    GYM STATUS:

    Unfortunately, we are still in a holding pattern.  As we sit at home, exercising social distancing, waiting for the virus to stop spreading, and awaiting a potential cure (anti-virals), we ask for your continued patience.

    Real life Ninja Academy has applied for SBA and Connecticut government loans and grants. While we await help from our federal and local government, we greatly appreciate your understanding. We are a small business, doing everything we can at the moment to keep everyone happy. We know we’ll pull through this situation with the support of our community. I have owned successful gymnastics gyms since 1995 (and ninja specific gyms since 2015), and I am a parent of three (2 are adults now). I assure you that your happiness with Real Life Ninja Academy is extremely important to Drew, I and to our entire staff. We ask now that you support us during this difficult time by offering us your understanding and patience.

    We pledge that all missed classes WILL be remedied to your satisfaction. Unfortunately, refunds are not available at this current time. We thank you for understanding this.

    We hope you’re all safe, healthy, and best wishes for continued health.

    I will continue to stay in touch with updates and answers the best I can.

    Again, thank you for your patience.
