You leap across a huge drop like it isn’t there, sprint up a vertical wall then execute an epic back flip off the top. Are you showing off? Yeah maybe a little. But isn’t that the whole point?
Ninja Stars is surprisingly easy to get into! And once you’re hooked, it’s almost impossible to stop. You’ll start by getting to grips with some of the basic techniques and jumps, then you’ll progress through our level system, working on more complicated free-running skills, acrobatics, bar skills, martial art kick’s and combo’s.
We run sessions from 5-16 years old. J Star provides a safe & friendly environment with professional coaches to help kiddos learn.
Ninja Stars is a fusion of Parkour, Gymnastics, Martial arts and Freestyle movements. The programme has been designed to give children the opportunity to focus their energy and develop grit and confidence through a progressive award scheme.
Our classes are fast paced and kids will get lots of turns learning a variety of flips, rolls, kicks and tricks. Obstacle courses, strength and balance circuits, fun challenges and games are included to create action packed, fun-filled classes for everyone.
The Ninja Stars Award scheme
Children will learn a variety of flips, rolls, kicks and tricks combined with developing strength, agility and confidence that is developed through a progressive level system.
Our award scheme progresses through levels 1-6 stars. Starting on one star, ninja’s will learn basic kicks, rolls and freestyle movements. As Ninja’s progress through Level’s, they will be challenged with learning more complicated free-running skills, acrobatics, bar skills, martial arts kicks and combo’s and will develop strength and agility which will be tested with various fun challenges along the way.
Once children have completed all the skills in each level, they will be invited to Level UP. Level UP events (held on Sundays) give ninja’s the opportunity to showcase the skills they’ve learnt in a fun style event which will include an obstacle course, revealed only for the first time that day! Ninja’s will have learnt the skills but they won’t know the course until it’s time to Level UP! At each Level UP event, they will be awarded with a certificate and their next level head band. They will then move up to the next level.
Unlike gymnastics competitions, the environment is more relaxed and the main focus is to give kids the chance to showcase skills to their families, without any pressure of being judged and win first place. Children will only be invited to Level UP once they have completed all their skills so each and every child will move up!
Please note: Whilst finalising this programme over lockdown and with uncertain times ahead, we realise that showcasing skills at Level UP events with families watching might not be possible initially so until then, we will have mini competitions during class with just the children and will start scheduling in events as soon as we are allowed to do so.

We have scope to open up more day's when our initial classes fill up.
If none of these classes suit, don't forget we also run gymnastics and Trampoline classes. Check out our awesome range of programmes on our website www.jstargymnastics.co.uk
As this is a new programme, it is likely that once children are enrolled and we've established what ability / level they are we may ask you to move classes to group abilities together. I suspect most children will be beginners but some of our older freestylers may need to change days / classes to ensure they are with similar abilities. We'll do this as we go.
Is Ninja Stars for boys AND girls?
YES! Boys were our initial target market, however we have decided to leave all classes open to boys and girls as we always had girls attend our freestyle class before lock down so we have decided to leave enrolment open to both.
