Here at Inline Skate Ninja, our mission is to give all of our students the tools they need to be more comfortable in their skates. 


Malik Lloyd is a SkateIA certified inline skating instructor, freelance photographer, and blogger in Washington, DC.

He began working for the non-profit organization DC-ICE in 2012. While attending the graduation ceremony for School Without Walls’ class of 2009, he had his inspirational encounter with Nathaniel Mills, former Olympic athlete and director of DC Inner City Excellence. After some time spent volunteering for the non-profit, the opportunity arose for a position to teach inner city children basic skating skills. Ever since he has devoted himself to encouraging effort, respect, and excellence in the spirit of Olympism.

Within 2 years he climbed to store’s managerial ladder to become department supervisor, overseeing the entire technology department as well as computer repair services. In the spring of 2012, Malik left Staples to begin his work with DC-ICE and their after school in-line skating program.
