JUMP. LISTEN. FLIP. LEARN. KICK. FOCUS. FLY. CHALLENGE
Lil’ Ninjas is the entry level to the all-new sport discipline inspired by gymnastics, martial arts, obstacle training, and freestyle movement. This of offered for kids 3.5 to 5 years of age.
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.
Ninjas will learn progressions and terminology for skills used in Ninja training including rolling, vaulting, basic large gross motor skills, jumping, falling, swinging, climbing, etc with a goal to develop body coordination, awareness, and listening skills required for Ninja White Level.
Children learn a combination 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 NinjaZone creed. Children advance and learn at their own pace.
The levels of NinjaZone are defined by the headband colors of White, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple.
