On Saturday, February 10, dozens of Ninjas descended upon AZ on the Rocks in Scottsdale, AZ. They were there with just one thing on their minds: The American Ninja Warrior fans.
When the ANW Experience cancelled its events, the Ninjas banded together to create an alternative event for fans near Phoenix. AZ on the Rocks opened their doors to host a meet-and-greet followed by a competition.
The event was a heartfelt example of the Ninja community. We’re going to let the Ninjas and the fans tell you about it themselves through this sort-of digital scrapbook we’ve created!
We are extremely thankful for the generosity of the American Ninja Warriors who came out to AZ and to AZ On The Rocks for hosting such a neat event today! Hearing the disappointing news of the ANW event being cancelled earlier this week was sad, but these kiddos got to enjoy a rare, up-close-and-personal experience of a lifetime and they will cherish this day forever! These Ninjas were all extremely humble, down-to-earth humans & have inspired the next generation to bust through obstacles, overcome fears & accomplish anything you put your mind to!

The Phoenix & San Diego American Ninja Warrior Experience may have been a bust but these Ninjas still made it happen for all us fans somehow. I got to meet all my favorite American Ninja Warriors. You all are an inspiration in making the impossible happen. I hope someday I will stand among you as an American Ninja Warrior. #thankyou #dreambig #azontherocks #jessiegraff #maggithorne #drewdrechsel #barclaystockett #fliprodriguez #wolfpackninjas #sandiegoparkour #anw #anwnation #americanninjawarrior

@youngflip7 @sweett_02 @reallifeninja @adamrayl @jessiegraffpwr @iandory @noahkaufmanmd @wolfpackninjas @sparklyninja @papalninja #ninjasrock So, I again can't thank the ninja community and Az on the Rocks enough for the amazing experience today. This event saved a little boy's birthday gift. Today was super special for us, it was the 4 year anniversary of my last chemo. I kicked breast cancer's ass. The reason that's significant is that my recovery from chemo, radiation and the ensuing 2 years of a reconstruction road is how we discovered ANW. We will be watching this season.... Can't wait to cheer you guys on!!!!
