When the Villari’s studio opened 30 years ago, karate and the martial arts were such little-known sports that Master David Boise found it difficult to find a landlord who would rent him space for his studio. Boise, a ninth-degree black belt, founded the Villari’s Self Defense Center of Plattsburgh in 1986. Boise, along with his wife Leisa and their assistant instructors, run a variety of courses for clients age 4 and older.
