Since its debut, NBC's "American Ninja Warrior" has been a test of strength, speed and endurance like no other. Each season, hundreds of people from across the country battle their way through a series of obstacles suspended over water. Schoolteachers, doctors and construction workers have turned out to be some of the most dominant ninjas around, which has led to the growing popularity of the sport.
