About VShrews


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.

Why Choose VShrews?


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.
