Our 2011-2012 Program Offerings: Update

The school year is more than upon us—tomorrow is the first of September, and I’m hoping many of our former students and prospective students will check our website for information on this year’s programs.

In brief, here’s what we have to offer as of now:

Metamora High School students will have practices Tues, Wed, and Thu after school. There will be a non-obligating informational meeting and first trial class for new students interested in our program on Thursday September 8th from 3:30-4:30. Meet in the commons and wear comfortable clothes.

For grade school age students and adults in our community, we are offering weekly classes at Riverview Grade School on Wednesdays in the gym from 6:30-7:30. If you are interested in joining or resuming your training, just show up! We’ll have more information for you at that time.

UPDATE: Our program at Germantown is resuming Thursday Sept 15 from 6-7 p.m.

Who is teaching what?

At the high school, Deshi Thomas is teaching on Tuesdays (class supervised by Mrs. Deters), on Wednesdays Coach Unger is leading the workout, and Sensei Chianakas, Sensei Hawkey, and Deshi Adam Bockler are teaching on Thursdays. Assisting as available are Joshu Adair and Joshu Andy.

At Riverview, Joshu Adair Rodriguez is our black belt lead instructor, assisted by Robert Unger (also our adult supervisor), Caitlan Rohman, and Greg Martin.

At Germantown, Deshi Adam Ulbricht, a 2nd degree black belt, will lead the classes. Assistants still TBA.

How much does it cost?

Training at Riverview Grade School costs only $7 per class with a semester fee of $20 (payable two times a year). It’s the best deal in town, for sure!

Training at Metamora High is free and is sponsored by the high school. You pay only for your uniform and promotions.

If you have questions, you may contact Sensei Joe Chianakas at
