Nat likes to play (ie, train) as much as possible who suffers severe ground allergies… she’s always climbing, on ninja obstacles or inverted.  Do her feet ever touch the ground?  We’ve never seen it.

As Warriors we adapt to the difficulty of the course and overcome its obstacles. In the same way we are adapting to the current global situation by organizing the League’s competitions online where athletes from around the world don’t have to travel outside their areas but compete at their local gyms with the competitions being live streamed.

Competition brings out the best in us… Ninja Sport is brand new and international competition will push us all to train harder, dream bigger and set our sights on previously unimagined-horizons.
