Gyms and Fitness centers are opening next Friday. We didn’t close down because we are not a Fitness center or Gym. We are a Health and Wellness Mind Body and Spirit, Self Defense Martial Arts Immune Building system Studio. There is no category for our center. We are essential and no one is qualified to tell us we aren’t because they don’t know what we teach.
After this week when everyone comes back kids Zoom will be on Tuesday and Thursday 3:15!
I took a Covid 19 Test last week and it came back negative which I knew it would! Why ? Because I said so . It’s called Faith! This is from the last 3 months of not wearing a mask in Public, Not Covering my nose in stores. Not letting them sanitize my shopping carts, or using new pens ,only used ones. Teaching normal as usual. No 6 feet in the dojo , no Masks. If you were worried you can get the virus you will , because it will lower your immune system. By the way I’m 68 years young. I tell you this so you know that everyone that came in didn’t get sick. So when you come back it’s the safest place to be because I said so. I have the protection from above.
I feel positive and negative energy. Every time I came in I felt excited which is telling me there is no danger and keep on doing what you are doing. So Students I welcome you back to countinue where you left off! Remember it’s good for you and work out More!!!
You’re in Kempo,

Hey there, martial arts and fitness fan! 👋
Master Armen Heroian from Fred Villari's Studio of Self Defense here.
Unless you're a martial arts master, you need a solid, fail-proof plan to handle attackers.
The most important thing to remember is that your #1 goal is to get away, and get help.
Don't try to be a hero. Don't try to show off how tough you are.
Just get the heck out of there!
There are 3 main spots that you
want to focus on:
Kick to the groin (as hard and fast as you can)
Punch to the solar plexus (for this one, you'll want some punching experience so you can target effectively)
Kick to the shins (hard and fast)
Those 3 spots cause such pain, that attackers get stunned.
Use this opportunity to run.
If you're interested in becoming more adept at self-defense, then you really need the right instruction. We have the best teachers around. No bones about it.
Try our classes with a no-risk offer. Just click here ⬇️
