About this project
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ON OUR THUNDERCLAP!!!
We are the Wolfpack Ninjas as seen on the hit TV show, American Ninja Warrior on NBC. We proudly share with you the Wolfpack Ninja Tour!
Millions of kids across the US dream about playing and competing on an American Ninja Warrior-like obstacle course. NOW THEY CAN! With the same truss and feel of the real obstacle courses--and the top American Ninja Warriors by their side--these weekend-long events will motivate kids and families to play together in a healthy, safe and FUN environment where health and fitness develop naturally and easily.
We all know it's easier to exercise if it's FUN. As kids, learning good fitness and health habits from their role-models and top-Ninja Warriors is a natural way to develop life-long fitness and health habits.
Kids these days are less healthy than ever before and participation in sports is PLUMMETING! With over 1/3 of our nation's kids overweight or obese, something needs to be done.
We want to share our joy of obstacle course running and being healthy with YOUR KIDS! A portion of profits from the Wolfpack Ninja Tour will go towards childhood health initiatives which include education about nutrition and organizations that aim to curb the frightening epidemic of childhood obesity and diabetes in the U.S. Obese and overweight kids are much more likely to develop Heart disease, diabetes and cancer and die early from this totally preventable health state.
The Wolfpack Ninjas want to put on a national tour and get kids motivated to be active through Ninja Sports! At the same time, we want to educate them about sugar and its role in nutrition via their favorite Ninjas!
Basically, we want to make our kid's dreams come true. We have designed a super fun and rewarding family interactive event which teaches your kids how to be Ninjas while playing on a REAL obstacle course!
Check out our Wolfpack Ninjas interactively designed course in action, this was a recent actual test-event in Longmont, CO:
Our mission is to create an atmosphere of family health, fitness and fun to support our broader mission of fighting childhood obesity and diabetes. We really care about our mission and it really matters. We are all fathers (except for Meagan!) coaches and family people at Ninja Sports Group, and we want our children to inherit a healthy nation that once again leads the world as a shining example of health and wellness. It all starts with our kids.
Ninja Sports Group has DESIGNED the Wolfpack Ninja Tour for YOU and YOUR FAMILY to have fun at a multi-city event in 42 major markets across the US starting in 2017. Check out our CAD conceptual INTERACTIVE DESIGN:
Our events will have MULTIPLE COURSES with VARYING DIFFICULTY for kids of all ages, sizes and body-types up through adult PROS! We will have the top Ninjas from the hit show American Ninja Warrior RACING and vying for prizes to the delight of fans!
We are planning to come to Minneapolis, LA, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, Indianapolis, Omaha, Atlanta, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Charlotte, NYC, Boston, Baltimore, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, Columbia, Birmingham, Salt Lake City, and Las Vegas to name a few. You get a chance to vote your city in and there are many more cities we can reach if we hit our "stretch goal."
Don't worry if you don't see your city on the list! We will try to hit all major cities and you can even VOTE on your city! Also, if we hit our stretch goal for our Kickstarter, we will expand the 2017 city list greatly. Let us know what city you want us to go to!
Below are details about both how we will make the Tour a reality-that's the easy part-and how we will make an impact on our nation's health, especially for kids.
We love kids. We love getting kids excited about health and wellness even more. During our events, the Wolfpack Ninjas and other top American Ninja Warriors talk to the kids about eating healthy and the importance of academics and nutrition. We have pamphlets about healthy family eating, and easy ways for families to decrease sugar intake. We know how to get kids healthy, and we know how to keep them motivated to stay healthy through Ninja Sport training and role modeling. Kids listen to us! Check out our Podcast reviews!
"Great and effective message of living a healthy lifestyle! Great podcast and messages of living a healthy lifestyle! Yesterday when I asked my 4-year old (who's obsessed with the Wolfpack) if he wanted to stop by the bakery to get a treat, he said, "No thank you, Mama. I don't want to eat sugar today because Ninjadoc said it wasn't healthy for me, and I want to be a ninja. Do you have any kale?" He ate 3 bowls of raw kale when we got home and said, "I'm training to be a ninja!"

