Young Ninjas was created by a bunch of dudes with martial arts, sports, and teaching backgrounds. Since 2010, Young Ninjas has introduced thousands of children to martial arts in a friendly and fun setting. OUR MISSION IS TO HELP INCREASE SELF-CONFIDENCE AND ENCOURAGE ACTIVE AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLE HABITS IN KIDS FROM PRESCHOOL – 3RD GRADE. Rather then 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 dig! 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 (KIYAH!) get children excited about martial arts through our age-appropriate, non-contact, and engaging curriculum. Sensei’s show up each week with all necessary materials to run awesome martial arts classes at your location. Our instructors all have a passion for working with children, are trained to teach with our curriculum, and are certified by Young Ninjas.
NO FIXED STYLE – Karate, Kung Fu, and Tae Kwon Do
Multiple martial arts styles are introduced rather than a single style – It’s all about repetition of fundamental elements and technique. (blocks, stances, kicks, and punches) Young Ninjas USA techniques are common to most traditional martial arts systems and have been given standardized names and form.
CURRICLUM – Super fun!
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. Kids are more motivated to participate and develop many skills, while having fun. Our drills and games are martial arts or sports focused, designed to hide repetition, in order to maximize enjoyment for each child. Our curriculum was developed with the help of industry experts, to align with early childhood education and physical fitness standards. Did you know? Play based learning will Increase retention and accelerate learning.
Unlike some traditional martial arts classes, we have no ranks in classes, but our curriculum still reinforces individual achievement. Our curriculum rotates each session with new animal modules and a new color headband that can be earned. 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, target shields and other equipment held by their Sensei.
