Ninja Warrior 2017

Also in 2017 Benni competed at Ninja Warrior Germany and impressed the spectators with his „inhuman“ performances. With the best time of just 2:25 min in the semi-final, he draws into the final. In the final, Benni also impresses the spectators, with great speed and  races over the obstacles with a playful lightness. The presenters Frank Buschmann and Jan Köppe personally describe Benni as "disguised cat" and give comments like "what is going on here???" and " that is inhuman! " Video Links: (RTL Youtube Channel) Semifinal qualification: final qualification:

Sony Music

7.12.2016. Cold wind, ice and snow in the midst of forests and medows. The perfect conditions for the shoot of the music video of newcomer Jane XO, that took place in Hof, Bavaria. The weather created the ideal mood for the story of the video, in which Pascal as the male protagonist chases a young woman with playful Parkour elements. You can watch the music video here:

Deichmann TV Spot

Together  with the agencies Czar and Freistil, we supplied three of our most experienced athletes  for the shoe manufacturer Deichmann. The trio spent 8 adventurous days in the beautiful Barcelona, with their good friend Felix Quinton, to shoot the commercial. The "Deichmann Streetstyle Image Spot" for autumn 2014 featured besides Parkour and Freerunning  also Breakdance and Dance  scenes and follows a fresh approach  to present the brand. Team spirit  was the main theme in the commercial and inforces the motto "because brands are invincible". We are very happy about the result  and proud to be  represented in German TV  with two Ashigaru athletes at the same time. Here is the 1-minute version of the commercial:

Karma Chakhs

In September 2015 Ashigaru athlete Matthias Mayer and Jakob Vöckler were part of the production of the elaborate commercial for "Karma Chakhs". This amazing Crowdfunding project emerged from the protest against unfair production conditions of the famous "Chucks shoes" and had set itself as their own fair shoes. In addition to fair working conditions and fair pay, this also means the elimination of child labor and the processing of toxic ingredients - and premiums of 15% of the production costs of each step are invested in charitable purposes. Jakob and Matthias were able to sniff some Berlin air (and Munich air, but they know this quite well), eat the best kebabs of their lives, become vegetarians and also meet a lot of people - among them the father of the Karma movement , Van Bo Le-Mentzel, the producer Shai Hoffman and the director Christian Fischer and many, many more, all with their free work ensured that a brilliant project was realized. You can see it here by the way: Nähere Infos zum Karma Projekt gibt es auf ihrer Website:

Netflix – Ultimate Beastmaster

The new Netflix Show „Ultimate Beastmaster“ with Sylvester Stallone aired on February 2017 and our athlete Silke Sollfrank had the opportunity to fly to USA along with six other athletes from around the globe to overcome a monstrous obstacle course. „The Beast“ took place in a middle of a desert in Los Angeles. Silke was the youngest competitor being one of the few female athletes that even took part. It looked as if she was in a disadvantage compared to her muscular crossfit competitors but her parkour experience took her the furthest from all the female competitors. You can see her strong performance in episode „The Beauty and the Beast“ on Netflix.

NIKON D750 – Unchained

  In 2014, we received a request for a video and photo production for Nikon in Berlin. The goal was to put the new Nikon D750 into the spotlight together with the Red Bull sports photographer Ray Demski. Our athlete Lucas Wilson was already in the midst of the pre-production process, accompanied and advised the production team at locationscoutings and in meetings with the photographer. On two days of fitting and a new location check with Red Bull athlete and Ashigaru founder Jason Paul, followed a 2-day shooting, partly over 14 hours from sunrise and sunset. Sounds as stressful as it is - but even after 14 hours of action shooting, our athletes still never fail to deliver. As always, we keep it brief, present the results and are proud to be part of interesting jobs with great people, whose interaction and work at the end of the day produces wonderful results:
