Florida Competition 305 Ninja Showdown

For this year at a local South Florida fitness expo we saw a serious upgrade for the obstacle course! And not to discount last year's since it is an impressive mobile course that continues to get upgraded.   Unfortunately that same day was a graduation party and I ate a ridiculous amount of sushi. I still gathered my strength and was able to test the course before the athletes competed.   The event served as both a UNAA and FNL qualifier – two ninja leagues Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association and Florida Ninja League.   Ronald dominated and finished 1 st . Drew came in second and Diego came third out of all 10. Ronald only started 4 years ago, and although he didn't get the chance to compete as a walk-on last year, he came this year strong and made it to the city finals.   You can check out the pictures at our Instagram page   I didn't take any video this time, but expect more YouTube vi

So to be on the popular TV show you have to stand out among thousands of applicants, and to have a great story put together in a video of less than 3 minutes. Out of 3 submissions I did receive a call to hear more about my collapsed lung. I've always been skinny fat as a kid, playing lots of video games and eating pizza. But I didn't have enough of a story to get THE call that fellow ninjas await for every year.   This past year our family visited the Grand Canyon, so I didn't even get to cheer on my fellow ninjas live. Instead I got to cheer them on at a watch party (in case you weren't aware yet, yes they tape everything weeks before it actually airs on TV). Part of the contract is to stay secretive before the show airs, so that is why you won't see many submission videos prior to the show coming out.   Most of you have probably not seen my 3 videos, and I'll admit the clips are very similar year-to-year. However, I did have a uniqu

Welcome to Ninja For Life

In the past I had seen obstacle contests that seemed mostly like a bad joke. Then came Sasuske , which came to the US as American Ninja Warrior.   My cousin Ryan showed me a video of Kacy Catanzaro making it to the finals, and I was hooked. Not too long afterwards our friends May and Rueben threw their birthday party at a local ninja gym in Miami. I trained for 30 days and was able to do many of the obstacles, but I knew I had a long way to go.   Diet and exercise (Physical Wellness) is just one aspect of wellness, and until you find enough motivation you'll continue to slack. Once you are committed though, you'll do what it takes to master it. In my case after discovering my motivation of challenging myself by training for ninja warrior obstacle competitions, I found that mastery through a book recommendation from a fit friend.
