NinjaTek

Academy

character, integrity, champions

Ever seen American Ninja Warrior? Honestly the best way to experience it is to watch it but if we had to describe it we would say it's a combination of gymnastics, martial arts, and obstacle course training. We've designed an entire Ninja Warrior Program at GymTek known as NinjaTek Academy. NinjaTek program members will learn how to tumble, and kick, but they also get to flip off the walls, and a bunch more!

The goal is to take the coordination from gymnastics, the discipline for martial arts, and the strength and agility from obstacle course training! It is the perfect sport for kids with loads of energy! The class is fast paced- our coaches' job is to run them until they’re tired- THEN teach them skills!

Training for fundamental body movement, basic skills including Ninja rolling for safety, back flip progressions, basic vaulting, wall and bar progressions, basic kicking and punching technique, development of core strength and speed.

Safety techniques for falling, landing and transitioning are strongly emphasized. Students should be able to perform progressions independently.
