    Ninja-Warrior LogoSumter Ninja Warriors Ninja Warrior’s go beyond simply performing physical movement or tasks.  Physical obstacles require and cultivate self-trust, self-expression and understanding of the possibilities.  These “obstacles” are metaphors for understanding one’s own strengths and weaknesses.  Learning how to overcome obstacles is something everyone faces.  Having success, pushing past limitations and trusting yourself is a daily emotional and mental exercise when engaged in Ninja Warrior class.

    Level placement and testing:  In each level, students advance based on progression of skills they achieve throughout the session. Our ninja program curriculum focuses on improving/mastering specific “challenges”, “obstacle courses,” strength, speed, agility and the students listening skills. In addition to these requirements, classes are designed to continually develop students discipline, coordination & flexibility; as they learn to maneuver the courses & “challenges” each week throughout the session.

    Earning your stripes: Within each ninja level (White-1, Yellow-2, Green-3, Blue-4, Red-5, Black-6) the students will progress through the 3 sub levels by earning a “stripe” in recognition of progress & achievement. The 1st stripe (level of achievement) they will understand all of the course/obstacle work for the Level and the terminology needed to perform/practice the “movements” for each challenge in the course. The 2nd stripe of achievement is at their “Level” the students meet certain strength, speed and agility criteria and can complete most of the course work expected for their level. When they reach the 3rd stripe, they have mastered all challenges, completed the “courses” in the required time, met the flexibility, strength/agility requirements & know the terminology for each maneuver, skill & action they are training. With that success- they advance to the NEXT NINJA WARRIOR LEVEL!
