The Lil’ Ninjas class is the entry level to this all-new sport discipline inspired by gymnastics, martial arts, obstacle training, and freestyle movement.
Class goals: Listening skills, confidence, trying new things, working through frustration, and manners. We do all this through a strategic mix of skills and progressions.
White 1: ages 5-7
White 2: ages 7-11
Students earn combinations of flips, rolls, jumps, and kicks. Strength and agility are tested through obstacle courses and various training techniques.
A progressive level system evaluates and advances children in their skill and knowledge of core values as described in the Ninja Zone creed. Children advance and learn at their own pace.
Once ninjas complete their Mission and pass the White level, they advance to the Yellow class.
In this level, ninjas increase the difficulty level of skills and progressions, and also learn to recite the Ninja creed.
Time to push yourself to the limit!
Ninja Zone's Green level is the toughest yet! We will challenge your ninjas to go beyond the Yellow skills to see just how fast, strong, and smooth they can be. No obstacle is too big for these ninjas!
Coming soon: Blue!
Green students will have the opportunity to test into Blue.
