Local ninja Lisa Parkes, affectionately dubbed Pocket Rocket on Australia Ninja warrior in 2017, has been offered a place to compete again in 2018. This time her seven year old son Diallo has also been given the chance to compete in the world ninja championship finals in New Mexcio, US, July of this year.
‘Since competing on the show in 2017 I have been obstacle racing and competing in ninja competitions almost monthly and this includes hosting competitions at Ninja Play (my latest business venture) in the industrial Estate,’ said Lisa.
Last month Lisa and her seven year old Diallo both competed in their relevant competitions and both made it into the top three qualifying for the world Titles in New Mexico.
‘We have this awesome opportunity to represent Australia in the world ninja titles,’ said Lisa.
‘I am hoping to be able to find a local sponsor to support the amazing opportunity for my son and me to compete for Australia/ Byron Bay on a global stage. ‘
Lisa has been involved in a number of local community health projects most recently as part of the Treat Yourself program that the Byron Youth Theatre was running at local High Schools.
‘A sponsorship contribution would mean a great deal to me, and my son,‘ continued Lisa.
‘I have been working towards this event for several years, and am so excited a share my journey in a hope to inspire others in achieving health and wellness in all aspects of their lives.’
