Ninjutsu is a martial art that promotes the personal development of high values, moral codes and an exciting circle of learning and self-discovery. Our lessons are age specific. Each age group we teach gets exactly what they need from our classes, from fun games and acrobatic skills to confidence building and lessons in team work. Our syllabus includes activities for fitness, anti-bullying, self-defence as well as important life lessons to help children grow physically, mentally and emotionally.
The children are split into age groups as follows:-
3½ - 4½ years Ninja Tots
4½ - 7 years Mini Ninjas
8 - 11 years Mighty Ninjas
12+ Teen Ninjas.
Ninpo is an art that children and parents can be proud of. It is a way for shy children to grow in confidence, for boisterous children to understand and learn discipline, for all children to understand and channel feelings of frustration, stress and anger into a positive direction.
We focus on helping children understand how to avoid conflict and aggression, gaining skills to help them escape danger. Through learning the value of patience and focus, children can one day achieve the highly coveted rank of Black Belt.

I have been taking Howie to Samurai for about two years now. For me, the primary reason was the importance of Howie doing something physical. I also wanted Howie to be in a male dominated environment as that is lacking in school. He learns self-discipline and respect for the Sensei, who in return are so lovely and friendly. They build great relationships with the children and make it fun. Also he is learning Japanese, something he wouldn't have been exposed to anywhere else which is amazing! All I would say is it would be great to have some kind of facility for the younger siblings as it can be hard to keep them entertained while we are waiting in the café.
Fraser has been coming to the club for about three years and Charlie for the past two. The boys really enjoy coming every week. It is a safe, welcoming club. They are really interested in each individual and concentrates on them reaching their potential and keeping them motivated through incentives. The class provides self-discipline, respect toward others, and teaches them to understand the reasons why there are rules. The physical element of the self defence is very useful and I particularly like the meditate element. The café has a created a good environment for the parents to sit and chat whilst the classes are going on. The only thing I would like is more flexibility through the holidays!
Spike started at the Samurai Centre about 2 years ago now. It was primarily for fitness, discipline and a source of male mentoring, which is sadly lacking in primary school. The Senseis are great with the kids; they really excel at getting to know everyone individually. They keep control and improve self discipline whilst making the class fun and enjoyable. They are friendly and approachable, and bring out the best in each child, whether they are naturally sporty or need some help with their confidence. Spike has a real sense of achievement with each belt, I really hope that he continues through to his teens like the students who help out in the classes. Many of them have been there since they were young, and are calm, friendly, welcoming young adults and a credit to the club
Love these classes. My 6 year old girl cant wait for Thursday's so as to become a 'Ninja'! She practices her moves during the week. I thought it would be fun but now I also believe it will be great for her confidence and self defence. Fantastic, highly recommend!
Excellent child orientated teaching - carefully considered development program and a wonderful cafe to boot!
Above all - these guys practice and promote positive values with patience and a smile - thanks.
