Skills Update

Jumping, Balancing, and Strength are the keys to Ninja growth.

We love tracking progress in our program and encourage students to always strive for their personal best! You can follow along with your child's accomplishments at AltiusNinja.com.

We test twelve skills throughout the year, and we've looked at four of those already. here is what they are and a little more about what we've been up to!

Angle Steps

Speed and balance are the keys to mastering these four black and purple mats. Students must run or jump as fast as they can to cross them down and back again. Oh, and that flat side that looks easy to stand on? They can't step on it! They receive a time if they complete the ten down and back jumps. Otherwise, their score is how many jumps they completed before touching the dreaded lava floor.

Box Jumps

How high can you go? Box Jumps test a student's ability to jump from two feet and then land on two feet onto a raised mat. No hands allowed!

Long Jumps

This skill tests how far a student can travel in one horizontal jump. To quote Ninja Rule #98, "Arms are the key to good jumps," so bend those knees, swing those arms, and don't forget to stick the landing!

Pipe Roll

This is one of the trickiest skills on the list, but it is an obstacle that truly tests balance (and can be found in Ninja competitions for all ages!) Ninjas must travel down a 10' PVC pipe, touch a turnaround point, and cross a second time without ever touching the ground. Partial scores are given for distance, while a complete trip down and back is timed.
