My name is Charlene Whipkey. I was born in Reykjavik, Iceland but grew up in the little town of Oak Harbor Ohio. I met my husband Gary in 2006 while attending Hocking College. We have two great kids, Payton who is 10 and involved in our competitive cheer program since the age of 2 and Gary, who started off in our ninja class and is currently in football, wrestling, and baseball. My family and I enjoy the outdoors. We love to hunt, fish ,hike and vacation together.
- When I was little I was involved in competitive gymnastics, softball, diving and showed horses. I worked for a youth program and was a lifeguard at a country club for 6 years – this is where my love of children began. I have taught preschool gymnastics, Beginner gymnastics, tumbling and Ninja for 10 years.
- Level 1 & 2 ninja certified from the Ninja Sports International (NSI) which is a global leader in professional development for Ninja Sports
- CPR/First Aid/AED
- Sensory Inclusive training
- Masters in Birthday Parties from Birthday University.
I love teaching Ninjas because I love to see the kids learn new skills and work hard. I also love this program because we are turning energy into ambition.
Can’t wait to meet your ninja and hae than just skills, it teaches them respect, kindness and encourage others. ve a blast with them.
