In my opinion, Ahmad Ali Mazhari is a great karate instructor, but if one were truly aware of his other negative qualities, that person would have to be insane to become or remain his student. I studied for many years under Mr. Mazhari, and for the bulk of that time, I believed him to be a wise, trustworthy mentor of the highest order. In the end however, it became clear that this opinion of him was based solely on his ability to manipulate me and others to suit his own needs. In my opinion, involvement with him is akin to being in a cult; he intentionally increases his influence in people’s lives over time until it extends well outside the dojo, and when the influence reaches that point, if you dare question him, you are immediately treated as though you were his mortal enemy.Based on my years of experience with him, the man is a selfish, duplicitous, hypocritical megalomaniac who cares about nothing so much as exerting control over the lives of people around him. Involve yourself with him if you must, but don’t say nobody warned you.
