• In light of the recent accusations against Drew Drechsel, we have made the unanimous decision to rebrand and rename all of our gyms and create a new overall theme and look. Drew Drechsel is not receiving any compensation from our gyms and has no involvement in any way.  We have begun the legal process to remove his share in ownership.

    As we have previously stated, this type of disturbing behavior has no place in our community.

    Our gym programs are bigger than one person, and we are committed to doing whatever it takes to provide a safe and secure sanctuary for all people to train, and continue to thrive as a community of ninjas. We will soon have an update as to all of the progress we are making to a new beginning.

    A reminder of our statement below:

    The accusations against Drew Drechsel are incredibly disturbing and in stark opposition with the values of this academy. This type of behavior has no place in our community and I fully condemn his actions. Moving forward, the business will remain under my management, and Drew Drechsel will no longer be making any decisions relating to this academy. We remain committed to making the protection and safety of our clients our top priority.”
