    You may not know it, but there is a real American Ninja Warrior living in our community.

    No, it’s not Chuck Norris. Kaden Forsha, 9, is maybe the toughest preteen you’ve ever heard about.

    The Ute Meadows Elementary fourth-grader is like most kids: school, homework and family time. But most every other minute of Kaden’s existence is dominated by his ninja-warrior obstacle training, which has changed his family’s life during the past four years.
