When you first heard of a ninja warrior course for kids, you may have thought it was a cute idea but not an enriching one. It’s fun to climb things and move like a ninja, but is it really an experience your kid needs to have? In a time where kids are overscheduled, and there is so much going on in a family’s life, why make time for a fun obstacle course? There are plenty of reasons to enjoy a ninja course.
1. Character Building
Ninja obstacle courses help build more than just muscle. We believe that all taekwondo-related activities, including our obstacle courses, should be grounded in our values. Those include self-discipline, respect, self-control, sportsmanship, and much more. Through the ninja course, your child will be challenged mentally as well as physically, adding on another experience that helps them grow up to be a person who shares your values. There are no participation trophies here, but there also isn’t a crushing level of challenge. All challenges should be moderated to support your child’s growth.
2. Physical Development
A ninja obstacle course is an ideal physical challenge. Unlike so many other sports, it builds strength throughout the whole body. Arms, legs, and core, nothing is neglected. And all challenges are balanced between the left and right sides. This is great for kids who are pursuing other sports and need well-balanced muscles and coordination throughout their bodies. Also, regardless of age, your child will see improvements in cardiovascular health, balance, flexibility, coordination, and so much more. If you think that physical development is important for your child, a ninja course is a fun way to supplement it.
3. Stress Relief, Emotional Health
Ninja obstacle courses are also great for stress relief and the emotional health of your child. Exercise is great stress relief. Social contact outside of school is also important. Your child will get social support through the course from their peers, which also helps build a supportive, teamwork-based environment for your child and their peers.
