Meet the Ninja Camp team
Think of him as Ninjago’s Sensei Wu, if you’re 7, or as Bruce Lee if you’re, well, not 7! Wisdom is the name of his game. With 45 years of experience in martial arts from karate to kickboxing to boxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Sensei Mike offers his students “osu”: the ability to be strong in difficult situations. He is serious when he says that he sure can teach heart. He excels at the neuroscience of success and has an unparalleled aptitude at helping his students achieve no matter their background.
Mr. Phelps and his dry wit bring crazy amounts of joy to even the tiniest of ninjas! He has a warm, caring yet firm presence on the mat. His background in competitive kickboxing seems to be at odds with his Lil Ninja Pied Piper approach but it’s in fact the perfect compliment. Mr. Phelps has become a celebrity among the Little Ninjas – every event or camp he hosts sells out! Don’t miss your chance to learn from this fan favorite!
Mr. Schimmel is a living, breathing ninja. Not only can he flip upside down from standing still, he can actually ride his bike upside down in the air. Really. His mellow, Santa Cruz style brings some summertime chill to the dojo. However, don’t let that fool you. His classes are intense and technical but also fun and he brings out the best in all his students from little ninjas to teens at ground zero.

Hear it from our parents.
My 12 year old boy came home so exhausted and happy each day from camp! He thought he might be too old but the Teen Camp with Mr. Phelps has just the right tone. I definitely recommend it!mom of a teenage ninja
I have been blessed to find places for my children to go where they are treated like family. Practical Martial Arts is one of those places. My son and daughter had such a good time and they can't wait to go back to Ninja camp.mom of two ninjas
The instructors were not only energetic, caring, present but amazing teachers of Martial Arts. The day was filled with so many different activities, it kept him entertained and looking forward to each day.mom of a lil' ninja
My daughter was a little shy and was nervous to try martial arts. Those feelings subsided as soon as she started the camp. Mike and Karen are so enthusiastic and make each student feel so welcome and comfortable immediately!mom of a girl ninja
