the table and chairs is really simple yet very well done and a nice render with all the shadows.

the jumps could use some work, he hangs in the air for quite a while, unless that kind of super human jumping gravity is what you were going for with the ninja.

also, would be nice to put this altogether in a composition rather than 5-6 files

Study traditional animation. Watch a recording of someone jump. Look how they accelerate on the fall and it is really fast. Also you nead some anticipation. Have him squat before he leeps. Try doing an animation of a simple bouncing ball first. Get that to look right. Those principles will help you.
