Advertisements I totally missed this when it originally aired and caught it over the weekend. The show was great but I felt like we were putting our current American Ninjas up against "former" Japanese Ninjas. I thought I read somewhere that the Japanese Ninja warrior is no longer done. So since there was nothing to train for in Japan, maybe the Japanese guys were not as ready as they should have been. If that's the case, I hope the Japanese Ninjas will now train all year like they used to and come back next year and make a real challenge out of it.
