Here’s the first look at ANW: Ninja vs Ninja

The crew, cast and Ninjas share what we can look forward to in this behind-the-scenes clip.

American Ninja Warrior: Ninja vs Ninja is set to premiere in just a few weeks on March 1. Now, we’ve got a first peek at the show for you!

In this behind-the-scenes video. The cast and crew of the show talk about what makes these athletes so special.

Executive producer Arthur Smith shares that it’s all about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila talk about how everyone can find a Ninja that relates to their own personal lives.

Kent Weed, Executive Producer, talks about how Ninja vs Ninja is a show that’s going to bring families together. According to sideline host Alex Curry, we can expect a lot of hype and energy from Ninja vs Ninja.

We also got a little peak at the action and heard from a few of the Ninjas themselves. Jonathan Horton and Karsten Williams are ready to go. Jesse Labreck feels right at home on the course, and gave us a look that lets us know she means business.

But she’s not the only Ninja that’s ready to do battle. Check out Larissa Cottle nailing those lachés.

More than once, we see flashes of Ninjas fighting it out on the same obstacle.

JJ Woods and Nicholas Coolridge are both going for huge dismounts at the same time.

Dan Yager and Tremayne Dortch are almost tangled together when we spot them.

This thing looks intense and dramatic. But with a dose of the human element that makes everything about American Ninja Warrior so social to the fans.

American Ninja Warrior: Ninja vs Ninja will premiere on March 1, 9/8c on USA Network. You can find a full list of all the teams competing here.
