"What is the sport of Ninja?"

The up-and-coming sport, Ninja Obstacles, is designed to challenge and enhance overall athleticism. Centered on developing strength, balance, and muscle endurance, this sport utilizes obstacles and intricate courses. Similar to various activities, Ninja compels individuals to push their physical and mental limits.

"Who is Ninja for?"

Ninja appeals to a broad audience, much like other recreational activities such as gymnastics or rock climbing. It is an enjoyable sport suitable for gaining new skills while maintaining fitness. Many of our members use Ninja as a complementary training method for other sports, while others approach it as a dedicated sport, training multiple times a week. At Ultimate Ninja Gym, we cater to both types of enthusiasts.

"There is no way that me or my children can do that."

Embracing the label of a family-friendly environment, we accommodate individuals of all physical levels and experiences. Many of our members initially believed Ninja was beyond their reach, only to discover it as a delightful path to fitness—not a skill one must naturally possess. We extend a warm invitation to you and your family to explore the exhilarating possibilities Ninja has to offer. Give it a try and witness firsthand the joy and potential it holds for everyone.

UNAA Ninja Coach Level 2 Certified

I grew up doing all of the bigger sports, basketball, football, and baseball. I even did martial arts. But once I found Parkour and Ninja obstacles, I loved it. After joining, I got to do things that you only see on T.V. or movies. Vaulting, climbing, and flipping brings out an amazing feeling.


I am excited to bring that feeling to the ABQ area through Ultimate Ninja Gym. Hopefully everyone in the area can enjoy some type of vaulting, climbing, flipping, or just getting that happy feeling when you complete a goal in our gym.


I live with my fiance, dog, & 2 cats here in the land of enchantment.


I look forward to the growth of the gym and the sport. I know we all want Ninja obstacles to become a mainstream sport just like basketball, football, or baseball. See you at the gym!

Kids Coach, Adult Coach
UNAA Ninja Coach Level 2 Certified

Hi, I'm Ithan Valentino, and I've had the incredible opportunity to coach individuals of all ages and skill levels, from toddlers taking their first steps in ninja to athletes striving for greatness and competing in world level events. With two+ years of experience under my belt, I've developed the ability to inspire and motivate others, helping them reach their full potential.

While I've explored various sports like baseball, basketball, swimming, gymnastics, martial arts, and soccer, it was my encounter with ninja and parkour that truly captured my heart. The adrenaline rush and the freedom of movement in these disciplines have completely hooked me, and I've dedicated myself to constantly pushing my limits.

In addition to my athletic pursuits, I've been immersed in the world of robotics for over a decade. The combination of technology and innovation has always fascinated me. Through robotics, I've developed problem-solving abilities and a creative mindset that positively impacts all aspects of my life.

On top of my athletic and technical pursuits, I'm also eagerly pursuing a career in acting and film. I believe that my unique blend of athleticism and creativity can make a significant impact in the entertainment industry. With each new challenge and opportunity, I continue to push the boundaries of my potential!

Sami Schuh-

Kids Coach
UNAA Ninja Coach Level 2 Certified

I grew up in Washington state doing martial arts and hip hop. When I moved to New Mexico, I found out about the sport of ninja and fell in love. I’ve been competing within the sport of ninja for the past 6 years now and have won the UNAA finals 3 times. I started coaching in 2020 and quickly realized that I found my passion. Pushing people of all ages to the best they can be is what I’m striving for as a coach. Going over mental and physical barriers is what the sport of ninja is all about, and having fun!

I’m also an avid runner and rocker climber! I’m hoping to pursue sports management in college next year and continue helping others be the best they can be.

I have been working with kids since I was young. It started with aiding my mother with her 1st grade class and extended into babysitting when I was in High School. I enjoyed creating fun games to get the kid's energy out and very quickly learned the value of exercise. I had the revelation that working out doesn't need to be boring!

I've gotten involved in west coast swing dancing this past year, and just recently extended my reach towards ninja training. I look forward to meeting the community and learning as much as I can about this sport!

I grew up skiing, windsurfing, rock climbing, and racing Motocross. But once I discovered Ninja obstacles, I was hooked.


So I started the UNAA- Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association, a World Wide competition series with over 120 participating gyms across the Globe.


Now I want to bring that passion to Albuquerque with Ultimate Ninja Obstacle Gym!


I have a Coaching Level 2 certification from New Mexico State University, with studies in Nutrition, health science, Action Personal Trainer Certification and sports officiating. I also created the UNAA Ninja Coach Certification with 5 other certified professionals.



I work full time at PLAYWELL in Albuquerque as a sales and design consultant for playgrounds, shade structures and outdoor fitness equipment. Married to Felicia Clark, with 3 Children ( all married) and 3 grandkids…. so far…


I want to see Ninja obstacle competition become a real certified worldwide sport and pursue Ninja obstacle competition inclusion in the Olympics and I have a desire to use UNAA as a platform to help accomplish that.
