Young nin­jas step up a grade

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

THE next gen­er­a­tion of ninja war­riors have jumped, climbed and swung their way through a com­pe­ti­tion in Bi­bra Lake. Now some are head­ing to the big time.

THE next gen­er­a­tion of ninja war­riors have jumped, climbed and swung their way through a com­pe­ti­tion at Bi­bra Lake’s The Sim­u­la­tion Cen­tre.

More than 50 par­tic­i­pants aged six and older took part in the qual­i­fy­ing event in the hope of earn­ing se­lec­tion to the Aus­tralian Ninja Games and Ul­ti­mate Ninja Ath­lete As­so­ci­a­tion World Fi­nals.

Com­peti­tors were asked to com­plete the course, which in­cluded quin­tu­ple steps, vaults, a peg­board, warped walls and a slack­line, earn­ing a score based on their run time and points achieved on each ob­sta­cle.

The Sim­u­la­tion Cen­tre’s Jus­tine Mamootil said the event had been a big suc­cess, with 16 com­peti­tors earn­ing the op­por­tu­nity to be a part of Oc­to­ber’s Aus­tralian Ninja Games.

She said the pop­u­lar­ity of shows such as Aus­tralian Ninja War­rior made in­clu­sion of a sim­i­lar course at their cen­tre a no-brainer.

“There are no other fa­cil­i­ties in the south­ern area for fam­i­lies to ac­cess such a course,” she said.
