Welcome to
Fred Villari's Studios of Self Defense

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Great Grandmaster Fred Villari.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at Fred Villari's Studios of Self Defense is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

Excellent self protection system to learn, very though and complete in fighting system. learning a hard style from a traditional system not only teaches you to defend your self but to live a better life

I tried all through my twenties and early thirties to find an exercise program that I would enjoy and would stick with. I tried the gym, aerobics and yoga but nothing stuck. I thought I had always wanted to learn karate so I finally went in to try it. Now over 20 years later I guess you can say I found something that I could stick with! The program not only transforms you physically, but it engages your mind and emotions. I built a confidence that affects every aspect of my life. Master Armen inspires you to try harder without pushing. Try it and you will not regret it!

I have been taking lessons here from Master Armen for the better part of 17 years, since I was six years old. What I’ve learned here goes far beyond martial arts; he has taught me to be confident and strong, and to believe in myself. I cannot recommend this program strongly enough.

This school is awesome. I have been training here since 1991 and I don't regret a single class. Master Heroian is an awesome instructor. He inspires us all as students to strive to be our best in not just the martial arts, but in daily life. He makes the classes not only upbeat and fun, but Master Heroian also stays in touch with what is going on in the area to make our training more practical for the streets. This school is one you definitely want to check out. You won't be disappointed.

Our family has been training in this dojo for 7 years now. I have watched each of my four children thrive and change greatly with each passing belt. They each have different strengths and different needs, and master Heroian does a great job teaching them individually. Self defense and martial arts techniques are taught alongside character building blocks such as perseverance, self control, humility, self esteem, discipline, strength of will, and more. Our family gives it 5 stars!
