Ninja Garden is a fun, movement based class that uses small obstacles to empower children, cultivating confidence, resilience, and the ability to assess risk (along with many other life skills!) It’s based on team building, creativity, and self-expression, not competition.
Led by American Ninja Warrior, personal trainer, and father Jonathan Angelilli, the class emphasizes self-directed play, developmental movement, and exploration. This unique experience helps children develop essential life skills while having a blast.

What Do Parents and Teachers Think About Ninja Garden?
“The children love the obstacle courses. They are very fond of him and truly look forward to Ninja Garden every week.” Erika Delacruz – Day Care Educator
“Our daughter loves Ninja Garden and especially the clean up! It’s built more confidence in her than gymnastics class and I think that’s really cool.” Morgan Glaser – Parent
“It’s been great for the children, having you set up those obstacles courses.  They learn a lot from them, particularly balancing and feeling proud of their accomplishments.” Christine DeAngelis- Grandmother
“Musa has certainly grown in his confidence and his agility. In the beginning he was a bit apprehensive about it; you should see him now at home with his 7-year old brother.  One of their favorite games is to turn our living room upside down into an obstacle course: messy, but worth it! I am certain that all the parents are as grateful as I am with this gift of talent you’ve brought to them.” Sim Zaman – Mother
“Laura and I are so appreciative of Jonathan’s investment in the kids, it’s really wonderful.  Jonah’s grown so much physically the past year and I think Ninja Garden has pushed him to be much more connected with his own body.  It’s been great to watch “ Sam Kaplan- Father
“I really think the ninja garden is a fantastic experience for the kids! We were able to see the confidence of Charlotte growing every week a little bit more, and I’m sure it was also because of the obstacles activities. We’re very grateful of the time you’re spending with the kids.” Caroline Egasse – Mother
“So much of what Jonathan creates are things I deeply believe children need to learn and thrive, not only for themselves but as part of a community. To see their almost instantaneous joyous responses to the challenges was immensely satisfying.  The kids have benefited in many ways. The trust, communication, and collaboration on the obstacle course gets brought into the classroom.” Susan Stein – Early Childhood Director with 20+ Years Experience