- We are investing in our kids; in their future. Ninja Sports are growing like crazy and this is a massive emerging trend that we are at the front of. Check out this on point article:
- Wolfpack Ninjas have over 125,000 combined Social Media Followers who are very engaged and really want to play on these courses! There are over 6 million American Ninja Warrior fans who want to play on these courses!
- We are focused on health, education and FUN. The events are open to and appropriate for all ages and skill levels from 4 yrs to adult and neophytes to pro ninjas.
- Dr. Kaufman, the Ninjadoc, is our MC and is constantly talking to kids about health and nutrition in a very approachable way.
- Most top American Ninja Warriors are involved and will be present at events to coach, demo, train, race and role-model for your kids. Members of the Wolfpack Ninjas will be at most events!
- We have already hosted several very profitable Wolfpack Ninja Tour "test" events with terrific attendance, participation and throughput. Through these efforts, we have benefitted important charities and refined our events.
- We have started investing in the truss, professional grade safety mats/pads and tents/signage to build out events with profits from our test events. We own 2 large 40' X 16' Wolfpack Ninjas safety air mats and 80'x16'x10' of truss so far. With your contribution, we can afford to build our massive interactive design obstacle courses for your kids and thousands others and transport them around the country!
- We have event staff, liability insurance, waivers, licensed merchandise and infrastructure already established.
- The Wolfpack Ninjas brand is exploding in popularity with a Wolfpack Ninja Podcast on iTunes, Wolfpack Ninja Training Manual on iBooks Store, a professional grade brand website (www.wolfpackninjas.com) and a consumer product line (backyard obstacle courses, ninja gear, toys, etc.) in the works available at Target, WalMart and Amazon. One of these ninja products won "Toy of the Year" in 2016!
- Ninja Sports Group has exclusive management agreements with many of the top ninjas! We are a company of ninjas representing ninjas. Please see www.ninjasportsgroup.com to see our roster of top talent.
- Ninja Sports Group is made up of the Wolfpack Ninjas - Dr. Noah Kaufman, Meagan Martin, Brian Arnold & Ian Dory along with sports industry professionals Dan Cramer with 25 years in the national event tour business and Bruce Fletcher, a renowned sports marketer, business development, consumer products and licensing executive. Together, we are the hardest working team out there, and we are passionate about our mission.
We founded NSG to make the world healthier one kid at a time. Join us!
The Wolfpack Ninja Tour will succeed since our events are already profitable. We can accelerate purchase of truss, obstacle build-out, signage, tents, transportation and warehouse if we have your support.
At the following levels, we can achieve the following milestones:
At $25k we reach our minimum goal. YAY! We can buy 2 of 12 more truss obstacle courses and Tour many of the cities we have planned for 2017!
At $100k we can buy 8 of 12 more truss sets and safety pads and Tour most of the cities on our list!
At $500k we can buy all of the truss, safety pads, signage, tents and start in on some of the warehousing needs, trucks for transportation and development of a health and wellness curriculum for Ninja Kids! This would be a great raise for us! We can Tour ALL of the cities on our list!
At $1M+ we can do all of the above and start a foundation to better combat childhood obesity. We will have enough capital for offices, development of additional business to help contribute charity to the foundation, and bring our events indoors to convention centers. We can also double the number of cities we visit in this scenario.
At $2M+ We can do all of the above & WE CAN START TO BRING WOLFPACK NINJA GYMS TO YOUR CITY! PLEASE HELP US REACH THIS GOAL! THIS WILL REALLY KICKSTART OUR VISION!
Of course, $2 million is a stretch goal, and we are dreaming big and want to have a big impact on the health of our nation. It all starts with our kids, our future.
Together, we can make our kid's dreams come true! Our business pros have partnered with Media, 501c3 and Sponsor partners for past events including 3v3 Kick-it Soccer, Swimjitsu and others. They bring the operational and branding/licensing experience to complement the Wolfpack Ninja's Obstacle & Kid know-how.
See our most recent event in Fort Collins, CO - Peachfest August 20th!
"A Grand Opening for a Regional shopping center only happens once and we wanted to make it memorable. By incorporating the Wolfpack Ninjas, we did just that. We estimate we had close to 10,000 people come through that day, which was amazing. Having the Ninjas and the course gave the residents of Longmont an experience they wouldn’t get anywhere else and wouldn’t soon forget! Seeing the faces of the kids large and small who go a chance to not only see the Ninjas conquer obstacles, but also try themselves, was priceless. I could not have been more pleased with what the Wolfpack Ninjas with their tour brought and the memorable experience we were able to deliver. I can’t wait for our next event together and to look for ways to make it even bigger next time!"

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!
LET'S MAKE THIS TOUR A REALITY!

Risks and challenges
All businesses face risk. We have mitigated these risks by partnering with sports industry professionals who have over 25 years of event operating experience. Our business partners know how to run events successfully to create the most fun and value for our participants. We also have brand licensing specialists who will make sure that the magic of the Wolfpack Ninjas is flourishing for your kids to enjoy! Lastly, the Ninjas will be taking an active role in participating in these events, teaching your kids in a hands-on way and showcasing their skills with live demos and professional competition from many of the top stars seen on the American ninja warrior TV show. We already own a truss obstacle course and will be building on that to make numerous obstacles courses of varying difficulty for kids of all ages and adults who want to tackle the real live warped wall.
Other possible risks include:
-Competition from the American Ninja Warrior brand. We are in meetings with NBC and have a very positive relationship as a major (independent) sub-brand of the American Ninja Warrior franchise. We own trademarks of all related Wolfpack Ninjas' assets.
-Lack of demand. We have seen the exact opposite of this at our test events, and in fact, it has been a real challenge to meet demand. That being said, American Ninja Warrior itself and obstacle courses may be a fad. Our research shows otherwise though, and we believe we are at the forefront of a powerful and positive emerging heath and fitness trend.
-Insufficient funding. Our tours have proven to be quite profitable so far, so after our Kickstarter helps raise the necessary capital to buildout the course, secure offices, warehouse space, staff, transportation and other common business expenses, we should easily be able to grow quickly and mature the brand and pursue other positive brand messaging opportunities to make an even larger impact on childhood health. We want to provide your kids with real world heroes to model their young lives after.
-Competition. This is a massive and nascent market and we have considerable strength with our brand. We feel this is a land-grab opportunity, and we welcome competition from other event businesses such as Tough Mudder, Spartan Race, Alpha Warrior and other grass-roots events. We feel competition is good for the marketplace. We also feel that we are uniquely positioned to work with professional ninjas and have developed IP with regards to safety, education and FUN that other event based companies do not have. At this point, competition will only grow the marketplace and provide top-notch and healthy experiences for our families.
We are not in the process of completing any past or contemporary projects. Our time is fully dedicated to this tour and growth of the brand and we require no premarket review from any outside company or agencies before we are able to distribute rewards.
We welcome questions and will build a FAQ on our project page once our project goes live. Check back for frequent updates!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
