“Shaolin Kempo Karate” was founded by Grandmaster Frederick J. Villari. In the last three decades, his fighting system has become widely recognized and respected. His art traces its origin back over a thousand years to the Shaolin Temple of China. Many of the basic methods are still used in his schools today. The present form has become famous because of its very effective “Four Ways of Fighting“.
Some evolutionary changes were necessary due to modern culture and the technological development of many different types of weapons. People today are bigger, stronger and more knowledgeable about weapons and methods of combat, therefore, movements had to be changed and updated. Grandmaster Villari developed a fighting system that combines the “Four Ways of Fighting” into one. Today his system has spread nationally and internationally and has a permanent record in the annals of martial arts history.
Note: Grandmaster Vilari is the founder of our style of fighting, and is not an instructor at our dojo.
