Creating Real Life Ninjas of All Ages

“Together we will overcome obstacles!”

As co-owner and lead trainer of the Real Life Ninja Academy, Drew Drechsel is a 7 time Ninja Warrior Competitor, 6 time Mount Midoriyama Veteran, 5 time Sasuke Competitor, with many other accomplishments under his belt since 2015. Drew has designed all of the ninja equipment, curriculum, and has trained all of the staff himself. Because of this we are a truly unique place.

The Real Life Ninja Academy isn’t a gym, and it isn’t an obstacle course facility. It’s a fully instructional Real Life Ninja Warrior training gym for kids and adults that will teach you the real sport of Ninja in a fun, encouraging, and structured environment. With locations around the U.S., we are the real deal.

Unique Challenges for All Levels

  • Kids Classes & Camps

    With fun new challenges each week, students learn body control and proper technique to move through the obstacles and gain strength and confidence! We offer semester enrollment (12 classes) with home school and family discounts. Kids classes run from ages 5-15.

  • Adult Classes

    Adult Ninja Warrior classes develop strength, agility, and discipline as you move your way up in skill level to more advanced obstacles. Most of the staff at our locations are true Ninja Warrior competitors, and many students (adults and kids) have also competed on the show.

  • Birthday Parties

    Have your next party right here! Kids will get an hour of obstacle training in our gym by our professional Ninja staff. After that there’s plenty of time for food and cake, and our staff will assist in setups and cleanups – just sit back and enjoy the party, we’ll take care of the rest!
