Middle schooler wins ninja championship

Daniel Woods, an 8th grader at Wellesley Middle School, has won the Ultimate Ninja Athletic Association World Series Championship in the 13-14 year old division. The event was held in Las Vegas over the summer.

Woods has been competing in ninja obstacle course competitions for seven years and for many years has performed obstacle training at Action Athletics and youth athletic training at Train Boston, both in Wellesley. He currently trains at Vitality Obstacle Fitness in Fall River. Qualifying for the World Series required the teen to compete and succeed in local and regional competitions.

Woods has quite a track record: He also won the World Ninja Association Championship when he was 8 in the 7-8 year old division (in Detroit). The versatile athlete was also on the TV show “American Ninja Warrior Jr.” Season #2 and placed 3rd when he was 10 (in LA).
