Experience Tokusatsu Moves with the Ninja Wire Action Experience
If you’re planning a trip to Japan, or currently in Japan, plus you read this site, you may be interested in finding more places to engage with tokusatsu-related activities. Besides from shopping for tokusatsu goods or dining at Kamen Rider the Diner, there’s a place for you to try out some of those moves you may see on screen with guidance from the professionals at the AAC Stunts Gym.
AAC Stunts Gym in Ochanomizu in Tokyo is now offering the “Ninja Wire Action Experience.” You’ll learn about how wire action stunts are performed with an action team that has worked in series like Power Rangers, Garo, and Tokyo Ghoul.
If you’re not fluent in Japanese, don’t worry. The course is offered to everyone, but the website and scheduling information is primarily in English.
If you’re wondering about any physical limitations, there are a few: Anyone below 220 pounds can participate in the experience. You don’t have to be an athlete to sign up since the staff are AAC professionals and will guide you throughout the entire process. The course is offered for children as well, but you’ll have to contact the gym first if your child is less than 100 cm tall.
Sessions are held twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You can schedule your session from 9:30AM, 11:00AM, 1:00PM, 2:30PM, 4:00PM, and 5:30PM. Sessions typically last one hour. It’s suggested to arrive at least 15 minutes early to get dressed. Students should arrive in comfortable clothing but refrain from wearing skirts. You’ll be fitted with a ninja costume.
The action team will help you learn the basics, you can have a friend take photos or film you in action. But there’s also a package option to have your performance professionally filmed and edited. This is a great option if you’re traveling solo or your friends wish to be part of the action.
The basic “Ninja Course” is ¥10,000 (or ¥9,000 if you agree to post your ninja video social media). The more advanced “Ninja Movie Course” at ¥15,000 (or ¥14,000 with the social media discount) offers sword fighting choreography and the team will film your feats for you, including editing.
AAC Stunts Gym is located at YushimaD&A Bld.B2A 1-10-5 Yushima Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 〒113-0034 Japan
