About Our School

The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of
Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.

Hi and welcome!

Want to take control of your life but have been unsure of how to do that? Perhaps you're looking for a new outlet for your kids to work off some of that extra energy, while learning and growing, in a positive and motivating environment.

Maybe you just want to do something amazing, fun, and exciting for yourself because you ARE worth it.

Our Covina Martial Arts school can certainly help you with all of those things.

At first glance, most people think Martial Arts is a way to get fit and learn self-defense...which is true...but...

Martial arts is so much more than just kicks and punches! Can you imagine how amazing your life will be with enhanced physical fitness, improved mental focus and clearer thinking, lightning fast reflexes, and a healthier body to take you well into your golden years?

Luckily, we don’t have to imagine it because we see these things in action. Every. Single. Day.

Our students continuously tell us how Martial Arts enriches their lives in ways most people are not prepared for. Seriously. And it will do the same for you.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While you can see lean muscle forming, and feel the effects of cardio training within the first week, the benefits below are felt on a deeply personal level. And with some phenomenal (positive!) side effects.

Just by reading this far, you have proven that you are ready to take a chance on yourself, leap feet first into the action-packed world of Martial Arts, and live a truly amazing life!

Change can be scary but we’ll be there the entire time to guide you and support you. You CAN have it all, and we can’t wait to be there with you to hear all about it.

Here are a few life-changing benefits you can expect…

#1 Tremendous Confidence

Martial arts is tough. Whether you just want to stay physically fit or you’re in it to win it and become one of the world’s leaders in martial arts, doing something new is challenging both physically and mentally.

But...as you push yourself and let your instructors guide and cheer you on, you’ll get a HUGE boost in confidence! You’ll also get in amazing shape and feel good about yourself and body. Know what that means? Even more confidence... and happiness!

You’ll be able to smile big and feel proud as you achieve things you once thought impossible. Even if that means completing one single push up, perfecting a difficult new technique, or simply watching your kids progress through their training.

#2 Single Pointed Focus

Focus your mind grasshopper... as you listen intently and concentrate on what your instructor tells you, then performing the techniques, you’ll improve your ability to focus and absolutely crush your martial arts and fitness goals. 

The cool thing is that this intense concentration naturally pours into other areas of your life too. 

Studies have shown that just a half hour of physical fitness improves focus, increases problem solving ability, and boosts memory in both kids and adults. 

#3 Let’s Get Physical

Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive reinforcement and high fives instead of military style yelling and endless hours on a treadmill.

This means that each of our classes is loaded with challenging, fun exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic striking, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and movements that mimic how the human body should move are our focus.

Don’t worry if you feel as though you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from total beginner to pro athlete. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of our workouts!

#4 We Are Family

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found martial arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt like social clubs weren’t for them. 

But those same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in class! We provide a safe, non-intimidating environment where we all want each other to succeed. There are no bullies or students trying to one up each other on my watch. 

You’ll get nothing but a lot of support and friendship from our members and instructors. It’s easy to make new friends here and, as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that promotes friendship, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fulfillment after every class is more than you can imagine. 

#5 You'll Have FUN!

You’ll have an absolute blast in class! Sure, sometimes things will be tough and training can get intense. But we like to break up the intense focus and concentration with lots of laughs, encouragement, and light-hearted humor.

Laughing and smiles are part of every class!

Make your fitness dreams come true while learning how to protect yourself and your family.

We’re so dedicated to community improvement and safety that we’re offering a limited time 100% money back guarantee on all web specials. So, if we’re not a good fit for you, no worries. But chances are you’ll love it here. If you’re comfortable signing up over the internet, we highly encourage it. If not, don't hesitate to give us a call: (626) 859-5741

Looking forward to meeting you in person!

The Instructors

Tammy Pino – Co-owner of Villatoro Bushido Martial Arts, started training in the Martials Arts in 2009. Her training began after watching her two daughters train and gain confidence and focus through their training. The confidence and self-empowerment that she and her daughters gained were something she wanted to share with more people. 

Tammy and her business partner, Chico Villatoro, opened Villatoro Bushido Martial Arts in September 2012, with a focus on a family-style karate studio that offers martial arts training and fitness classes to their members.

Tammy also brings her love of nutrition and overall health and well-being to the studio. She is a Registered Dietitian and holds a Master’s Degree in Public Health Nutrition.

Chico Villatoro – Co-owner of Villatoro Bushido Martial Arts, started training at 4 years old in American Style Karate. Chico fell in love with teaching the Martial Arts when he was 16 years old.

He competed in sports competition from 1981 until 1999 and currently holds a 5th degree black belt in American Style Karate.

Chico has placed a focus on helping students become the best they can be by using the Martial Arts to teach them qualities like respect, discipline and having strong self-esteem. 

In 2002, training under Mr. Steve Fisher, Chico had the unique opportunity to prepare and train with Royce Gracie for a fight in Japan with Kazushi Sakuraba. 

The respect and passion that both Chico and Tammy feel for the Martial Arts has shaped a studio that is dedicated to instilling qualities in their students that help them conquer everyday challenges with an “I can” attitude… teaching you how to win in life.
