This class is skill based, fast paced, and geared just for kids on energy overload! Our Ninja training program combines military style obstacle courses to develop strength and speed, gymnastics tumbling, and “ninja” style moves just like what you would see in a video game or in movies! The sport of Ninja is…. “To move uninterrupted through an environment or series of obstacles with fluidity, prowess, and strength. To use combinations of skillful spins, rolls, flips, jumps, and kicks to elude and opponent.” Our skill curriculum is comprised of a clever combination of gymnastics, martial arts, break dancing, and cross training. Beyond skill our curriculum teaches:

  • Confidence
  • Being part of a group
  • Impulse Control
  • Discipline
