Here we have competitor Jason, age 22, South Korea now in San Diego.
Athletic background? I do not really have much athletic background. But, I started training myself at age around 18 with only bars and body weight (aka. calisthenics). I like to run obstacle races such as Rugged Maniacs, Spartan Races, Terrain Races, etc.
How long obstacle course training? I’m a new ninja. About a year since at the end of 2015
Why obstacle training? I always want to challenge myself to the limit. When I first visited MROC Army (obstacle course gym) at Oceanside, I had no difficulty accomplishing obstacles haha and they were really entertaining me a lot.
Why compete? Motivation? Obstacle training is now my passion and I know I pull off something out of it and I want to show people that a Korean guy can become a ninja too haha and I really want to be on the ANW show to compete with others
Favorite obstacle? Anything dealing with upper body 🙂 Least favorite obstacle? rolling log or any tough balancing obstacle
Personal interests (movies, hobbies, music, books, charities, etc.)? I like to play basketball and piano
Something interesting about you? I still go to college at UCSD and I’m a pharmacological chemistry student 🙂
Motto or how you live your life? “do not rush and be relaxed”
Piece of advice for obstacle course training. I have somewhat natural grip strength so I use captain of crush (COC) grippers to make my even strength stronger. I think COC grippers are really useful to build stronger grip strength. This really helps for any obstacles dealing with grip strength. Also, I think pull-up is the best for building upper body strength. You have to be lean and strong in order to be better ninja
