Martial Arts Programs for Adults, Teens, & Kids

Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, Villari’s Self Defense Centers offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.


Karate for Kids

Our children’s programs will help your child grow and learn life skills as well as karate. Karate is a fun, safe activity for kids of all ages. Designed to instill vital life-skills such as focus, respect, self-discipline and self-control within your child, we’ve created a super-fun curriculum so kids can’t wait to come to class.

Martial Arts for Teens

The teen years are fraught with temptations and threats on many fronts. The Teen program helps young adults to rise above peer pressure and excel socially as well as academically. Through martial arts training, your teen will learn guiding principles like consequences of actions, hard work and dedication, decision making and how to interact with others. Our program can help shape your teen’s future by providing a solid foundation for success.

Self Defense for Adults

Karate is a lifelong sport – it is never too late to start. Whether you are interested in getting in better shape, learning to defend yourself or just getting involved in something new, the benefits you get from our are far more than just learning how to punch and kick. Men and women of all ages have discovered that self defense training opens doors for mental, physical and emotional empowerment that they never realized.


Life Skills

We teach age appropriate self defense skills, but our program is primarily about character development and teaching positive life skills. By offering a values-based life skills curriculum as part of our overall martial arts program, we offer parents something their children won’t get anywhere else – a positive role model their children respect who can deliver important lessons that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Colors of Character

There is more to Karate than learning to kick and punch. The Colors of Character program was created to balance your child’s physical development with the concepts of Self Discipline, Self Control and Respect for Others. The program consists of a series of exercises designed to help you instill and strengthen your child’s understanding of these core character traits.

Advanced Training

We offer advanced training programs for both juniors and adults. Students further enhance their skills and deepen their knowledge when they combine personal lessons with group classes. The Advanced Training Program sessions are designed to allow the instructor to focus on the student, and his or her needs, and offers more focused time in the areas that the student needs the most attention in.


Every student is training to become a leader, not just here at Villari’s but at home, at school, and in the community. Above all we train to become leaders of our own lives. Leadership members are the students that have been selected from group classes that have stood out as people who have a stronger presence in classes and can assist the instructors to help their fellow students work towards achieving their own goals.

Martial Arts Clinics

Clinics are a great opportunity for anyone who would like to take the next step in their journey as a martial artist. Students have the opportunity to learn the details of how to break boards which is a great way to build confidence in their abilities. Students may also choose to learn a weapon which can help in several ways, including: more focus, balance, power and strength, and better coordination.


There are many great benefits that your child will derive from participating in a karate tournament. Whatever your child’s experience level or skill, karate tournaments are just the thing for them. Every participant in our tournaments benefits from the experience, regardless of the outcome. Everyone will enjoy the fun, excitement and camaraderie of this yearly event.
