Post your questions for Hidenori Nagasawa 長澤 秀則

I'm excited! It's been a great year here on Rambling Rican! I'm getting the opportunity to blog on someone I never thought I'd get an opportunity to do so! Thanks to his Youtube site and the fact that he writes in English I've been given the opportunity to blog about Jaguar Mechanic Hidenori Nagasawa 長澤 秀則.

For those who might remember him he is the Jaguar Mechanic from Tokyo, Japan who was a frequent competitor in Sasuke from Sasuke 10-17 (albeit cut a lot from the final TBS Broadcast). He returned in Sasuke 23 (timing out just as he got to the Tarzan Rope) after recovering from knee surgery that sidelined him for a few tournaments, but was cut again by TBS. His best result was Sasuke 16 where he beat the first stage but was defeated by the redesigned Metal Spin (along with 6 other competitors). He is also very famous for all the obstacles he has built on the rooftop of where he lives in Tokyo. You can see the course he has set up via his Youtube site.

Just like I did with Michael Milner (from Sasuke 20), Luci Romberg's Sasuke 21 trip (will be taking final questions this week for Sasuke 22), Brett Sims (Sasuke 19 and 20) and David Campbell (Sasuke 22) I will be asking for questions from fans to be sent to Nagasawa-san.

Questions for all tournaments will be asked (A full list of his participation is on his wiki).

I'm posting this here and on both the Sasuke Maniac Forums and the G4 boards along with twitter. Oh! P.S. If you wrote a question in the G4 boards or Proboards you don't have to duplicate it here.. and vice versa I'm monitoring both boards. For this blog just use the comments section at the end of this entry. I won't get this blog up though until AFTER I'm done blogging about Sasuke 23. It's taking a long time but I should finish up this week :)

Guidelines - please don't get too personal. Keep questions to Sasuke/Ninja Warrior as much as possible. At this time with Sasuke 24 just being announced we do not know if he is invited again. Also please stick to questions for him - don't ask about other competitors results, etc. I also have the right to not include all the questions and he also reserves the right to not answer all the questions :P Also - please keep this thread to questions only. Once the blog is done I'll create another thread with the answers and of course the blog entry.

For his benefit please state your name, age, and location so he knows where everyone is asking questions. He is a bit surprised he has fans at all!

What's the most memorable experience you had at SASUKE? What motivated you to participate in SASUKE?
