What is Ninja?

Ninja training is defined as obstacle courses that challenge and improve strength, endurance, coordination, agility, and balance of children and adults. 

Flight Deck Gymnastics offers our progressive NINJA program utilizing the development of ninja specific skills including: vaulting (jumping over inanimate objects), precision jumping and rolling, tumbling techniques, and bar movements. The skills students learn are then placed together in an obstacle course to challenge students.
