Akron's I PROMISE School students take on American Ninja Warrior Course

In line with the school's mission, it was a once in a lifetime experience for the students.

The students at LeBron James' I PROMISE school are used to being at the top. 

However on Wednesday, the school's third and fourth grade students soared to new heights as they tested out a replica of the American Ninja Warrior obstacle course. 

The visit was courtesy of the show’s host and former NFL player Akbar Gbajabiamila's debut book  “Everyone Can Be a Ninja: Find Your Inner Warrior and Achieve Your Dreams” tour- which he officially kicked off at the school. 

The students scaled an 8-foot wall, conquered arm rings, and sustained the log roll among other obstacles.
