About Ninja Warrior

Ninja Warrior at Fighting Lyons

Ninja Warrior has become one of Australia’s fastest-growing sports and the Lyons Ninja Warrior Academy is here to help you achieve your fitness goals and guide you on your Ninja Warrior Journey.

Fighting Lyons originally started teaching Ninja Warrior in 2017 just before Australian Ninja Warrior hit the TV screens. Dual Olympian and Club Founder Paul Lyons founded the program after being invited to participate in the first season. As fate would have it, Paul injured himself and was unable to compete in the first season but this allowed us to lay out the foundations of what our Ninja Program has become today.

Our Ninja Warrior program is now overseen by Owner and Australian Head Ninja Warrior Coach, Michael Mischefski. Michael has competed in Season 4 of Australian Ninja Warrior and was Personal Coach to Australian Ninja Warrior Breakout Athlete, Ash Campbell. Off the show, Michael ranked 23rd in the NNL World Ninja Championships in 2020 and ranked 1st in the UNAA Australian Amateur Division in 2019.Β 

Michael is best known for his Coaching skills and training the next generation of Ninja Warrior Champions. He is the Australian Head Coach for the UNAA, and being awarded the top Australian Coach for 2021,2022, and 2023.

Today our Ninja classes start as young as 2 years old and our extensive program offers something for everyone. We also host Local Competitions, National Qualifiers, Birthday Parties, and Community Events.



Have little Ninjas at home that like jumping on the couch and pretending the floor is lava? We have the class for you.

Mini Ninja is an obstacle-based class that introduces Ninja Warrior to 2-5 Year Olds. Our Mini Ninjas will be working on balancing on and traversing obstacles, learning to swing and climb, zipping on our 14-metre Flying Fox, and conquering the warped wall!Β
