The Ring Toss is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the fifth obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 6 in Dallas.
It consisted of three sections of pegs and two rings at the start of the first section. The first section was angled upward with six peg, the second section was angled downward with five pegs, and the third section was angled upward with four pegs. Competitors must hold on to the rings and use them to traverse the pegs, until they could reach the landing platform.
Some competitors carelessly dropped one of the ring and were forced to leap from where they were towards the landing mat. During Dallas qualifiers, the obstacle took out several competitors, including Jonathan Horton and most shockingly, Brent Steffensen.
The second version of the Ring Toss (called as the Modified Ring Toss), firstly introduced as the fourth obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 7 in Kansas City.
It consisted of three sections like the original Ring Toss, but instead of all the pegs being on the competitors' right side, the pegs were placed on an alternated sides, allowing the competitors to face the direction when moving. In this version, the first section had three pegs, the second section had four pegs, and the third section had three pegs.
During Kansas City finals, the obstacle took out Dan Polizzi, when the ring came off as he tried to swing over to the next peg.
Ninja Warrior UK
The Ring Toss appeared as the fifth obstacle on Ninja Warrior UK (in Heat 4 and Heat 5) and Ninja Warrior UK 2 (in Heat 5), with three sections and each section had five pegs. The first section was angled upward, the second section was straight, and the third section was angled downward.
On SASUKE Ninja Warrior Indonesia, the Ring Toss appeared as the third obstacle during Final Stage. However, unlike on American Ninja Warrior and Ninja Warrior UK, there were only 2 sections, with 5 pegs in each section and all the sections were placed straight, as well as smaller rings. This version of the Ring Toss was proven to be much easier, as no competitor failed on this obstacle.

Ninja Training 101: Obstacle Variation

For the Spiritual Ninja, variety is the spice of life.

Krav Maga - Getting Up Off the Ground (Obstacle Behind You Variation)

After a student learns how to get up off the ground, a question that occasionally comes up is What do you do if there's a wall behind you?

This video offers two variations to getting up off your back or side that work despite having an obstacle behind you.

Additional videos and information about our self defense, fighting, and fitness programs are available at

The videos on this YouTube channel are NOT a replacement for actual instruction. They do not teach techniques, but instead isolate and fix problems within the technique or its individual components. The videos are designed to help the student who has already learned the technique under the instruction of a qualified instructor.

Important Note: These videos are specific to the techniques and curriculum taught to the students at our facility. Students from other Krav Maga schools and organizations are more than welcome to watch and use these videos and we hope they find them useful! However, variations may be taught that are different from the techniques taught at other Krav Maga locations. This doesn't mean one variation is wrong or the other is right. They are just variations...plain and simple. The most important question for any technique or defense should be this: Does it work for the individual who is performing it? As long as it does, then the technique or variation has merit, regardless of where it comes from! That's the number one principle that we emphasize at our school.


This is Randall and Glenda with In this video we're going to go over how to get up. However, we're going to show you guys how to modify that in case there's something behind you like a wall, in this case a shelf, or an obstacle. This question actually comes up a lot when we start doing a lot of live training with getting up off the ground. Our students are training. They tend to get pinned up against the wall and they realize that they can't do the normal get up.

Now let me first explain what that problem is and demonstrate it. So, we're going to use the shelf as an example. For whatever reason, I end up on the ground, whether it's on my back, on my side, whatever. Glenda's playing the role of the bad guy. So here's the problem is I create enough space by kicking her away, I try to do the usual get up, 'uh oh'. Here's the problem. I'm crashing into this shelf, or if I had to do it up against this wall, there's nowhere for me to go. So this is obviously an issue.

Now the solution for this is pretty simple. I'm going to give you guys two solutions.

The first one is this. Normally, after I create space, when we get up we're taught to angle this foot back, like this, and then loop it around like this. So you're kind of making a 'C' shape like this or like a half circle. But the problem is when we do this, 'oop', my foot hits the shelf, there's nowhere for me to go. A wall or car or whatever it is.

So the solution to this is not to go straight back, but it's to angle off. So you can visualize the shelf extending all the way down in this direction. No problem. This is what I do is, as I'm getting up, this foot just continues this path of angeling back. So I get rid of the looping part back. Angle straight back. Now I can get up and notice that I didn't run out of real estate.

I'll give you guys a different perspective here upon this wall. I'm like this. I create space. I try to get up. 'Oops', there's the problem. So here we go. Get up. Watch how this foot angles in this direction. I can still get up. No problem. I'm not crashing into the wall that's behind me. So that's the easiest solution.

If you want to get a little more tactical about it. Especially, when you're sparring, here's a little trick that you can use that I've done sparring as well.

So, Glenda is going to be the bad guy. And a lot of times the bad guy won't just stay directly in front of you. As you guys know, a lot of times they will try to flank you. They'll try to move around. So let's say Glenda moves this way, obviously, I need to turn that way. But, it should also be an opportunity for you to try and get up. So if I see her angling out, I'll kick and create that space and see if I can get up off of that. Because the angle changed, I can actually use the regular get up by moving off to the side.

So that's a little, yeah, it's getting a little bit more advanced but it's something you can try out, especially when you're partner is offering you resistance. Whether it's with a shield and they're trying to move around with you or if you actually got sparring gear on and you're trying to replicate those drills...

Is there a 'what if' you can't figure out while practicing a technique or defense? Let us know what it is and we'll make a video with a solution for you!

Jump day - obstacle course (outdour parkour)

Work out in Greece:

Lately I have been working on improving my precision long-jumps from a static position. Yesterday we built a track which consisted of many tree stumps. The aim was to go (or jump) as far as possible without touching the ground. In places where the distance was too far we put a log or other odd object to step on. In this video you can see the longest track we managed to build.

It was great fun and a superb workout :)
