What is NINJAgility? It’s more than ninja. Simply put, the program is as unique as its name.
NINJAgility is an exceptional sport on its own or as a crossover sport due to the complexity of the actions and movements it teaches. It’s an excellent way for any athlete to hone their skillset and maximize their performance — become faster, and upper body and core strength, improve multi-directional movement and explosiveness while increasing flexibility.
Marlene and Kevin Warr, local owners of Momentum Athletic Center, created NINJAgility because they felt that there was something missing in the community. There are limited options if a child doesn’t like team sports, martial arts, dance, or gymnastics. And the same is true for those with a deep love of their team sport but want a way to cross-train during their offseason.
“We needed something special," explains Kevin. "As a middle school basketball coach for over a decade, I saw a need in our community that wasn’t being met. We invested in ninja equipment and coaches with a broad range of expertise in youth sports like basketball, soccer, gymnastics, and several disciplines in martial arts and ninja. In the future, we plan to offer sport-specific training and competitive ninja teams for those kids looking to level up in their sport.”
NINJAgility is an excellent option for kids who need a recreational program that is different than the norm and is both mentally and physically challenging. Kids develop similar self-discipline and tactical techniques as they would in a traditional martial art setting while navigating obstacle courses, climbing the warped wall, and developing multi-directional movements.
Momentum Athletic Center opened its dedicated cheer and ninja facility last year in their second location in Parker. NINJAgility classes are offered to ages 4 to 15 at various levels. Since their concept of NINJAgility began, the sport of “Ninja” has evolved greatly throughout the U.S. and the Warrs expect that “NINJAgility” will also continue to evolve with the needs of their athletes.
Momentum’s philosophy is that youth sports should center around developing the whole child — as an athlete and as a person. Some children desire a more competitive environment while others want a recreational outlet. Momentum believes that each child should be met at their level and that programs should evolve with the needs of the community and its athletes.
