Bill Roeder is the owner and chief instructor of Waverly Martial Arts, along with his son Bobby and his daughter Jackie. They have been training together in Martial Arts as a family for over 25 years.

Bill started his Martial Arts training early back in 1972 in Taekwondo. After training for only about a year he was forced to stop do to circumstances beyond his control. But he was hooked and knew he would return to his training, making it his life's goal to receive his black belt.

It wouldn't be until 18 years later in 1990 that it finally happened! On a whim he had signed up his two sons Billy and Bobby for lessons at a local Martial Arts school and it wasn't long until his desire to train crept back in. He joined with his youngest child, his daughter Jackie. Together they started training under Master Nick Adler in Isshinryu Karate and have competed in many competitions throughout the country.

Little did they know, Martial Arts would lead them into a family business. As an instructor and a parent, Martial Arts has always been a key element in keeping his family connected. It has been a common ground for all of them to train, play and talk about a common interest that they all shared. They are committed to further their knowledge and bring the best instruction in Self Protection and Character Development training to the community.

On January 31, 2016 Bill was promoted to 7th degree black belt along with his son Bobby 6th degree black belt and his daughter Jackie 4th degree black belt.

Kyoshi Bill Roeder is ranked as a 7th Degree Black Belt and has been teaching for over 23 years.

Renshi Bobby Roeder is ranked as a 6th Degree Black belt and has been teaching for just over 22 years.

Sensei Jackie Roeder is ranked as a 4th Degree Black Belt and has been teaching for over 20 years.
