About Villari’s

By joining Villari’s Self Defense Center, you will become a part of your community’s most respected martial arts association. At Villari’s we are not only interested in fighting skills, but the development of each person as a whole. These are the tools of everyday life.

We have a trained staff of patient instructors who love to work with children, but are also very clear about limits. We enforce good behavior in class, and expect it to carry over to school and home. A psychological study found that children in martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in willingness to take foolish risk, and a higher sense of self-esteem.

Villari’s is a family oriented school, where you can get involved in your child’s activity. Our mind/body training goes far beyond the benefits of standard health-club type exercise programs. We give you a full-body, stress relieving workout, and the best part is that you’ll be learning practical and realistic self defense skills at the same time. After a long day at work come recharge your batteries in a class that’s motivational and fun.

I initially decided to join karate for the exercise, but then soon realized the importance of learning how to defend and protect myself. Master Cheryl is a great instructor and pays equal attention to all belt levels. Her classes are fun and physically challenging and I am always glad I went.
