I bought the Ninja experience for my partner for his birthday as a surprise and we were blown away. It was not some gimmicky class but was taught with such respect for the culture that we had so much fun and also learnt so much!...More

We enjoyed an hour class. The instructors were very fun, kind and thorough. It was something very different - a nice change from visiting temples, etc. The small class was interesting and professional. Loved our photos. Great for all ages!

A real insight into Ninja. The kids were fascinated by the lesson they took. My husband took it to join in and found it surprisingly fun. Very interactive and hands on. I just watched and even that was enjoyable.
