First Ever American Ninja Warrior?

First Ever American Ninja Warrior? July 21, 2013

Have you seen American Ninja Warrior?  While not quite as good as the original Japanese version, the show is highly entertaining.

My son has quite literally been climbing the walls since he watched the show.  I think Charlie (age 7), might be the first ever American Ninja Warrior.

    Nice work scaling the walls of your house, Charlie! This gives a whole new meaning to “climbing the walls” – hope that door frame is extra-strong!

    That’s some talent! This reminds me of an interview of Jonathan Horton’s parents. Apparently he was a real climber, so they thought early on he’d be a gymnast. =)

    Strong molding! The boys just saw it with me, so I think I know what will be happening here today!

  • Yes, the molding is very old, and very strong. It is about 1.5 inches thick, so more than contractor grade molding. I think typical contractor grade would probably break. Charlie said the hardest part is hanging by your fingers, and not being able to grip and use your hand. I guess that’s what makes it more fun than the monkey bars 😉 Love that your boys are doing this too. Maybe we should put together a boys Ninja Warrior video! I’m hoping nobody here breaks anything doing these stunts!

  • Thanks Frances. That’s a very funny story about Horton climbing to the top of the pole in a department store at the age of 4. I’ll try to think about the Olympics the next time one of my kids pulls a crazy stunt like that.

  • Mary Alice

    That is incredibly strong.

    He’s so cool!
