Martial arts teacher arrested

bull graphicsMaster Joseph Moscatelli, who owns 2 martial arts studios in Guildford and Branford Connecticut, was arrested for  secretly video taping employees and students, one as young as 15 years old.

Moscatell likely taught at United Studios of Self Defense Studios  — assuming this Web page is accurate and lists the same Moscatelli. USSD schools always advertise that they teach “Karate and Kung Fu”, which one of the original stories mentioned. (“Moscatelli owns two martial arts studios that teach karate and Kung Fu.”)

Moscatelli was charged with voyeurism and risk of injury to a minor after someone at one of the schools he owns called the police with evidence. Police found several videos of employees and an underage student in various stages of undress, police said.

The school in Guildford where police say the hidden camera was has since shut down as police continue to investigate.
