Students will use rubber weapons to learn the ins and outs of dagger and knife fighting before mastering parkour and tackling an American Ninja Warrior–based obstacle course complete with parkour challenges and flying rubber daggers. The masked students will rise from apprentice to master ninjas, ready to battle any invisible enemies. Vietnamese banh mi and nonalcoholic beverages will be provided throughout the event (vegetarian options are available upon requests made in advance). At the end of the class, students-turned-ninjas will be issued an Urban Evolution ninja mask and a sword. Adults will be issued a real edged ninja sword, while kids receive a real bokken, or wood practice sword, to take home. However, participants may not remove swords from their packaging until they are off Urban Evolution’s premises.
The world is a playground, according to the stunt artists and gymnasts who helm Urban Evolution. At this CNN- and Channel 11 WBAL -featured gym, there are no treadmills or stationary bikes. Instead, dance-like movements and acrobatic leaps propel visitors toward apexes of fun and fitness. To ready physiques for such feats, ropes, trapezes, and gymnastics equipment facilitate body-weight exercises that build balance, flexibility, and coordination. Seasoned instructors oversee the training space, teaching students how to jump, climb, crawl, and tumble as safely as possible during movement-focused classes such as Parkour, Free Running, and Aerial Acrobatics. Kettlebells and other functional strength-training tools power UrbanFit conditioning workouts, which give participants the brawn to perform everyday tasks such as pushing lawnmowers, lifting grocery bags, and drawing sleighs filled with lazy reindeer.
