Villari's Martial Arts Center: Chris Olson, Dave Shirley and Keith Horan. (April 16, 2012)

1) Villari's Martial Arts Centers

When Villari’s owner David Shirley discovers an exceptional martial instructor, he hires them and works them into becoming a full business partner. “We give our instructors a career path,” Villari said. “If they are talented and dedicated enough, they can work their way into ownership. It's a step-by-step process that brings them from employee to partner.” What sets Villari’s apart, in addition to the quality of the instructors, is the wide range of classes for each age group. “When you come here,” Shirley said, “you are training with people like yourself, not mixed in with a lot of other ages or abilities. I'm very proud of the instructors we have throughout the state. It really is unique for people devote their lives to the martial arts.”
