Last night Esquire Network dropped the premiere of its new series Team Ninja Warriora reality competition spin-off of American Ninja Warrior that watches athletes go head-to-head on obstacle courses as teams rather than individually. To prepare for what is certainly going to be some action-packed reality television, Complex's Sean Evans flew out to the Alpha Warrior Gym​ in San Antonio, Texas​ to challenge the show's star and the only female to ever complete an ANW Finals course, Kacy "Mighty Kacy" Catanzaro​. She became a social media phenomenon with her American Ninja Warrior 6 Finals run, which was viewed millions of times.

To account for the fact that Sean is neither a professional athlete nor a reigning champion of any reality-based competition, TNW gave him a 30-second head start, "which is basically nothing," he adds, "so I got my ass kicked. Naturally." Check out the clip above and be sure to catch the series from Esquire Network on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST.
