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.
