The Michigan native debuted in SASUKE 20 and wore #1989 as he was the #1 qualifier for the second American Ninja Challenge competition. During the tournament, he performed very well. He was able to overcome every obstacle in the First Stage and clear with an amazing 16.01 seconds on the clock, a Shin-SASUKE record at the time, and he was one of 3 people to clear the First Stage. In the Second Stage, he was again able to breeze through all of the obstacles, including the Salmon Ladder and finished with 38.5 seconds remaining, a Second Stage time record and the record for most time remaining on the clock. In that tournament, he was the only competitor to reach the Third Stage. He did well on the first three obstacles, but became fatigued on the Shin-Cliffhanger and ultimately could not land on the third ledge.

In his next attempt in SASUKE 21, he wore #99. His First Stage has become infamous and unpopular amongst SASUKE fans for his recent showboating and growing arrogance, which includes flipping off the platform before the Jumping Spider's trampoline and Soritatsu Kabe. Still, he cleared the First Stage with over 21 seconds left, which is the currently Shin-SASUKE First Stage speed record.

His third attempt was in SASUKE 22. He was given an automatic bid based on his SASUKE 20 performance, just like for SASUKE 21. There he again showed great speed, even doing a side flip before the Jumping Spider. However, when he got to the new Slider Jump, the bar was off center, and when trying to correct this, his hand hit the rails of the Slider Jump and he was only able to get one hand on the net before failing.

He then had to earn a spot like everyone else for SASUKE 23 and placed second among all other Americans in the American Ninja Warrior competition. In the tournament, he would once again fly through the course. He would onto get his revenge on the Slider Jump and cleared the First Stage with 29.20 seconds left, a new Shin-SASUKE First Stage speed record. In the Second Stage, he went on to clear the Salmon Ladder that took him out in SASUKE 21 and clear the Second Stage with the fastest time. However in the Third Stage, while getting himself up to the slanted ledge on the Cliffhanger (which he had built a replica of at home), he slipped and fell into the water. After the interview, Levi did a corkscrew flip back into the water.
