Heyburn's 'Tatted Ninja' leads children through ninja nights

HEYBURN, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) The Mini-Cassia Community Christian Church, M4C, will be offering Ninja Nights obstacle training with Terry Lamb, also known as the "Tatted Ninja."

Fourth through ninth graders are invited to complete a series of jumping, balancing, crawling, pushing and wall climbing tasks guided by Lamb himself.

“It’s an endurance sport, but it’s also a mental grit. You have to remember if you don’t let go for two more seconds you can make it through anything and just keep going,” Lamb said.

In 2008, Lamb experienced a life-threatening car accident. Doctors told him at the age of 26 he will be in a wheelchair.

“I shattered my eye sockets, shattered my cheekbones, nose, and jaw, broke two vertebrae in my neck, three in my lower back,” he said.

Now, at the age of 29, Lamb competes in the most rigorous obstacle training courses in the country. He wanted to show the children that with great determination, anything is possible.

“Keep the momentum, keep that hunger, and to keep trying to pay it forward to share with other people. It’s a blessing for me,” he said.

Since moving to Idaho in 2015, he said he’s received overwhelming support from the community and will hopefully share his experience worldwide. Lamb had submitted a video to be considered for NBC’s "American Ninja Warrior."

“I’m not just doing it for me, I’m doing it because of the response I’m getting from the community and other people,” he said.

The training sessions will be held every Monday night at 5:30 p.m. The cost will be $15 for each fourth through ninth grader with an additional family member $5.
