In 2010, Young Ninjas was created by a bunch of dudes with martial arts, sports, and teaching backgrounds. Since then, Young Ninjas has introduced thousands of children to martial arts in a friendly and fun setting.
Rather than creating ninja warriors (not saying it won’t happen) we focus on providing a fun, physical outlet for boys and girls ages 3-9. We do this through martial arts, which has the additional benefit of teaching kids values, social skills, and being overall good citizens…which parents love! Along the way, students learn, gain self-confidence and develop new skills as they block, kick, and strike their way to becoming more focused and better disciplined after each class!
Our team of awesome sensei’s (
OUR MISSION IS TO HELP INCREASE SELF-CONFIDENCE AND ENCOURAGE ACTIVE AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLE HABITS IN KIDS FROM PRESCHOOL TO 3RD GRADE.
We teach martial arts through styles like Karate, Kung Fu, and Tae Kwon Do, rather then a single style. It’s all about repetition of fundamental elements and technique (blocks, stances, kicks, and punches). Young Ninjas techniques are common to most traditional martial arts systems and have been given standardized names and form for our classes.
It’s been proven that children learn best through creative, play based activity, which is why our curriculum is built to be less rigid and more engaging then traditional martial arts systems. Our curriculum was developed with the help of industry experts, to align with early childhood education and physical fitness standards to ensure we maximize benefit.
Unlike some traditional martial arts classes, we have no ranks in classes, but our curriculum still reinforces individual achievement. At the end of each class, students test in a group, and receive their certificate of achievement. During class, students don’t make contact with each other, only with foam pads and other equipment held by their Sensei.
Our instructors are called “Sensei” which is Japanese for teacher. Our instructors come from a variety of backgrounds. From martial artists to actors, from students to athletes. All instructors have a passion for working with kids and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle through exercise and positive reinforcement. All Young Ninjas instructors are background checked, and go through a comprehensive training process, where they will teach “on site” with senior Young Ninjas instructors for up to 8 weeks or more. Only after going through our certification course, will they be promoted to a Sensei. We provide our instructors with ongoing training in and outside the classroom to ensure the highest level of instruction.
