Kids from around the St. Louis region will have the chance to train with nine contenders from NBC’s hit television show “American Ninja Warrior”, including several competing on the current Season 11.
Ultimate Ninjas is hosting three sessions of its Pro Camp II on September 14 and 15 at its gym in Chesterfield, where participants will learn from some of the best obstacle course racers in the world and train on the same obstacles on “American Ninja Warrior”. Each 2.5-hour camp includes time for participants to ask questions about the show and watch the ninjas tackle the obstacles.
Confirmed American Ninja Warriors to take part are Jamie Rahn (Captain NBC), Jesse “Flex” Labreck, Kirsti Pratt (The Machine), Michael Torres, Chris DiGangi, Mike Silenzi (The Stallion), Ethan Swanson (The Daredevil), Tiana Webberley, and Justin Cranmer.
“Ultimate Ninjas coaches, managers, and members are having a really exciting run on Season 11 of ‘American Ninja Warrior’,” said Jamie Rahn, new general manager of Ultimate Ninjas St. Louis. “So far on the show, eight of our ninjas have made it through the City Qualifiers to compete in the City Finals. It will be so exciting for area kids to meet and train with the American Ninja Warrior heroes they’ve been watching on TV.”
Ultimate Ninjas St. Louis provides an authentic “American Ninja Warrior” experience, with obstacles identical to the show, such as the jumping spider, salmon ladder, and a four-level warped wall to accommodate all skill levels — including the 14-foot, 6-inch wall used by the pros.
Ultimate Ninjas St. Louis offers open gym, kids obstacle course training classes, birthday parties, summer and school break camps, corporate team building, and private events.
