The program teaches athletic movement fundamentals in a way that opens up the world of adventure sport, and also provides a great base for any other physical activity.
The aim of Ninja Squad is to balance fun, and skills progression and development, in a social and inclusive environment. The program develops and harnesses balance, strength, coordination and agility through the lens of freestyle sport.
The disciplines of Parkour, Freerunning and Adventure Racing are based on methods of physical training that develop the ability to overcome obstacles, physical and mental, using only the natural movements of the human body. Since they first emerged in the 1980s, these movement forms have grown rapidly in popularity and credibility, becoming legitimate sports in their own right.
In structured one-hour classes, Ninja Squad participants will be taken on a developmental journey – progressing from ground skills through to aerial techniques.
Accredited coaches will guide participants through circuits of multiple challenges which develop creative ways of moving, rolling, balancing, flipping, vaulting, swinging and landing safely.
The program caters for beginner to advanced and is instructed in three streams:
● Mastering the fundamentals
● Developing speed and precision of movement
● Adding creative flair and self-expression to navigating obstacles
● Ninja Squad is available at Glen Iris, Tingalpa, Gold Coast, Cannington and Adelaide
● Classes are one hour in duration and have a maximum of 6 participants
● The program is for ages 8 +
● The program costs $27 per week, with a 10 week term costing $270
● Classes run between 4pm and 7pm Monday – Friday
THE WORLD OF SPORT & PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IS CHANGING!
The world of action-adventure sport and ‘freestyle’ was once the domain of a handful of elite athletes but is now very much in the mainstream. Parkour will be a feature at the next Olympic games in 2020, and ‘freestyle movement’ is finding its way into mainstream sport, from gymnastics to surfing.
The Ninja Warrior TV phenomenon and adventure races such as Spartan and Tough Mudder are helping grow the popularity and accessibility of these exciting ways of moving and living.
