Everyone wants to be a ninja warrior like on NBC’s popular television show, American Ninja Warrior. Besides being the most fun that kids can have exercising, New York City Ninja Academy promotes discipline, focus, and behavioral development. The sport of ninja warrior training is for any skill level, and fosters kids’ growth and improvement, while they’re having the time of their lives. 

A 10-week progressive program teaches future ninjas how to overcome ninja warrior obstacles one by one. Classes are age-based (6-13), once per week for one hour after school or on weekends. The Winter Semester begins November 28th and runs through February 19th. Lessons are taught by certified ninja coaches, some of whom have been featured on American Ninja Warrior and American Ninja Warrior Junior

Ninjas analyze, approach, and conquer obstacles that mimic the movement and strategy of obstacles on the show. They’ll learn new skills and techniques for climbing, swinging, agility, balance, and strength. Kids gain confidence as they master each obstacle, increase their skill level, and become ready to take on the next progression. There is no better feeling than the ultimate thrill of hitting the buzzer at the top of the iconic Warped Wall after running a course, complete with sound effects and lights!

New York City Ninja Academy also hosts exciting and memorable birthday parties. A full 90 minutes is spent on the gym floor in an action-packed event for maximum fun, and no down time, plus you have the entire facility to yourself, no sharing with other families! Kids learn about 6 or 7 different ninja warrior obstacles, and then put it all together and run the entire obstacle course, complete with sound effects, lights, and the thrill of hitting the buzzer at the top of the Warped Wall! Supervised open training takes place while other kids run their courses. Maximum number of kids is 20, ages 6+. New York City Ninja Academy parties are unique in that they waste no time with pizza and cake. The facility allows no food (you can offer to-go cupcakes or cakes-in-a-jar, or pair the outing with one of many nearby restaurants), just highly organized activities for maximum fun.

Recent reviews of New York City Ninja Academy:

“This place is awesome. My son is in his second season and I've definitely seen progress. It's given him the confidence to try other sports and boosted his overall fitness. He absolutely loves it. The instructors are very patient and encouraging, but they keep the kids focused and safely under control.  The gym is run like great business - friendly, professional, clean - and they prioritize safety.” - Nicole W

“Instructors are off the charts amazing. My daughter was nervous for her first class, within ten minutes they had her scaling ramps and jumping through hoops like a pro. We'll definitely be signing up for a semester.” - Peter

“Bar none, this is simply the most terrific place in Manhattan. The gym itself is huge and inviting with every kind of obstacle imaginable. But it’s the community of coaches and staff the owner has created that makes the gym so outstanding. These coaches love to teach; they welcome every skill level; and they truly care for their students. I’ve never seen anything like it (and I think I’ve taken my kids to every class in town).” - Emma
