The Ninjas who will take on the Kansas City course are shaping up

The casting calls have started!

American Ninja Warrior last visited Kansas City in season seven. It was the course where Isaac Caldiero would start his march to the top of Mt. Midoriyama.

In season seven, the location drew many of the Denver area competitors, such as the Wolfpack, including Brian Arnold.

Now, in short order the show will return there for season nine. The Los Angeles Qualifiers have been taped and San Antonio is just days away.

These hard-working Ninjas just found out they have a few weeks left for final preparations before it’s their turn in the spotlight.
