Villari's of Shrewsbury
Villari's of Shrewsbury has been teaching the character-building and life-enhancing art of Shaolin Kempo Karate to both children and adults since 1991.
A blend of traditional martial arts and modern self-defense, Grandmaster Fred Villari's system combines what he considers the most practical applications of Japanese and Chinese styles, emphasizing not only effective fighting techniques and defensive strategies but also how to develop a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle through martial arts training.
Just one of the many independent martial arts schools that teaches the Villari system, Villari's of Shrewsbury prides itself on its fun, healthy, family-oriented environment committed to providing opportunities for all of its students to build confidence and character.

"Our students learn how to be responsible, compassionate, self-confident, respectful, and well-behaved in every class."
Villari's of Shrewsbury?
Many martial arts schools believe life lessons are inherent in training and can be learned only over time and through contemplation. We disagree.
Character-building happens every day in a million different ways and we incorporate our Three Rules of Respect, Self-Control, and Self-Discipline into every karate class in words and in actions so no student ever misses an opportunity to learn how to be a better person.
We know that goals are easier to achieve with the help and support of our family and friends. Guests are always welcome to watch classes from our lobby and on Family Days, we even invite them in to participate! We also take time to show respect to our family members during every class and let them know how much we appreciate them.
Our schedule and programs are designed to fit into your busy life. Choose one, two, or three classes per week. Switch class days from week to week depending on your schedule. Choose private lessons before or after classes. Let's figure out what works best for you!
Our mission is to help people live better lives through martial arts so while we take our training seriously, we don't always take ourselves so seriously. Nobody's perfect and we believe that mistakes are just new opportunities for learning. And we don't just mean for students! The staff at Villari's of Shewsbury is always willing to hear suggestions and ideas for how to improve your experience. There is always something new to learn when you empty your cup and open your mind to the possibilities!
We have students who win trophies and we are so proud of them! But we're also proud of the students who struggle with self-control or balance or self-confidence when they find themselves able to stand still, on one foot, in front of the whole class! Martial arts benefits students of all abilities and skill levels and we like to celebrate all of our students' accomplishments!
