Grandmaster Villari has accomplished much with a minimum of publicity. 10,000 Black Belts and 15 million students after its conception, Villari’s Martial Arts Centers are now a far cry from the days when Fred Villari taught two students at seven in the morning in a walk-up studio in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Grandmaster Villari realized that the ultimate in self-defense lay not in one way or style of fighting. By combining the “Four Ways of Fighting.” he devised and developed ways to integrate diverse methods of fighting into one, eliminating weaknesses and vulnerabilities. This is the central theory and method behind Villari’s art of Shaolin Kempo Karate.

The backbone of the Villari’s style is the Shaolin system since he felt it was the best for promoting overall good health, wisdom and longevity. This system is well balanced, incorporating mind, body and spirit into one.

This method has spread throughout the world as more than 500 schools have been opened that teach his method.

Grandmaster Villari is still actively teaching and demonstrating the martial arts in his schools today.
