We new friends!


  • Master Brad has alway been a very good instructor and has a way of reaching children that is effective.

  • Master Brad at Villari's of Somerville is creating a martial arts experience that goes beyond the typical run of the mill karate class. At Villari's, kids and adults alike benefit from a real opportunity to explore a broader understanding of themselves through the mental and physical disciplines of karate, and through an introspective exploration of thoughts, feelings and personal behaviors and how they impact our personal realities. Classes begin with a short meditation, a physical work out with stretching, practice of forms and structure and wind down again with meditation and discussion. Kids are encouraged to celebrate their accomplishments no matter how big or small, and each child/student progresses at their own pace. My two children, 12 and 9 have been taking classes at Villari's for over 4 years now and have grown tremendously over that time. As a parent concerned with raising my children to be good, productive, compassionate people, I have found Villari's to be a wonderful support to what I try to teach at home, and sometimes, I learn a little something from them too! Give them a try - you'll love it!

  • During these challenging times Master Brad has been a tremendous source of consistency and support through out. He was able to shift from an in person model to a fully remote model and has pushed in when kids needed additional support...It has been very positive.

Why Choose Villari's Martial Arts Centers?

Student-Centric Training

At Villari’s in Somerville Massachusetts, our main focus is the personal growth and development of each individual student. Although we do participate in a few tournaments a year, competition is not the top priority in our training.

All too often martial arts schools put their art first and try to fit the student into the art, making the benefits more of a side effect. We mold the art around the student, putting the growth and development front and center! This way you will feel the benefits much more quickly and in a way that is more lasting.


Our expert team of instructors are here for you. With an unparalleled level of personal training and attention, our goal is to build your confidence and skillset.

Qigong (Pronounced and sometimes spelled Chi Kung)– Literally means “Energy Work,” “Qi” meaning energy and “gong” meaning work or achievement. In Qigong classes at Villari’s Martial Arts Centers in Somerville, MA you will learn simple movements and ways of breathing which will help to improve your health and wellbeing. Different exercises are designed to strengthen and improve the functions of different bodily systems. You will improve the health of your heart and lungs, central nervous system, gastrointestinal system, etc. Qigong can also help with anxiety, depression, stress and other mental and emotional ailments. In China, qigong is a medical profession and is used to treat many dis-eases. One of the concepts behind Qigong is energy follows thought. Where you send energy by thinking about it, or perhaps more accurately, picturing it, it goes. The simple movements you will learn will help it along, but the most important part is the intent. It is often done in three phases: purging (releasing stale or negative energy), Tonifying (building energy), and regulating (dispersing it to where in the body it needs to go). Most of these exercises can be done sitting or standing; some are meant to be done lying down. Some of what you will learn will be stand- alone exercises, and some will be routines best done in the order taught. Some of the routines will contain exercises that can be done by themselves. All of them will leave you feeling better that you did when you began.
