Maybe I'm alone in this but I feel like most people, boys mostly, went through a phase where they absolutely loved ninjas. When I was growing up, all I needed to be happy was to hear four powerful words: "Ninja Turtles is on!"

How To Train Your Little Ninja In Boise

Like a lot of kids, when I was really young, I had ambitions of "being a ninja turtle when I grew up." I didn't quite achieve that dream and I honestly couldn't tell you when I realized that human beings don't turn into roided-out mutant turtles when they hit puberty.

That being said, as a kid, I knew I loved ninjas and martial arts. I even went as far as taking a karate class when I was in the third grade. I made it to the orange belt before I exited the program. I don't even remember why to be honest but I regret not sticking with it. Looking back, I definitely recognize how my third-grade self benefited from doing karate and Boise has some excellent options for your little ninja.
