I started doing parkour four years ago after I started watching American ninja warrior. I go to a gym called Alternate Routes in Maryland and have been going there for over a little over a year now. In that time I have competed on American ninja warrior Junior #AMAXING and placed third overall at UNAA finals, 4th place NNL finals.

Hi, I’m Isabella Wakeham! I’ve been training for 5 years, with Ninja legends Daniel Gil, Josh Salinas and all of the amazing athletes at Iron Sports. I have podiumed at almost every National and World Championships I have been to (we don’t talk about NNL 2019) ;) and won the silver medal in the Pro female division at UNAA World Championships. I competed on ANWJR season 1 and tested and cheered with my BOC friends for season 2! I love my church, ice cream, and the ninja community!
I’m 30, from Oakland, Maine. My favorite obstacle is the cargo net HAHA just kidding... it’s the double dipper. My favorite ninjas are Chris DiGangi ️, Jon Alexis - we’ve been friends since I was 15 and he’s the reason I started ninja! We drove 12 hours from Maine to go to a ninja comp at Alternate Route. Never trained on a single obstacle . The only other sport I was competitive in was Track, competed D1 in college and competed at Jr Nationals and NCAA nationals.
I live in Castle Rock, Colorado and I am a proud member of Team Ninja Intensity. I began my ninja journey with a local competition in 2017 and have been competing non stop and traveling to different gyms around the country ever since. I love the sport of Ninja and helping others train and compete, especially my brother. I was very fortunate to have competed on ANWJR season 1 and becoming 2019 UNAA and State Games of America champion. Excited to be a part of Bucket of Chalk!
I am 14 years old, live in Thompsons Station, Tennessee and I've been competing in Ninja for the past 3 years. I am the only kid in the nation that has competing in all of the Ninja National finals (3 UNAA & 2 NNL). I travel all over the country competing in ninja competitions and I have been the point leader for my age group in the National Ninja League the past 2 seasons. I train on my backyard course everyday and am a proud member of Team Ninja Intensity! I love my ninja friends around the country and enjoy spending time with them any chance I can get!
I live in the Rocky Mountains at 8,000 ft. An Athlete from the get-go; rock climbing, skiing, mountain biking, tennis, and skateboarding are some of the sports I love, next to my passion for the world of Ninja.
After registering for a Ninja Class at a local rec center over 3 years ago and watching American Ninja Warrior on TV, I have been competing passionately ever since. I'm also very proud to be on the Ninja Intensity team. Determined to one day be on the show myself, this year my goal came to fruition when cast as a competitor for the first season of American Ninja Warrior Junior.
I live in Colorado, and I started gymnastics when I could walk. I started Ninja training in 2017. I train at all the ninja gyms in Colorado. I also rock climb for training. I competed on American ninja warrior jr. I am a member of the Wolfpack pro team, and compete in local and national competitions.
Hi I’m Avery! I’ve been doing ninja for 3 years and was a competitive gymnast before I started ninja! I competed on American Ninja Warrior Jr. Season 2 and in the past 2 NNL Finals. I train mostly at iCORE Fitness but I go down to Centercourt often. If I had to pick a favorite competition it would definitely be UBW. When I’m not doing ninja I do lots of handstands and flips!

I started my ninja journey competing on Season 1 of American Ninja Warrior Junior. Since then, I’ve been competing at NNL and UNAA events around the country and placed 1st at the NNL World Championship in Hartford. In addition to training as a ninja, I’m also a circus artist specializing in duo trapeze, hand balancing, acro and aerial hoop. I love being a ninja and a member of Bucket of Chalk!
I started ninja training in 2017 and didn’t do very well at my first Ultimate Backyard Warrior competition when I was 12. But I caught the ninja bug and wanted to get better. So, I stepped up my training and became a student of the sport. I ended up in the top 10 at NNL finals 5 months later. I was introduced as “The Bathrobe Ninja” on seasons 1&2 of ANWJR (making it to the semifinals both years). Since then I finished:
UNAA Finals: #10 (13&under) 2018, #3 (13&under) in 2019 AWG Finals: #1 (11-13) 2019, #2 (14-16) 2020 NNL Finals: #9 (13-14) and #6 (Strongest Ninja) in 2020 This year, I’m competing as a “pro” in each of the leagues I compete in.
I am homeschooled and work as a ninja coach at Rock Solid Warrior in NC.
