A Ninja first!

It was a fantastic weekend of Ninja action February 2-3, as CTC Obstacles held its first-ever recreational Ninja competition. The site, which is now part of the Competitive National Ninja League, will hold its first league competition this spring.


They made it official the weekend of February 2-3. Since becoming a member of the Competitive National Ninja League earlier in the year, CTC Obstacles held its first-ever recreational competition to get the ball rolling!

And what a weekend it was. The competition featured both short and long courses at various age groups. Across the board, CTC Obstacles welcomed numerous competitors for the first Ninja event, including some competitors from other gyms in Ontario (what a great way to meet new ninjas!). Some fantastic times were achieved, and all involved had a great time.

Winners included:
Ages 6 to 8: Evan, ‘The Young Warrior Ninja’ (Short Course); Ben, ‘The Chess Ninja’ (Long Course)
Ages 9-10: Gavin, ‘The JuiJitsu Ninja’ (both Short and Long Course)
Ages 11-12: Luke, ‘The Boss Ninja’ (Short Course); Cian, ‘The Ninja Ninja’ (Long Course)
Ages 18 & up: Ryan Rigby, ‘The Bearded Ninja’ (both Short and Long Course)
Ages 40 & up: Jeff Boris, ‘Off Road Ninja’ (both Short and Long Course)


Shortly after the event, CTC Obstacles took to Facebook to proclaim the event a resounding success: “WOW!! What a weekend!! Everyone did so well!! We had kids and adults blow past their expectations and conquer obstacles they didn’t know they could!! … We had great parents and fans cheering on the competitors!! Thank you for coming out to support them!!”


Summer Camp Fun

CTC Obstacles is excited to offer Summer Camps this year, and there are lots of options to choose from for interested athletes. Camps are held for kids aged 6 to 14, and will feature parkour, warped walls, and American Ninja Warrior activities. Cost is $245 for a 5-day pass (which can be used any 5 days), or $210 for the week. A one full day camp fee is $55.

The camp will be filled with open play time, and instructors will work with young athletes on goal-setting in addition to providing ninja, gymnastics, and parkour training (there’s even a bit of boxing and muay thai training as well!). Campers will also have the opportunity to participate in time trials, workouts and course designs.
