Unless you’ve been hiding under an American Ninja Warrior rock this week, you’re probably aware that many of our super stars are out in Rockford, MI for the Rockford Ninjas 2016 competition.
The runs will kick off tonight, but before that Rockford Ninjas hosted camps for both adults and kids where participants got to learn from the legends themselves.
Little did they know we had spies in their midsts! Katherine, age 10, and her sister Madelynn, age 12, attended the youth camp and reported back on their experience.
Katherine: "I can't believe I got to touch Drew Dechsel.”
Her favorite obstacle was the rope swing to cargo net with Grant McCartney and the best advice from a Ninja was, "to go fast, safe and quiet".
Madelynn: Her favorite part of the youth camp was getting to try out some of the obstacles you see them do on the show.
Her favorite obstacle was cannonball alley with Andrew Lowes and the best advice from a Ninja was, "don't change your strategy on the day of the race.”
Excellent job, little Ninja spies!
Just kidding. We didn’t plant Katherine and Madelynn there. But we are super happy they had a great time. Thank you to their mom Sherri for sharing their experience with ANW Nation!
