This is a series of obstacle courses in Japan. The first two stages are timed. Few people ever get past the third stage, despite being untimed, due to the immense difficulty. The final stage is just insane, requiring competitors to climb about 70 ft in 30 seconds. Only two people have ever completed the course.

This is one of them.

Wow.

I guess that's why it's called NINJA WARRIOR! (in the US anyway)

If you have Digital cable or Dish, you can watch this on the G4 channel. It is quite an entertaining show.

Wow! See, if this was the kind of thing they did in the Olympics, I'll bet more people would watch them.

I've recently become obsessed with the Viking: Ultimate Obstacle Course on ESPN...

Now I'll have to hunt for this

Why the hell hasn't an American network jumped all over this and made an American version (in America)? It could be pretty big I think.

The U.S. is dropping the ball on obstacle course programming! shake
