Mrs Emily Akerman, Teacher and PE Coordinator for Bussage Primary School, Stroud
Ninja Tots has been an amazing way to get children in the younger years inspired by a sport. Our aim this year was to encourage participation from KS1 and this has certainly helped us in our quest. The weekly club has not only helped increase participation but taught the children invaluable skills along the way such as increasing attention span and hand-eye coordination. Ninja Tots also came to our sports week and taught each class, from Reception to Year 6, for a 30 minute session. It was great to watch the higher years learn about self-defence and they found the experience very interesting.

During our Sports week I invited Mrs Foote to work with our Key Stage One and Early Years classes. This was a sport that the majority of the children had not experienced before and it was very popular. The children were still talking about it weeks later! Each session was age appropriate and matched the needs of the children well. This was very successful and I would not hesitate to include it in future sports weeks.

The children at school love being part of the Ninja Tots group. After each session, the children busily chat about what they have done and are quick to show their parents what they have learnt when they are picked up. The enthusiasm for the club has spread across the school and I am inundated with requests from children wanting to sign up next time.

Ninja Tots offers a unique and innovative approach to martial arts in a fun, structured and safe way. There is clear progression as the children learn the movements and there are many benefits applicable to the classroom in terms of listening skills, concentration, self-discipline and energy levels. I would 100% recommend Ninja Tots to any school provider - you will love it.
Miss Turner, Teacher, Ashton Keynes CofE Primary School, Wiltshire
Many thanks to Ninja Tots for taking the time to lead an assembly and teach a PE lesson. The children thoroughly enjoyed both and got a lot out of them. They still refer to the values of Ninja Tots in their PE sessions and across the wider curriculum. The Instructor was really engaging and supportive and the children responded well to her. The sessions were well organised with a really good mix of information and age appropriate activity.
Cathy Harris, Crudwell Pre-School Manager
Crudwell Pre-School were looking for a new and exciting physical activity to add to our termly routine. This is when we found Ninja Tots. We have had many sessions now and each time Ninja Tots has ensured that the lesson is adapted to include children of all ages and abilities. The children are always very excited each time we have Ninja Tots to visit and can't we wait for our next session. Thank you Ninja Tots.
Helen Guerrini, Parent and Early Year's Teacher, Gloucestershire
Dylan, who is 5, has been attending Ninja Tots for nearly a year. It has really helped him to focus on skills such as listening and following instructions. The Ninja Tots classes are extremely well formulated and I love the fact that they focus on a particular skill each week. Ninja Tots has done a huge amount for Dylan's balance and coordination, which are also crucial skills to transfer into school. He has developed his confidence and most importantly - he absolutely loves it!! As does my 2 yr old who is desperately waiting in the wings to join in. I can't recommend it highly enough.
