Ninja Please!

My sister is obsessed with Japan, and this means she searches out everything Japanese. This summer she found Ninja Warrior. Basically, various people from around the world come to compete in this crazy obstacle course, and whoever can complete it in time is crowned Ninja Warrior. It's a lot of fun, and Rob and I are determined to someday build our own Ninja Warrior course out on our 26 acres. When we do, we'll be sure to invite everyone to try it out, and maybe we'll even hold our own contest. But this video is of the 2nd guy to achieve Ninja Warrior status- enjoy!

  1. Holy upper body strength, Batman! When my brother and I were little, our dream was to grow up and become ninjas! That guy is AWESOME.

  2. I love obstacle courses. You guys should definately build one. This reminds me of that old school show gladiators. Loved it. I think I could do it.

  4. Wow...that guy totally deserved to win the award. He is ALL Ninja and then some. My favorite part is when the announcer starts screaming at the end. So funny!

  5. Eh, that's not so hard. I do that same thing every weekend. :) Actually that was amazing. I'm not obsessed with Japan, but I am obsessed with martial arts and - by default - ninjas. I would love to be that guy...CRAZY! I think it's cool how he climbs up the walls like that, but what I'D really like to do is that log roll in the very beginning of the video! Thanks for sharing.

  6. That reminds me of the obstacle courses we used to build with Brandon in the backyard. Oh, wait, ours consisted of a little tikes basketball hoop laid on its side and a couple lawn chairs. I guess that's why we're not ninjas.
