American Ninja Warrior – Try Out

American Ninja Warrior is the U.S. version of the Japanese obstacle course competition known as Sasuke.

Competitors compete on a number of difficult obstacles, with the top finishers getting the chance to take on an American replica of Mount Midoriyama, which is an obstacle course so tough, no American has ever completed all four stages and only a handful of Japanese men ever have.

Given that only two women have ever completed even the qualifying course (as of the most recent episode), I don’t have any delusions about actually getting on the show, but I think it would be fun to try out.

I will update my blog when I am ready to begin training for my tryout.
