Since its inception, Villari’s has taught more than 15,000,000 students & brought more than 10,000 of them to black belt.

Studying the martial arts is an excellent way to develop strength, flexibility, coordination, reflexes and timing.

What sets the martial arts apart from other sports is that it also helps build social confidence and character by reinforcing the values of self-control, respect, self-discipline and responsibility.

These qualities build inner strength and make one confident and secure in the face of life’s adversities.
