What is NinjaZone? That's what we wanted to know - so we had the CEO of NinjaZone Casey Wright in our studio to discuss her NinjaZone sport has taken over the country.
NinjaZone is part gymnastics, obstacle course training, parkour, martial arts, and dance to create one unique sport for kids ages 3-11. The goal of the sport is to move through an environment or a series of obstacles with fluidity prowess and stealth.
This is done by using a combination of flips, jumps, rolls, spins, and kicks - children bring out their inner-ninja while getting a lot of great exercise and athletic skills that can be learned for life.
Coming up this year is the inaugural year for the Ninja Games. Regional competitions will be held in Sacramento, Cedar Rapids, and Chicago with nationals being held in Indianapolis on August 5, 2017.
Casey and her team has done an amazing job building this program and sport. They have already amassed more than 240 locations in just THREE years! Truly amazing and we were very excited to learn more about NinjaZone!
