Little Ninjas classes are a perfect way to get developmentally necessary social interaction that's not just craziness at a park with random strangers. Our supportive, structured environment is just what families need!
It's important young children build positive socialization skills. These aren't just with their peers, but also authority figures other than parents and guardians. Learning to interact with others is extremely important for the journeys they'll soon take at school and elsewhere.
Increased balance, awareness and precision turn your little one into a real life ninja (and they'll love it). They'll start to build the foundations of physical traits like strength and flexibility that will help set them on a healthy path for life!
Little Ninjas gives kids the building blocks for laser-like focus later in life. They'll learn to pay attention to the task at hand, step by step.
Children need a safe, structured place to learn to overcome obstacles in order to build grit and determination. At NEXTStep Martial Arts, they'll have a blast doing it!
Confidence isn't just a buzzword, it's what we do. Your child will build deep, unshakeable confidence that they'll take everywhere they go.
Parents love Little Ninjas because they get to see their children in a class where they can see fundamental changes right before their eyes. It's more than just a fun activity - It's quality time, and that matters.
Little Ninjas class times were designed by parents for parents - you're almost guaranteed to find a time that works for your families needs.
Your child will be surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals they are. They'll build friendships and be supported in their journey.
There's literally no better place for your child to learn life skills like Persistence, Determination and Empathy. They'll listen and learn from role-model instructors, and they'll love it!
It's more than amazing ninja moves - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical traits that will remain with and benefit your child for the rest of their lives.
Kids need activities that are engaging and awesome. For kids this age, those activities have to not just be accessible, but specifically designed with their developmental stages in mind Little Ninjas is exactly what they need- here's why:
As younger children grow, their world expands, but so do their rules. At NEXTStep Martial Arts, the class is so fun, children don't mind learning new rules - because they're also learning new ninja moves!
Games and activities that teach while having fun are essential for toddlers. You’ll see your child have fun while completing physical challenges that engage their mind and encourage teamwork.

Of American children are obese or are at risk for obesity

Lead sedentary lives
Almost half of Adults are sedentary
More and more it seems inevitable that as kids grow into adults, they slow down and become unhealthy. It doesn't have to be this way, but we have to create healthy movements habits before it's too late. It's never too early to start!
Our goals for our Little Ninjas students are the same as your goals as a parent. Confidence, Self-Esteem, and Healthy Habits for life!
Having a solid foundation of positivity in your child's life is invaluable. You can't control their experiences everywhere, nor would you want to. But at NEXTStep Martial Arts, you'll know they'll always be good ones.
At NEXTStep Martial Arts, it doesn't matter if your child isn't the best kid on the team; they'll never ride the bench. They'll always know they're valued members of class, and part of the team, each and every day.
