Blog on Ninja Warrior by Steven Christopher

Full disclosure: we have now seen the Ninja Warrior centre on Samui but have not tackled the actual obstacle course yet. Reason ? It looks way to tough !
Claire and I spotted this while cycling recently.
The obstacle course and activity centre is set up the hillside next to where the lovely 9 hole golf course has nestled into the hills for as long as I can remember.
This looks like a challenge very much aiming for fit young men in a holiday group and it pulls no punches at all.
Our young teenagers watch the televised bouts of Ninja Warrior and confirm that the course on Samui looks every bit the same size and toughness as the official competition course.
Certainly up close it looks very daunting.
This looks like a perfect challenge for our older son (17 years old and an avid rugby player) and tailor made to give him and his friends a talking point on their next trip to Samui.
I am sad to say that, the only challenging activity on that hillside which I am likely to be taking on are the nine holds of the golf course, I will leave the Ninja Warrioring and Zorbing to the younger crew.
I will report as soon as I've seen anyone take the callenge and would love to hear from anyone else who's seen it in action.
