...And you can get the supplies in just two stops - one visit to the local hardware store and one visit to the sporting goods store. (around $20 worth of materials total)



And if you're visiting the sporting goods store, consider adding a slackline to your gift lineup. Slacklines make for ninja family fun year round.  

A slackline provides awesome whole-body balancing action to increase agility and stability while working the core muscles and bringing lots of laughs along the way.

And the good news is these are also easy to build in about 45 minutes or less with about $60 worth of materials from any hardware store.

This one is an over the top idea that every ninja athlete dreams about.  

It’s the ultimate icon of every ninja warrior course, and overcoming this obstacle means more than just fitness and persistence.  

It brings out the inner warrior because it teaches the backyard ninja to dig deep and work hard for an accomplishment that symbolizes success and victory.

The Warped Wall is just as exciting to build as it is to watch your favorite ninja practice on.  And it can be built in a single day.  

It’s the perfect post-holiday project when you have some time on your hands and some help around the house.

Have a look at this 3-minute how-to video:

Backyard Ninja Practice Set


At-home ninja practice areas are rapidly replacing backyard “swing sets” for every ninja warrior who dreams of making their mark as a real competitor.

For those athletes that have made up their mind that "ninja warrior” is their new sport of choice, nothing can compare to pouring all that energy into "ninja practice” on their very own obstacle set, ready and waiting for a challenge right outside the window.  

Having a complete, compact ninja course in our own backyard is where this adventure all started for us.  

It all began with a birthday wish and wound up being something that’s brought our whole family together and continues to provide countless hours of fun all these years later.   

If you’re looking for something that will make for a picture-perfect moment to capture on Christmas morning, nothing compares to the thought of unwrapping a set of plans to build a complete ninja course right in your own backyard.

Here's hoping that this has sparked some ideas for your favorite ninja warrior’s wish list and will help to make holiday magic and memories that will last a lifetime.

Just remember, half the fun for the family can be found in the building.  

That’s the great thing about a DIY project. It’s the perfect opportunity to make time for making memories with someone you love.  That’s really the gift that keeps on giving.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
