Ninjas, Ninjas, Ninja training

Ninja Warrior!
This is a new show that me and my family watch, after browsing the programs and stumbling upon this: On the G4 cable network, a Japanese television game show called Ninja Warrior test many skills, such as...
Balance, rope climbing, jumping, holding on for dear life, and such.
Up to 100 people can join each time, whether you have skill or not.

It really is very interesting. There are 4 different levels, 3 is seen as "extremly difficult" and 4 is known as "nearly impossible."

So far, from the episodes that we've seen, there is no known prize at the end of this game. Maybe it's just the pride of being know as a Ninja Warrior, when hardly anyone gets past the second stage?

Enjoy, no? =3

Oh, and. This show has been running for quiet some time now. I think 7 years?

Here is Mr. Octopus, age 56 (he's tried out many times and has never gotten past the first stage >_<).

Ninja Warrior, Makoto Nagano (34) is the second person to ever beat the Sasuke course out of 2,400 people.

Dear Meyume... I've missed you and your usually accurate posts.
Some trivia for you...
Where is the birth place of the Ninja in Japan?
Clue: It's about 3 hours (by train) away from Japan's home of the F1.

According to the Ninja village, where was the art originally adopted from?

Included are some pictures from the Ninja village. First from my friend's phone during a demonstration and the second is from my visit.
