What is Ninja?

Ninja is a sport launched from the global popularity of the Ninja Warrior TV shows. Popular shows in the Ninja Warrior series include American Ninja Warrior, Australian Ninja Warrior and Sasuke.

In ninja, competitors aim to beat an obstacle course. Courses are usually short with no significant distance to run between the obstacles. The obstacles are usually difficult, and tend to focus on agility, technical ability, or upper-body strength. The goal is to get the furthest, fastest – with obstacle completion being the primary goal and speed of completion being the secondary goal.

The New Zealand Obstacle Sports Association is the national sports organisation established to govern ninja and other obstacle sports in New Zealand.

Facilities

New Zealand has a handful of facilities with ninja courses for adults and/or children.
