Grandmaster Fredrick J. Villari
Grandmaster Fredrick J. Villari has accomplished with hardly any publicity. You won’t often see him in Martial Arts magazines public pages. However, with 10,000 Black Belts & 15 million students after its conception, Villari’s Martial Arts Studios are now a far cry from the days when Fred Villari taught two students at seven in the morning in Waltham, Massachusetts. The names Villari and Shaolin Kempo Karate are synonymous with East Coast Kempo. In 1995, the annual Villari national tournament, held at the World Trade Center (Boston), drew 10,000 spectators to watch 5,000 participants. Today, Villari’s Martial Arts Studios in Toronto are the foundation of the Asian martial arts in Canada.

We have spent the last 8 years at Vallari’s Ajax. Master Rob as a tough but, playful relationship with his students. He encourages growth and confidence. This is a great program for bullying. Master Rob works well with his special needs students.

My son was having behavioral issues before starting class with Master Rob, after only a month there has been a drastic, positive change in his attitude and attention span, and best of all he enjoys attending classes. Master Rob is very patient, understanding and well versed in dealing with, and teaching the younger students.

Instructors Rob and Nick are an awesome combination! Each one brings years of experience and expertise, each having their own style of teaching that together gives a complete, multi layered understanding not just of what to do but why you are doing it. Real life application for self defence! I have so much respect for their integrity, care and skills. My grandson started years ago with Villari’s Ajax, his mom is now going and I have been going there a few years myself. I highly recommend them!
