We have had a very 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.
I train here and really, really enjoy it. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to pick up marital arts. Mr. Markiv really cares about his classes and students. He gives it everything he has. Not only is he a professional, but he also loves his job and it shows. The classes have a real community. People in the classes are friendly and helpful. I feel very welcome when I attend classes. The training is also very practical. It teaches kids how to live like a martial artist, and can one day really help them.
The first few weeks I was nervous and skeptical, my son could barely stand still, my daughter seemed confused but eager. We kept at it. A few months went by and I began to see a maturity that time alone could not have offered. My son was able to sit still longer, my daughter more determined and focused than ever. This "discipline", these skills, are now being carried into the school with them. The improvement I see is life changing and worth every moment of my time!
Both of my children took lessons here for two years. Though they were very young at the time the staff was very attentive and focused not only on the martial arts but also the kids school work and respect.
