Grandmaster Fredrick J. Villari


Over 10,000 Black Belts and 15 million students after

its conception Fred Villaris Studios 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. The name Fred Villari and Shaolin Kempo Karate is

synonymous with East Coast Kempo. In 1995, annual Villari national tournament,

held at the World Trade Center (Boston), drew 10,000 spectators to watch 5,000

participants. Growing up Fred Villari studied martial arts with

his father. Later he was exposed to and studied several martial arts styles.

During this period he trained under Nick Cerio that was a student of

Professor William K.S. Chow. Fred Villaris approach to Kempo was to maintain the

style as he learned it through Nick Cerio and that is how it is presented in

the Fred Villari System today. Fred Villari realized, because of his varied wealth of experience

and his dedication in seeking the ultimate fighting system, that each method offered something

unique, and each also had its glaring weaknesses that could make a fighter vulnerable. Grandmaster Fred

Villari concluded that there really were only four ways of fighting.
