'3 Ninjas Kick Back,' directed by Charles T. Kanganis, was released in 1994. It's the follow-up to the film 3 Ninjas. Despite the fact that it was launched as the second installment of the franchise, Kick Back is the third installment of the 3 Ninjas series in terms of chronological order.
The other sequel, 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up, was originally planned to be made concurrently with the first film and with the same actors, but due to distribution complications, it was only released in 1995. Only Max Elliott Slade reprises his role as Jeffrey 'Colt' Douglas, one of the three main protagonists, from the previous movie. Mori's last name changes from Tanaka to Shintaro for no apparent reason throughout the film. It is the only film in the series to receive a video game adaptation.

‘3 Ninjas: Kick Back (1994)’ Storyline
During a championship baseball game, the three boys learn that their grandfather is in peril in Japan and rush out to assist him, forfeiting the game. When they arrive in Japan, they must use all of their abilities to protect him from an old foe who has returned to seek vengeance.
The three underage ninjas find themselves in the heart of martial arts mayhem after accompanying their grandfather to Japan. Rocky, Colt, and Tum Tum are up to their ears in high-kicking action and rapid-fire comedy as they are pursued by a moronic trio of brain-dead robbers and an army of well-trained ninjas. Because of the growing trend in family films, experienced South Korean filmmaker Simon Sheen opted to blend the theme of Asian martial arts with an American children's comedy for his first American feature.
