Gymnastics is a leader in developing fundamental movement skills and provides participants with general fitness, coordination, agility, strength, balance and speed.
Ninja programs use a fusion of gymnastics, trampoline, acrobatics, obstacle course training and freestyle movement.
Many gymnasts compete on the popular TV show Australian Ninja Warrior
, where competitors go through a rigorous series of obstacles for the chance to become the next Australian Ninja Warrior.
