Why Should Your Child Do Ninja Warrior Athletics?

Children 4-8 yrs

Children between the ages of 4 and 8 are in a crucial time in their lives to develop the building blocks of athletic agility. If they are exposed to the fundamentals of athletic movement, including mobility, stability, motor control and athletic skill during these early years they will lay the groundwork for proficiency in sports of all types. The more diverse the movement introduced in this time frame, the bigger the long-term benefit. At the very minimum, you should be introducing your children to a variety of sports, but the beauty of Ninja Warrior Athletics is that they can realize the benefit of the multi sports introduction with 1 class, making your life as a parent with a busy schedule easier to manage.

Children 8 and over

By age 11 for girls and 12 for boys, your child will create thousands of neurological connections. Over the next few years, those connections will be pruned. The connections that are reinforced will be strengthened and those that aren’t will die out. If you have presented multiple types of moments to your budding athlete, they have a greater chance of proficient athleticism and embracing a healthy lifestyle. The diversification of movement that they will experience in Ninja Warrior Athletics will far exceed that of traditional sports and give you as a parent the ability to expand your child’s physical development.

Your life made easier!

Ninja Warrior Athletics is the epitome of diversification of movement. Ninja athletes are trained to be prepared for whatever challenge waits. Whether it is swinging side to side, swinging forward, kipping with one leg or both legs in any direction, or controlling the entire body while balancing on static or moving objects, these adaptive athletes need to be proficient at body control and the knowledge of how to create power and control its direction. Bottom line, with one activity, you can give your young athlete the tools of diversification of athletic movement he/she needs to be better prepared for the challenges of ANY competitive sport.
