CHILDREN wanting to become ninja warriors can now learn from some of Australia’s best senseis at a purpose-built school in Osborne Park.

The Shinobi School at the Ninja Academy on Scarborough Beach Road opened earlier this month to children aged 7-15.

The school is home to a ninja warrior-style course with 12 obstacles that will have children swinging, climbing and balancing their way to the end.

Founder Dave Ravi said he wished he had something like the Shinobi School as a kid because he was a bit fearful and found ninja-style training only as an adult.

“The new Shinobi School is a way for us to offer a similar experience to a younger audience without taking away from the unique environment we’ve worked so hard to cultivate at Ninja Academy,” he said.

The school runs one-hour lessons from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
