THE NINJA WARRIOR MOST EXTREME YOUTH CHALLENGE:

On saturday I took my youth group to a local karate dojo that I rented out. I had met with the instructor there prior and put together a bunch of games. 55 to be exact. We met at 2 and ended at 5 and played around 12 or so games.

IT WAS AWESOME. we had team challenges, strength challenges and full on combat. Let me tell you this was such a cool time and the kids loved every minute of it. Because we didn’t get to even half of the games we are going to be doing it again in a few months.

I knew it would be cool, but I didn’t think that cool. I love pugel stick fighting.

I have been hinting for a little while about something big I am doing with my youth group.  Announcing The Ninja Warrior Most Extreme Youth Event. So your thinking “What the Heck is that!”. Well on march 29th, for 3 hours, our youth groups. Grounded and Settled (sr high) and Spark! (jr high) are meeting at a local karate dojo that we rented. The event is inspired by American Gladiators and Ninja Warrior. It is a full scale competition. We will have pugel stick matches…those are the giant Q-tips. We will be doing obstacle courses, bo staff fighting, king of the mountain style matches, board breaking, Knife fighting, grappling matches, sword fighting and a ton more. There are 30 games planned.

This will be the ultimate Youth event of all time. We are sure to have some casualties, but I think it will be worth it.
