Business Overview

Our Story

Young Ninjas was created by a bunch of dudes with martial arts, fitness, and education backgrounds, to encourage children to move, play, and challenge themselves. Through age-appropriate and play based curriculum, our objective is to make a positive impact on each child, by introducing them to martial arts in a creative, fun, and non-competitive setting.

Along the way, students will learn new skills and valuable life lessons through positive reinforcement, instilling children with self-confidence. We make fitness fun by teaching martial arts, one of the world’s oldest and most popular sports, and what better way to do that then by becoming a ninja. C’mon, how cool
