    Developing a Growth Mindset in a Competitive World

    Developing a Growth Mindset in a Competitive World In today’s world competition is everywhere and it often starts at a very young age. It begins as a fun, skill-developing event but can quickly become time-consuming and competitive. While some parents want their children pushed to help them learn the hard lessons of life, others want to protect their children from the disappointment that can come with competition.

    Training dates with your little Ninja

    Training Dates with your Ninja You may hear your child’s instructor talking about practice time at home fairly often. This is because practicing can have a huge impact on a ninja’s ability to perform in class which will lead to more confidence. With more confidence comes the ability to achieve faster and farther!
