The most exciting show on television gets even bigger by going smaller… American Ninja Warrior Junior finally allows kids to tackle the most challenging obstacle course on the planet & show that the future generation of ninjas are ready for anything. Kids aged 9-14 square off on a head to head, side by side course for a tournament to determine the best Junior Ninjas in the country.

Host Matt Iseman is joined in the booth, as always, by Akbar Gbajabiamila. And, the newest member of the team, is a sideline reporter and Olympic Gold Medalist, Laurie Hernandez. Together, they’ll bring you all the heart-stopping action as these kids show you it isn’t the size (or age) of the ninja that matters, it’s the heart.

Catch it Saturday nights on Universal Kids!
