Ninja Training

Rock climbing, yoga, fitness equipment….and now Ninja Training?! That’s right, AZR has a Ninja Training rig upstairs in the fitness area! Don’t know your Ring Toss from your Salmon Ladder? Come to a class Monday through Thursday and now Saturday to learn the techniques and run challenging courses. Along with individual ninja coaching we also have programs for parties or larger groups.  Many of the local Ninjas who have appeared on NBC’s hit Show American Ninja Warrior train and are coached at AZ on the Rocks.

NINJA TRAINING

Whether you are a beginner wanting to learn the best techniques, or a seasoned veteran wanting to perform better, we have something for you. We offer training programs for kids and adults of all ages and ability levels.

Level I is intended for the beginners, while Level II is for more advanced Ninjas. You must be able to complete a set course or be approved by one of the instructors to participate in a Level II class.

Progressing from Level I to Level II

In order to progress from Level I to Level II, a student would normally be expected to complete an obstacle course consisting of six obstacles from the following list, with no more than one obstacle failed:

  • Quintuple Steps or Balance Spheres
  • Rope Swing
  • Trapeze Bars
  • Balance Beam
  • Monkey Bars
  • Ring Toss
  • Rings
  • Fixed Pegs

Alternatively, the instructors may move a student from Level I to Level II, based on overall sustained performance in class.

Level III is for the most advanced Ninjas, who are able to complete multiple courses of complex obstacles without difficulty. Participation in the Level III class is recommended only with the approval of the head instructor (Steve Kimpton).

FUTURE NINJAS

Aimed at kids 6-9 years old who want to learn the basics of Ninja training. With scaled-down obstacles aimed at improving strength, balance and agility, this class will prepare them for the day when they are ready to move to Level I.
