Can Kids Try American Ninja Warrior?

Premiered on June 12, 2017 on NBC, the ninth season of American Ninja Warrior, a competition show in which athletes wind their way through a complex obstacle course, drew a 1.6 rating in Nielsen’s 18-49 demo with its last week’s episode, according to live-plus same day numbers, hitting a season high.

“People never seem to get tired of seeing ordinary people – both men and women alike – do extraordinary things,” says Arthur Smith, whose A. Smith and Co. produces the series. “The show has proved a model that sports entertainment can play really well to a broad audience,” he says. “There’s something that is in the DNA of ‘Ninja’ that’s special and relatable to people of all ages and all walks of life and that is why it has become true family entertainment.”

When watching the show, we’re always excited and dream to try, even though our young kids. However, can Kids try American Ninja Warrior?

Unfortunately, NO. Participants for American Ninja Warrior must be at least 21 years old, which means kids are never qualified for the contest, according to the game rules which is set considering children’s physical and mental condition.

Then what should parents do to satisfy kids’ adventure and challenge desire? There’s a good choice—Take them to challenge JP’s High Ropes Obstacle Course.

What Makes a World Champion?

Sun Yang, China's world-record-holding swimmer, claimed the men's 200 meters freestyle title at the 17th FINA World Championships in Budapest on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.

He clocked 1:44.39, having won the men's 400 meters freestyle title on Sunday. Sun also took the gold in the men's 200m freestyle at the Rio Olympics last year, with a final time of 1:44.65.

Born in 1991, Sun is not young as a swimming athlete, but he won the championship, so what makes a world champion? Learning from not only Sun Yang, also Kobe Bean Bryant, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, Roger Federer, Serena Jameka Williams etc., we can get some answers as following:

1)       Aim
“Every French soldier carries a marshal\'s baton in his knapsack”, as Napoléon Bonaparte said, every championship winner has his aim one after one before he becomes the No. 1, to guide and drive him or her to go forward.

"I'm already in the ranks of the top swimmers, and now working hard to be a great athlete," said Sun Yang in the interview before the 17th FINA World Championships. With this goal, he spares no efforts in the competition.

2)       Practice
Practice makes perfect. No one was born to be a winner and even genius should learn to conquer his world, while practices is the only way to step to the top of the mountain that you want to conquer.

Kobe ever said he got up as early as 4 am to practice, and that’s why he could do it better. Kobe’s philosophy makes himself a real genius except for his talent.

 JP Development

3)       Persistence
When you ask any champion whether he or she was smooth on the way to success, it’s supposed that no one would answer you “yes, I’m lucky enough to be smooth.” However, what makes them stick to their career and endure the hardships? That’s the personality-PERSISTENCE.

Xu Jiayu, who won China’s 1st 100 backstroke world champs ever, said in the post-race interview in 17th FINA World Championships, “My everyday is hard, but I carry on.” He said training was tired, and sometimes while he was training in water, he have to come out to vomit several times and then go back to swim. It’s his persistence that sends him to the top position of Men’s 100m backstroke.

 JP Development

4)       Love
Interest is the best teacher. When you love to do something, you’re like to do it good; while when you hate to do something, you’re sure to do it worse. Every world champion regards his career as his lover, and the love support him to go forward without hesitation.

Pele, the greatest football player of all time, ever told the public it’s his love for football that makes him the success in football play. No one would deny his love and passion’s role in their success in his career.

 JP Development

There’re many other factors that make a world champion: endurance, confidence, ambition, etc. We are not able to tell whether a child will be a champion of certain fields in the future, but we can cultivate their spirit to prepare for any championship now.

JP supply various equipment to train kids’ spirit of adventure, teambuilding, problem-solving etc., and if you plan to start your career in kids’ educational entertainment, feel free to inquire. 


Climb A Skyscraper: London’s 62-Story Office Glass Climbing Wall

In the age of startup companies and culture, perks of the office are a big factor these days. Beyond the typical ping-pong table, catered lunches, gym memberships and snacks, some offices offer even more outlandish perks to entice companies and employees for added benefits.

One such office building is doing just that in London. The Twentytwo building, currently under construction, is a 62-story tower in the middle of the city that will offer some top-notch perks. The most incredible of them all will be a glass climbing wall that will offer spectacular views of London from 410 feet above the ground on the 25th floor.

This is by no means the first glass climbing wall in the world, but it will be the first in London and highlights how prominent climbing gyms have truly become. Entrants will be able to climb routes fixed on clear glass planes overlooking the city and expansive drop. Clearly, this isn’t a great option for those afraid of heights! But for climbers looking to work off some stress after a hard day’s work, the indoor wall with towering views could be a blast.

With a scheduled opening in 2019, you can bet that there will be a few people who take jobs in offices within Twentytwo specifically to get their climb on during lunch, which can be regarded as a good rest activity. However, before it opens, how could you climb a skyscraper to have a stress release?

There’s a good option for you—to climb JP’s Lighted Building Climbing Wall which mimics skyscraper, a fun climbing wall can be built indoor and outdoor and size can be customized.

Apart from this, JP also offers other interesting climbing wall for you to build in your climbing gym. If interested, please feel free to contact us.

Head of Each Department all gave a summary of their work and future plans.

Then, the Awarding part came. Ten Model Employees, two Champion Employees, two Excellent Employees, one Excellent Team and one Champion Team were awarded honors and prizes respectively. And to our excitement, we, International Project Department, won the honor of Champion Team.

In the afternoon, every team demonstrated his demeanor and morale officially. And we take part in a team building program, Power Circle, to build up the whole team’s cohesion. Then, we go to visit our project case built in the park.

This summary meeting was fruitful: we found our problems, celebrated our achievements, came up with guidelines, and prepared ourselves for the following battles. It’s an end of the first half of 2017, and a new start of the next half of the year. COME ON, EVERY ONE.
