We have had a positive experience at Villari's. the instructors are wonderful. They do a great job creating a fun but structured environment. The kids learn so much more than karate. I would recommend it to anyone.

My daughter started karate at vilaris when she was almost 5. We could see considerable difference in Sara's confidence and ability to express herself in a group. The three rules that the program emphasizes on , are pretty much inclusive of all the dos and don'ts of good behavior. The masters are energetic and friendly but also have good control over the group.

We started coming to Villari's to help my 5-year old son get some exercise and help him learn to focus before starting kindergarten. I see improvement in him every week, but I expected that. What I did not expect was that my shy 8 year-old daughter asked to start classes as well, and I am so thrilled to see her grow and gain self-confidence. The instructors are so good at maintaining high expectations while remaining positive and encouraging.

Villari's is amazing, my daughter wanted to start karate because he uncle did it when he was younger. Little did she know it was going to be great for her mind and body. She gets a great work out and she has also gained so self esteem. She feels great and loves to go to classed. Master Gray and all of the instructors are so amazing and great with the children. I am thankful for my daughter wanting to try and and sticking with it. She is determined to get her black belt.

My son, Jarris, has been coming to Villaris for a few years now. He looks up to Master Gray and all the instructors. I've noticed a drastic change at home with his behavior and in school due to him coming to karate. He listens better and controls himself to the best of his ability; he is 7 years old after all. Last year, there was an incident with my son at school where he decided to put his hands on another child, because he wouldn't be quiet; after one conversation with Master Gray he never did it again. I would highly recommend Villaris to anyone inquiring about Martial Arts.

It's great to watch their self confidence grow as they practice standing in front of their peers and leading an exercise.

My husband went through the Villari's Martial Arts system back in the 90s and had an extremely positive experience with it. Fast forward to today and my boys have been going to the Newington studio for almost 8 years now. It has definitely played an important role in shaping them to be the confident, respectful, and focused individuals they are today. Master Gray helps focus the students on being the best they can be in a manner where they can carry it outside the dojo and into their daily lives-school, home and other sports activities. Also, he is very open to working with the kids who do have other activities, such as sports etc. so they can do both. He wants the kids to be as committed to the program as he is.

My son has been going to Villari's for 7 years. A few years ago we transferred to this location because it was more convenient for us. Master Gray has been a great influence on our son. He makes learning fun, has a great sense of humor, and never makes any student feel bad. He builds self confidence, works on physical endurance and agility, and helps the kids to learn respect, self discipline and self control. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for the best for the child!

Villari's Martial Arts is the best Karate Studio. My son doesn't have the best attention span. We have tried sports, another Karate Studio, and he wasn't interested in any of it. Within the first week of trying Villaris my husband and I noticed a change. Yes you learn martial arts, but its so much more. Respect, Self Control, and Self Discipline, which is what they teach their students as well. The instructors are amazing, and really know how to reach their students in a fun, and positive way.

After trying out a couple of Marital Arts centers, we chose Villari's for Rithik because he liked Master Gray right away and

from the first day to till now he never wanted to quit from there. Master Gray's dedication and discipline makes him a perfect guide for students.

All other staff who works there also have same kind of energy and personality which makes the kids feel comfortable and confident.

The classes provide not only the physical education but also increase kid's confidence and improve their behavior too.

The center keeps good communication with parents and have clinics and family nights which keeps them stay connected with all Villari families.

The Villari's annual tournaments and graduations also are awesome. Rithik is a second degree brown belt now and we can't wait to see him getting a Black belt soon.

My Son Advaith recently joined Villaris Karate classes in Newington.
He has been a little on the shy side till now. I see a huge difference after he started taking lessons here.He Has become more daring and physically active .
I had enquired in a couple of other places to enroll my son before I came here.But nothing stood out like this one.

Master Gray is very good with the kids.He communicates very well with them.He teaches them self control and discipline and also enforces self respect.They are learning something more than just Karate here.The kids learn to be more confident.

I am a picky mom and I want the best for my son and Villaris is one of the best choices I have made for him.; so for all picky moms and dads out there I would definitely recommend this place.

They really take the time to get to know each individual child and help them break out of their shell. I recommend Villari's to anyone looking for a well respected studio.
