Neely’s Little Ninjas is a beginner mixed martial arts class for five- to eight-year-olds. They learn basic punches, kicks, stance, and work on strength and flexibility. Their semester recently finished with a sparring tournament. All participants received a chevron for their accomplishment and a certificate of completion. The top two in each division received medals.

The Neely Arts Center will be hosting Little Ninjas Karate Camp this summer. Two sessions are available: June 18-22, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and July 16-20, 10 a.m. to noon. Cost is $75 per child.
