I am not a Ninja Warrior
Who the what now?
Ninja Warrior (aka Sasuke) is one in a long tradition of Japanese shows in which contestants' physical strength is put to extreme tests. Think Endurance, Viking, or Takeshi's Castle without the comedy.
Basically, it goes like this:
There are four stages, each one an obstacle course of fiendish, sadistic design. To finish a stage requires endurance, balance, coordination, and the upper and lower body strength of an Olympic gymnast.
Around 95% of contestants fail to finish stage one. Only two, including Nagano, have made it to the end.
Okay. Now that you have some background, watch this. I dare you to be unimpressed.
And now, if you'll excuse me, I must complete my own exercise workout. I have a pile of chocolate digestives to dunk in tea.
