Birthday Parties

What’s better than a Ninja Warrior birthday party? Kids learn several of their favorite fun ninja warrior obstacles, and then they run a course with lights, sound effects, and the ultimate thrill of hitting the buzzer at the top of the Warped Wall! Our pro ninja coaching staff will ensure everyone’s safety for the best experience. Kids will have the time of their lives!

You’ve seen it on TV. Now you’re curious.

Why is ninja training so great?

Besides being the most fun you can have exercising, discipline, focus, and behavioral development are emphasized at New York Ninja Academy to foster kids’ growth and self-improvement. Coordination and confidence increases with skill level. For adults, not only is ninja warrior training a thrilling physical challenge at all skills levels, it’s also a mental challenge, and an innovative approach to setting, achieving, and surpassing personal goals, beyond what you do at a gym. Obstacles are like those on the TV show, and they regularly rotate, so you’ll be challenged in new ways every time you visit.

My son competes in the World Ninja League and NYC Ninja Academy is one of THE BEST gyms on the circuit! The gym, equipment, and amazing staff make this a favorite location to visit and definitely a highlight of our season!! If you haven’t been there you should check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

I love this place! I live close by so it kind of feels like a second home to me. Thank you guys for the good vibes and awesome obstacle courses. I highly recommend training here.

Bryan J.

The customer service is INCREDIBLE! Both via email with reservations and reschedulings, and the coaches are so nice! Great place to have a birthday party, even for adults!

James G.

This was a blast! My kids took part in an introductory Drop In class and loved it! Instructors were attentive, knowledgeable, and patient. Stressing safety and inclusion, my kids came away from this feeling empowered, and begging to come back.

Chris L.

Fun and engaging for kids and adults! Warped walls, balance obstacles, and a million other challenging stations to conquer! Like nothing else in the city!

As if by magic, the owner has found a talented/kind group of coaches and staff. Their management of the kiddos during classes is an astonishing mix of teaching through encouragement, support and persistence. They never let a kid get discouraged – in fact, making sure every kid walks out of class with their head held high seems to be the priority.

Debra F.

We love this place. The coaches are fantastic. My kid feels challenged and has learned new skills he can use both inside and out of the gym.

Marlena B.

We celebrated my daughter’s 10th birthday at NY Ninja Academy. My 12 year old son and his friend joined in the party. Everyone had a wonderful time. The staff was great with the kids. On the way home the 6 kids I had in the car could not stop talking about the instructors and how much fun they had. Highly recommend.

Kim K.

Wow! By far the best birthday experience my 3 sons ever had. Our instructors were amazing teaching 10 energetic boys! We will definitely be signing up for classes. Great facility too!

Sarah U.

My child is growing in confidence and is working on his strength and stamina in a fun, motivating and social atmosphere!

Paula D.

My 16 year old son loves every moment he spends at NYC Ninja. He enjoys all the people and staff. It’s like a family gathering and not like a gym.

Francine E.

My wife and I visited as drop-ins, and our coach was excellent at explaining the obstacles, giving feedback, and progressions for obstacles we weren’t able to complete. This was NOT an easy course but was fun and challenging. I never realized how scared I’d be of trying the warped wall! Some obstacles are permanent and some rotate out. We don’t live in this area, we were visiting, but we will look forward to returning here!!!

Rick P.

Great gym! Came all the way from Ohio and was worth every mile traveled!

Sean E.

A great place for kids. They balance fun, discipline, mental and physical strength. They teach them to use skill, intelligence and effort to overcome challenges. And while it is about individual achievement, you are not competing with others but only yourself and what you are personally capable of achieving. Everyone is in it together and striving towards the same goals. The various instructors that I have met have been excellent with the children – combining fun, learning, implementing rules, ensuring fairness and being patience while maintaining control.

Tony A.

These guys are amazing with kids… patient and caring while being fun and safe all at the same time! Highly recommend.
