There may be a lot of ninja movies, but in reality, ninjas couldn't have less in common with the LA celebrity scene. After all, they actively avoid the spotlight, do all their own stunts, and possess actual skills and talents. If you're over the Hollywood egos, get off the glitz grid for an afternoon with this shadowy Adventure: an urban ninja warrior training course, with lessons in self-defense, escapology, and parkour, followed by a sushi lunch.
We'll start by soundlessly slinking over to the Xtreme Training Center in Eagle Rock, where our covert crew will be waiting to check us in. Advanced ninjas can choose the morning session, while beginner or intermediate ninjas can choose the afternoon class. Once we've warmed up, we'll spend the next three hours learning a series of skills that are in every urban warrior's repertoire, including self-defense in real-life situations; surveillance and escapology (getting out of handcuffs, ropes, zip-ties, etc); and parkour (the art of using physical obstacles for creative maneuvering), all from the trained professionals at Level Up Adventures. Once we've mastered all three areas, we'll put our new skills to the test with a 30-minute "simulated reality" scenario.
Since espionage, sabotage, and tactical urban combat are difficult on an empty stomach, we'll wrap up our experience with a sushi lunch (including choice of vegetable rolls, california rolls, spicy tuna rolls, shrimp tempura rolls, and specialty rolls, with water and sodas) courtesy of Echi Sushi. Leave the lights and cameras for the red carpet crowd—this is one Adventure that's all action.
