Jimmy Choi is not the only Ninja in the family.

Jimmy Choi has wowed American Ninja Warrior fans in his two seasons on the show. In season nine, we met Jimmy on the Kansas City course where we learned about his Parkinson’s diagnosis. When he returned for season 10, we learned more about the incredible work Jimmy does fundraising for the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

While Jimmy is an inspiration to so many, he has a very special inspiration in his own life. His daughter, Karina, is actually the one who got him to start Ninja training and kept him motivated.

Now it’s Karina’s turn to show off her Ninja skills. She’s an athlete on American Ninja Warrior Junior and they just released one of her heart-pounding runs. Watch her race against Sammy in the video above and try not to gasp at the conclusion. These little Ninjas have a long career ahead of them!

You can catch full episodes of American Ninja Warrior Junior on Saturdays, at 7 pm on Universal Kids.
