more, please ask around, especially all the parents that have left, because of the unprofessional way this person deals with the parents and students, talking to them like they are puppets. Sure! if you want a school that teaches values like have no respect for the individual and learn karate for their own benefits, or ""real deal"" yes this is the school for you! and please dont forget to whoever wrote this, that even though people dont say their names, because they know the intense of mr old school, there is still freedom of speech in the US that is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, meaning that parents are entitled an opinion other than yours! this are some characteristics that maybe should be integrated somewhere in your curriculum (if there's one: Characteristics of martial arts of the mainland are:1.Since karate are practiced with two people, the roles of defense and offense are clearly defined so the use of the techniques is easy to understand.2.There are instructional manuals. (Techniques are clear)3.There is a system for advancement in rank.4.The styles have names. (The lineage of instructors is clear.) It would be nice to see some kind of lesson plan, in writing about expectations, purpose and what is expected, but I just forgot: there's not even a contract!! In many parents books, this school does not offer organization, any potential, purpose or in any way teaches a future to any student other than show them how to be rude and disrespectful!!!OH YESSSS!! THE FAMOUS COMPETITIONS!!!!!! Where the training is ""make

Pete's Karate -The Best Karate school without a doubt!
Ok! Here is the ?REAL DEAL?.\r\r I?m a parent and my daughter, is one of their students. \r\rFor all the comments made on this site, that are written, these individual(s) first:\r\r1. Do not reveal who they really are - So how can you tell that the review is legitimate. \r\r2. All negative feed back - If true, is a result of a person that was trying to bend the rules for his or her own benefit and not obeying the rules that are set in place by the instructors. (Remember we are not a Day care school)\r\r3. The reason why other students ""judge"" - The Friday sparring sessions is to teach them how to become officials at the Karate tournaments. This not only helps develop the skill needed for this, but also allows the student to see the ""action"" from the insideWhere it matters the most. \r\rSo obviously the person or people writing these negative reviews don't know anything about Sport Karate and are novice to it.\r\rI am not hiding behind any ""aka's"" or screen names, I will proudly say that Pete's Karate is the BEST school in town to learn the true art of SPORT KARATE! \r\rThe instructors and owners have helped many of their students, including my daughter to be able to get modeling jobs, movie deals and become champions recognized by NASKA and FAME2K circuits. Not only do they teach how to compete, but they also teach ""real life"" values that go beyond the karate life. If anyone is looking to join a karate school, and doesn't want to be ""jipped"" out of real training, then don't look anywhere else. Come and be taught by a Nationally Ranked instructor with over 26 years of experience. If you want to compete at the National Level, the training that you need is found here. I know, I take my daughter to not only regional but also national tournaments as well. \r\rThe belts here are earned, not given away. If you want a REAL Black Belt, earned by years of experience and hard work and real training, then this is the school for you. \r\rThe owners (Sen...

amateur karate school
caution when registering your children in this particular ""dojo"". The person in charge has little lack of respect towards his attitude to parents and children. He sells this as a school and there is not a curriculum to follow, and one can see this on Fridays, where the children are fighting without any supervision and there is not instructors, but advance students supervising themselves. When there is a new prospective customer, the director abandon the class and disrespect others schools around to engage them in this gimmick. He presents the offer of not compromise to non attach one to the contract, the same as non curriculum, so he can do whatever he wants, disrespect who he wants with no compromise, be very cautions and aware before committing to this dream of illusion and where it only looks legit on the web.
