Our philosophy of martial arts training at Villari’s blends centuries-old techniques and skills with the fitness, conditioning and self-defense needs of today’s martial arts students.


Our goal is to help young children build qualities that lead to future success. At Villari’s Self-Defense Center, young students have a lot of fun while they learn the martial arts from trained and caring instructors. Our program is designed specially to develop respect, self-control and discipline. The physical skills children learn through Shaolin Kempo Karate will help build their self-confidence and self-esteem.

When teaching various kicks, punches and techniques our instructors emphasize and constantly reinforce our philosophy that martial arts is never to be used in an aggressive manner. Rather, these skills are to be used in self-defense and as a last resort, only.

In short, martial arts training at Villari’s channels a child’s boundless energy and enthusiasm into a positive physical and mental foundation that’s vital to any child’s future.

At Villari’s Self Defense Center we teach Grandmaster Villari’s famous “Four Ways of Fighting” in all of our Shaolin Kempo Karate classes. However, in the Adult classes we focus more heavily on the principles and meanings of the maneuvers students learn. At the same time discussing the application and brutal efficiency of such maneuvers. In other words, true reality based Self-Defense.

When practicing the martial arts at Villari’s our friendly, experienced Black Belt instructors share an emphasis on proper technique and remind adult students that they should learn and perform some of the more difficult maneuvers at their own pace and skill level.

Group and Private lessons are available to fit your busy schedule. Choose from classes at noon, in the evenings or on Saturday morning.
