Kids Ninja Classes

Ninja Classes are great for kids who want to learn how to tackle the various obstacles! We work on different obstacles each week building strength, endurance, and confidence. Classes are 55 minutes long, including a warm-up, obstacle coaching/technique, endurance, and free time.

Preschool - Ages 3-5

Preschool Ninja Classes will focus on developing coordination and strength through skills such as balancing, hanging, jumping, climbing and running, while instilling self-confidence and teamwork in a safe and positive environment.

Beginner - Ages 6-10

The Beginner Ninja class will focus on tackling the obstacles we’ve all seen on NBC’s American Ninja! Ninjas are not required to have any prior experience with obstacles. They learn how to approach new challenges safely while having fun and exploring movements. Instructors set goals and challenges for students which help them gradually develop solid fundamental skills.

Booking the party, communication from the staff with party details and the party itself were all a breeze. The staff at ultimate ninjas was welcoming, so organized, and great with the kids! As a mom, not having to worry about a thing except showing up was fantastic! I loved how the kids rotated through different sections of the gym. My only suggestion is that the party room time could be shorter. The kids really wanted to play more!

My son had the best 6th birthday party at Ultimate Ninja North Shore. The party was well run, the staff was attentive to make sure our needs were met, and everything was smooth sailing. Couldn't have been easier to have the party there. My son and his friends had the best time - will definitely be hosting another birthday party there in the future.

Hosted my son's 6th birthday at Ultimate Ninjas in Glenview and it was great! Their staff was extremely helpful, set up everything and were engaged with the kids. Only one other party was going on at the same time so it was easy to keep an eye on everyone. Would definitely recommend!

My daughter had the best party here! The staff and facility was great and so helpful! Stephanie was great to work with when she invited us to come and tour the facility and explained how everything was going to go. A week before there needed to be some adjustments made and Stephanie was willing to work with me to help make the party amazing. Parents and kids are still talking about how much fun they had weeks later!

Ultimate Ninjas NorthShore is a GREAT place for a kids Birthday party! My daughter and her friends (ages 4-6) had an absolute blast. The staff was great from start to finish. Activity options ranged from climbing up walls, hanging from ring and bars, sliding down slides, playing basketball, guided obstacle courses and more. We had many sets of hands helping with set up and takedown of the party room, serving the kids snacks and treats, and most importantly they ran all the activities. We would definitely do another party here. My daughter also does a weekly “ninja class” here too, which she loves and always sleeps well the night afterwards. Great spot for activities and parties!

We found ultimate ninja through the Palatine park district I will always remember the moment a small act of generosity from the manager Stephanie changed the course of my daughter’s experience of class. My daughter has always been a quiet child in spirit she was nervous and it was her first time, she did not want to participate in class. Stephanie came to the rescue spoke with my daughter & stayed with my daughter the entire time. The simple act of staying with my daughter for comfort made my daughter want to come to this place even more now. Thank you Stephanie from the bottom of my heart for being a beacon of light — I would give 500000/5 stars if i could. Good workers are very hard to come by these day. Thank you for being great! Highly recommend this place to anybody.

Had a combined birthday party for my 2 children with a large group - 44 kids (90 people total) was amazing from start to finish! Place is clean and every kid had a blast - ages 2-10!! Anytime I called no matter who I got on the phone, everyone was super friendly and polite. Any questions I had with the party, Stephanie was awesome to work with. Adults were texting me that night and next day about how great of a party it was. Definitely recommend this place.

Planned a party for 80 kids and everything went so smoothly. The staff was helpful with all the kiddos, monitoring and helping them. They set up the rooms, passed out all the food and really made my time so much easier, thanks Bowden!!. I was really impressed with all the service. Stephanie was a pleasure to deal with and was great with communication. I especially loved that they were able to play our playlist. That was just an extra special touch. Thanks so much guys.

We've sent our 10 year old to a few of UN's camps and most recently hosted our daughter's 6 birthday party here. I cannot say enough good things about this business - from the quality of the staff who are warm and engaging with adults and kids alike to the quality of the facility, which is clean, spacious and full of activities for all ages and levels of athleticism. I highly recommend Ultimate Ninjas for all!!

Our kids LOVE coming here! They've become so strong, and they've learned how to overcome obstacles, (literally and figuratively) through the weekly sessions.

This place is so much fun for all ages! What an incredible place for a party! We just hosted a kids party here for our son's Bar Mitzvah celebration, and it was perfect! The manager, Cesar, couldn't have been more helpful and easy to work with. His staff was energetic, engaged well with the kids and made sure that everyone was safe, while still having a good time. We were able to have a dj and other traditional aspects to a Bar Mitzvah celebration, while allowing for nontraditional activities for the kids. Every child had a blast on the equipment and left wanting more. Even the adults had fun in the gym! Whether you're looking for a class, open gym time, a birthday party or a larger event like a Bar Mitzvah, I can't recommend Ultimate Ninjas highly enough!

This place was amazing! We had our 7 year old’s birthday party there and everything was perfect. The staff was fantastic, it was well organized, and clean! They take care of everything, set up, ordering pizza, clean up. They have staff on hand to set up ninja challenges for the kids and the adults get to play too! I cannot stress enough how wonderful the staff was.HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!

This place is awesome. We hosted our sons birthday party last night, and every kid loved it and had a blast. What a unique experience where the kids and burn energy and have fun. The gym was clean and large, and the facilitators were great. Brian was great as well and super helpful. Our party was pretty late so we didn't order pizza, but the pizza company they use is delicious. Parties here could accommodate a wide range of ages - even adults! I'll also be looking into classes for the kids as it's such a great experience, especially for the winter!
