Nicholas Coolridge is a special kind of guy. Instantly likable and humble, this quirky former dumpster-diver made a stunning debut on American Ninja Warrior in season 6 by becoming the first and only Ninja to complete the Venice City Finals. Nicholas is a super nice guy and as a humble and very handsome Ninja instantly, fit into the Ninja community, gaining instant respect from top Ninjas for his amazing acrobatic abilities.
With over 100k followers on Instagram (follow him @moderntarzan,) Nicholas lives by his mantra to "do something awesome everyday." Indeed, Nicholas is a bit of a joker, a bit of a hero, and all Ninja for sure.
In his interview, Nicholas states clearly that his goal was to be "paid to be himself" which he has clearly accomplished. Nicholas wants to inspire his followers to live out their dreams and develop their bodies and minds. Wait a second... That's what the Wolfpack Ninjas want as well! I think we are seeing a trend with all these positive and inspirational Ninjas which is they have become the people they always wanted to be, and now they want to show others that they can do it too.
Nicholas leads by example. His speed and fluidity as a Ninja are already legendary despite the fact that last season was his rookie year. When Nicholas moves it's like watching a panther or some other large cat moving powerfully, gracefully and confidently through obstacles. Searching for inspiration himself, this acrobatic genius may have found his muse with the American Ninja Warrior show. Give Modern Tarzan a follow on Instagram. You are missing out if you don't.
