Ninja Warrior is Making Kids More Active and it’s Fun

Australian Ninja Warrior was the perfect opportunity for children to see the benefits of hard work. The contestants are true athletes who built their fitness and strength. Most significantly, they worked hard to achieve agility and tenacity.

That is a great message for kids to learn.

Our highly qualified Stunt Park instructors ensure that all safety procedures are followed. The kids will thoroughly enjoy the adventurous experience and build good stamina.

So our advice is for kids to practice as much as they can and have fun while boosting their self-confidence too.

Ninja Warrior Kids Training Features

Everyone who watched Australian Ninja Warrior knows that it requires an incredibly high degree of upper body strength, as well as balance and coordination.

Stunt Park has specific training features for building ninja warrior kids’ skills:

  • Balance
  • Grip strength
  • Upper body strength
  • Obstacle specific training

Balance for Ninja Warrior Kids

Balance Beam

Your balance helps you better prepare for overcoming dynamic obstacles.

We start by getting the kids comfortable walking on a Balance Beam.

Our personal instructor guide the children to improve their Beam Skills.

The best ways our young ninjas can improve on the balance beam is by developing core body strength, body awareness, and confidence.

Building stronger stomach, back and hip muscles will help the kids keep maintain their balance, and control muscle movements.

Balance for Ninja Warrior Kids

Log Rolling

Then it’s time to discover another iconic obstacle, Log Rolling.

A great overall fitness, fun challenge, log rolling builds balance and co-ordination.

The American Council of Exercise’s study found benefits of log rolling Sounds like it’s time to get rolling kids!

Stunt Park instructors are always there for supporting the kids to help them gain confidence in their ability to succeed.

Then it’s work on jumping from one surface to another, forcing rapid balance adjustments.

Balance for Ninja Warrior Kids

Quintuple Steps

Quintuple Steps is where our young ninjas have to jump across six platforms that are angled 45° degrees toward the centre. The platforms are positioned right, left, right, left etc.

Defeating our Quintuple Steps requires both speed and balance.

Our skilled instructors will teach you the techniques to conquer the steps.

Tip 1 stay low on each of the Quintuple Steps: the lower you are on the step than the closer you are to the next step!

Grip Strength for Ninja Warrior Kids

The Ninja Warrior Kids learn to hang from their arms with their hands in a variety of grip positions.

They build grip strength while suspending their body off the ground while holding onto a mixture of horizontal and vertical obstacles.

Fitness experts encourage building grip strength as forearm, wrist, and hand strength is essential to both lifting power and stamina.

Grip Strength for Ninja Warrior Kids

Arm rings

Grip strength is very important for defeating obstacles in Australian Ninja Warrior like the Arm Rings.

The Ninja Warrior Kids’ grip work includes short and explosive activities to build grip strength.

This also improves the young ones’ ability to grasp a variety of objects.

Most significantly, some of our grip work is light, long and slow.

These activities build grip endurance and the ability to hold on the equipment for long periods of time.

Grip Strength for Ninja Warrior Kids

Pole Grasper

The difficult Pole Grasper obstacle has several poles set up.

Using their hands and feet to cross poles, kids have to hang on one, then transition to the next pole.

There are two main techniques. Some little ninjas do it monkey style with a foot and a hand on each pole at a time.

In contrast, others prefer to jump to make the next pole.

Interestingly, pure strength is not necessarily as helpful as being strong relative to body size.

Building endurance for strength challenges, or to improve body awareness for balance obstacles, practice is essential.

When it comes to endurance and having enough energy to move from obstacle to obstacle, the only real solution is train harder.

Upper Body Strength for Ninja Warrior Kids

Ring Swinging

The kids first practice swinging like Tarzan through Rows of Rings.

They get comfortable hanging from one arm, while they swing and reach with their free hand.

Our instructors encourage them to not just swing in a straight line. Challenging our Ninja Warriors to zigzag and even move through different elevations.

Tip:

You must be able to move your own body weight around. Swing at the right time when you’re not fighting against the ring’s momentum, you’re just going with it.

We also drill our ninja warrior kids in overcoming specific obstacles.

Our ninjas get into the swing of things at Stunt Park on features including:

  • Tyre Hanging
  • Mini Tramp
  • Apex Wall
  • Cargo Net, and a wide variety of
  • Balancingand hanging obstacles

At Stunt Park, we are creative in training our future ninja warriors.

We focus on a mix of:

  • Hanging upper body strength, and
  • Lower body balance/coordination skills

Obstacle-Specific Training for Ninja Warrior Kids

Mini Tramp Fundamentals

As seen in Australian Ninja Warrior, a ninja jumps on the trampoline with the wrong angle and they are catapulted out of the competition. The mini-tramp is an essential skill for any ninja warrior to propel themselves higher in the air than with just leg power. If you have gymnastics experience, understanding how to approach a trampoline is quite easy.

Often the most difficult aspect of features using a mini tramp is getting the correct bounce off of the mini-tramp. These features require upward lift, high enough for competitors to get their arms to grab, for example, a cargo net, or both height and distance. Interestingly viewers watching the show saw that many of the participants defeated by these two obstacles failed by simply not getting sufficient bounce.

Our skilled Stunt Park instructors train the young ninjas in mini tramp technique, tips, and drills. They will cover aspects including:

  • Body position
  • Angle of approach
  • Arm position
  • Various obstacle setups
  • Drills to develop strength and muscle memory

Ninja Warrior Kids Encouraging Self Belief

Many fit athletic competitors failed in the first round of Australian Ninja Warrior.

They slip and fell; they lost their grip; they fell short of their jump; their arms gave out from the strain.

Therefore, Stunt Park instructors encourage the kids to focus on the mental training needed to prepare for competition.

It is so important for our Ninja Warrior Kids to believe that they can conquer an obstacle and make it all the way to the end of the course.

Make Sure Ninja Warrior Kids Have Fun

Preparing yourself physically with training and workouts is crucial.

Similarly, preparing yourself mentally is equally significant. We show you how it helps to break your goal down into small steps instead of trying to conquer it as a whole.

Isaac Caldiero believes his mental strength gave him an advantage in winning America’s first ever Ninja Warrior competition. His advice is to stay motivated to work out hard, stay focused and optimistic, and be open to help and support when you need it. Most importantly, make sure you’re having fun!
