Everyone has seen at least part of an episode of the American Ninja Warrior. Many of those reading have probably seen seasons worth of events. You're not alone. In fact, that's why there are ninja warrior classes all around the nation and Bodies in Motion is no exception. One major question that we get is, "what does a ninja warrior class teach students?"
It's a good question. Many would automatically think of all the ways that the class can help you get into better shape, but that's not all. Today, we're going to talk about how our Bodies in Motion Ninja Warrior Class teaches students of all ages about teamwork, determination, passion, confidence, and body health.
Though the Ninja Warrior is a single person sport, it's a team endeavour. Working to get in Ninja Warrior shape involves everyone in the class working to overcome new obstacles and bad days. Teachers and coaches will help students push themselves farther and think about challenges in new ways.
Other students will help you keep going through positive encouragement and compliments when you've made it. While at the end of the day, you are only competing against yourself in the Ninja Warrior class, it still takes a group of teammates to help you get there.
Unlike running or basketball, the Ninja Warrior class is about a combination of upper body strength, lower body strength, problem-solving skills, endurance, and determination. The most important, determination. Without this attribute, many would give up before even getting to the end of the course.
Determination is a skill that is fostered and grown through the ninja warrior classes. Students are shown what they can accomplish if they keep trying and never give up. It's essential that the coaches remind each student of how far they've come and how far they can continue to go if they keep trying.
Similar to determination, this is a skill that is needed to run the ninja warrior but is also grown through practicing for it or in classes. Passion is defined as "strong and barely controllable emotion" by Google. Having a passion for a gym class might sound crazy, but it's a great thing.
Passion shows the students what it's like to love what they do. If the student is still a child, this can be transferred to their future career path. Having laid the foundation and given them examples of what it feels like to love "work," they will be able to find something that they have a passion for again.
When a student first starts a ninja class, chances are they can't make it through the first optical without help. However, just a few courses in, they might be able to get through the whole course slowly and with only minor assistance. This accomplishment teaches them confidence. Each time they do something better, they become more confident.
Also, teachers and classmates will let them know how great they did. Over time, this can help build self-confidence not only in the gym but in the real world as well. As a bonus, the further in shape a student gets, often, the more self-confident they become tripping the benefits.
You might have guessed it was going to end here when you saw the name of this post. The Bodies in Motion Ninja Warrior Class is excellent for our student's bodies. However, it's more than just getting in better shape and creating healthy workout habits.
The ninja warrior classes teach students how to read their bodies and know their limits. Creating healthy habits is excellent and can set the child up for a lifetime of success. However, knowing how your body is doing and being able to test and push your limits safely will ensure that those healthy habits can grow and become better over time.
