Team Ninja prides itself as not falling into the groove of only participating in one type of event/race. In fact it's against our motto: Get up and do something new! So, you will see some typical road races and obstacle course races (OCRs), but you also find some boot camps, parkour jams, TKD workouts, MMA fights, rock climbing, bike rides, cookouts, and anything else that we can think will be fun.
