ANWJKaden Forsha, a fourth-grader at Ute Meadows Elementary and this summer got to live his dream! He loves the hit TV show “American Ninja Warrior” and doing ninja training, so his dream has always been to be on the TV show. This summer, he was cast in the first season of American Ninja Warrior Junior which will be premiering on October 13 on Universal Kids!

When he first heard there was going to be an American Ninja Warrior Junior and that he was just barely old enough to apply he was ecstatic! He started dancing around the room and begging his mom to let him do it. Kaden and his family worked very hard on the application and the six submission videos they got to submit. Then, they waited, and waited, and waited. They finally got the call saying Kaden was accepted to the show and couldn’t believe it!

Even though he was excited and nervous, Kaden knew he was ready because he has been training his whole life for this! In the weeks before the show, he even stepped up his training schedule to make sure he was at my strongest. It takes a lot of work to be a ninja!

Kaden and his family flew out to LA to film the show, which has two kids run the same obstacle course in a side-by-side race. It was an amazing experience! Kaden’s favorite part was making friends with all the kid ninjas and getting to hang out with the adult ninjas.

Kaden feels very lucky to have been chosen for the show. There were three age groups, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14. Around 10,000 kids applied to be on the show and only 64 kids per age group were chosen.

Be sure to check out the Universal Kids Network so you can watch Kaden and see how he does against these other amazing kid ninjas! If you have “on demand” you can search for American Ninja Warrior Junior and start watching clips of the ninjas, Laurie Hernandez’s run (which has Kaden in it) and other cool snippets. In the meantime, keep your eyes open for some of the commercials that I am in! Remember to set your DVR to record American Ninja Warrior Junior on October 13 on Universal Kids Network to see how Kaden does!
