Geoff, an art teacher and basketball coach by day, has been training as a ninja warrior for the past 4 years. A self-taught ninja, he began his ninja warrior journey by training at local playgrounds and indoor rock climbing gyms. He and his children began traveling long distances to compete in ninja competitions and soon realized that the playgrounds and climbing gyms didn’t provide enough ninja-like obstacle for them to gain the experience they needed. Instead of traveling 3 hours to train at the closest ninja gym, he built a small ninja warrior training course in his backyard. Last year, Geoff realized a dream and was selected to compete on season 9 of American Ninja Warrior in Cleveland, Ohio. Born with a heart defect and living with the aid of a pacemaker, he competed as “The Bionic Ninja.”
Geoff’s excited to bring his knowledge and experience to the Saratoga Ninja Lab. If he isn’t instructing one of the many ninja classes offered, you’ll probably see him at “The Lab” training with his two kids. He believes anyone can be a ninja and knows the Capital Region is full of talented ninjas just waiting to be discovered.
