Ninja Warrior Levi Meeuwenberg coming to AADL

Levi MeeuwenbergLevi Meeuwenberg

Sasuke is an irresistable Japanese television event that happens twice a year. 100 competitors take on a brutal 4-stage obstacle course. In the 20 times the contest has been held, the course has only been completed twice. Sasuke now airs in the US as Ninja Warrior on G4, and for the past two Sasuke competitions, G4 has selected American contenders (via the American Ninja Challenge) to travel to Japan to appear on the show alongside the Japanese competitors. Both times, Ann Arbor has been represented in Japan; last fall, Ann Arbor native and Michigan State student Colin Bell appeared on the show, but failed on the Spider Jump of the first stage. This spring, Traverse City native and current Ann Arbor Resident Levi Meeuwenberg traveled to Japan and outlasted all the Japanese competitors to be the last man standing!

Levi is a freerunning (Parkour) expert; he's appeared in commercials, music videos, and toured with Madonna. His performance on Ninja Warrior was flat-out awesome and he is certain to be back in the fall to attempt the daunting course again. AADL is very proud to welcome Levi to the Downtown Library on Monday, June 9 at 7 PM to talk about his experiences as a freerunner, stunt double, and his trip to Japan. Levi is a class act and we're thrilled to bring him to you! Hope to see you there!

UPDATE: Levi's event was fantastic and 160 people showed up to see him! The event was recorded and is available online here.

NEW UPDATE: Levi is coming back to AADL on September 26 at 7 PM, this time with members of the UM Parkour club and more of a focus on Freerunning! Details here.

but you are entitled to your opinion and thats kool with me, just try and stray away from the parkour subject on my birthday unless its a posative comment.


Seeing lain's comment gave me the mental image of lain himself trying to parkour, and THAT is something to laugh about. :-P

Dang! I haven't commented since the first podcast. How are you guys? I wan't to see Levi. Is he really good? I saw a commercial on him doing some wicked stunts. I am clueless about who he is and what shows he's on but, I think the commercial tells it all.

So Im gonna be there. Johninabox is really exited to see him. He posted alot of comments <_< See ya then.

12 more hours....4 more hours...


that was sooo kool!!!!


id have to agree with you, even if i didnt want to *_&


You guys got way too excited over this...
also i have to agree with lain on the subject of parkour... its just like lacrosse, its for ppl who are too soft to do a real sport.

Can't stop the B00M! You can only try to contain it! -- B00M!


oh its on now.... i wanna see you try to freerun.... let alone parkour.

that would be a funny sight,

let me play it out for you.

act one you jump
act two you fall
act three you cry
final act you keep crying
FIN.


lol id like to see you play a real sport
Act 1 your on the bench
Act 2 your on the bench
Act 3 your on the bench
final act your still on the bench
Tutu 2 good 4 u B00M! -- LMK22
Can't stop the B00M! You can only try to contain it! -- B00M!


This is the other way it could play out

Act1 you try out
Act 2 you get cut
Act 3 you lie to yourself
Act 4 you become a free runner
