I am the furthest thing from a ninja: I'm not good at tiptoeing, I've never used a sword, and I don't wear hoodies because I'm genuinely afraid of the dark. Besides watching Jean-Claude Van Damme movies during my childhood, I have little knowledge of the karate kind. So when I got the call to try out the famed "American Ninja Warrior" course in Las Vegas, I was beyond worried about how I should prep.
This was a course borrowed from the Japanese that no American had ever completed, a playground for men as strong as steel and as silent as secrets. Sure, I'd competed on some courses during my tenure at a Real World/Road Rules Challenge, but this was the Olympics for ninjas, not tug-of-war against a hung-over Trishelle or CT.
With only a few days' notice, I didn't have time to prepare myself fully for ninja-ing (that would take decades of training); but I did everything in my power to make the most of my sudden "American Ninja Warrior" opportunity.
De-hair myself. Ninjas are the sphinxes of the human kingdom. Start with the legs and work your way up. Remember, if the razor doesn't work, you can always wax on, wax off!
