USA Ninja Challenge Obstacles

  • Running up ramp

There are six basic categories of Ninja obstacles:

These categories were developed to incorporate all of the basic movements and use all of the muscle groups of the human body.

Jumping

Jumping

Ninja jumping includes box jumps, long jump, jumping over or onto obstacles, jumping from platform to platform and even from platforms to ropes and cargo nets!

Climbing

Climbing

Kids involved in Ninja get to climb ropes, cargo nets, peg boards and rock walls.

Swinging

Swinging

Swing sets have become a bit boring, so we've upped the game to swinging on gymnastics rings, ropes, hanging ladders, hanging nun chucks and cannon balls!

Traversing

Traversing

There are a lot of things to traverse across in a Ninja gym:  cargo nets, spotting blocks, rock walls, peg boards, ledges and chimney walls to name a few!

Balancing

Balancing

One of our top priorities is to develop well-balanced ninjas. These training activities include balance beams, slack lines and rolling barrels!

Floor skills

Floor Skills

This category includes running, block pushing, army crawl and vaulting.  In addition to these floor skills, Ninjas also learn gymnastics tumbling skills so they can look extremely cool while attacking obstacles!
