Well technically I can beat most of the obstacles on the course, but would I beat them all in sucession? Yeah probably not.
Though, I can do all of the first obstacles in the first stage, the one the scares me teh most is the jumping Spider. I see it being more of a 40% chance of failing that. If I DID pass the jumping spider I don't see me losing ons tage 1. There's no WAY I'd get a timeout unless I got hung up on the warped wall. Since I'm freakishly tall and can jump that high without the curve I'd be fine. SJ used to scare me but it's looks much easier now, very beatable.
DHJ: Not so sure... I'd say I have a good chance but this obstacle is really mental and I hate skateboarding and snowboarding so I'd be freaking out here
SL: Ionno, I'll tell you when I build it.
UB: I'd probably be able to beat it... but I may take a bit too much time, I dunno.
metal Spin: Worries me a bit
Wall lift: Easy except for the last wall, but you can practically crawl under it now with that gap...
Arm rings yes
Devil Steps yes
Jumping bars no
ascending climb yes
spider flip yes
gliding ring yes
rope ladder: yes, easily
G-rope: no chance in hell. Maybe If Nagano grew a few inches, put on some makeup, dyed his hair red and took my place.... nah, that'd be silly.
How I would probably do on each obstacle if I got the chance:
I would easily beat the Jyunidantobi and the Curtain Slider (I hope)...I'm not sure if I'd make it past the Log Grip since I've never tried anything like it...Jumping Spider, no way (that's why I voted for this)...Halfpipe Attack, probably fail it...Warped Wall, definitely not...Slider Jump, maybe...rest of Stage 1, relatively easily if I have enough time left...honestly, I think that I'd lose my balance on the Downhill Jump...Salmon Ladder, I'd be extraordinarily lucky if I got up one or two rungs...Stick Slider, hopefully...Unstable Bridge, no clue (I've only seen it being tried once so far, which was in Levi's Sasuke 23 run on Youtube, so I don't know much about it yet in terms of difficulty)...Metal Spin, probably not...Wall Lifting would probably take me too long...Arm Rings, I think I could do...Downward Lamp Grasper, possibly...Devil Steps, that gap after the first few steps along with fatigue would most likely land me in the water (I just realized that there is no way in the world that I'd ever get this far; sorry if it's a little off-topic, but I might as finish this while I'm at it :^))...Shin-Cliff Hanger, I'd be lucky if I got TO the gap, no way that I'd clear it...Jumping Bars, I think that I'd actually have a standing chance since I sometimes do stuff like this...Hand Climbing, I'd look like a noob...Spider Flip, doubt it...Gliding Ring, I think I might pass that huge gap at the end...Heavenly Ladder would probably take me too long to beat the Final Stage...G-Rope, probably not.
Wow, that was way more than I should have said :^)
If I could get past the Steps and the Curtain Slider, I'd probably beat the Log Grip due to my strong legs and arms. The Jumping Spider would eliminate me. Even if I could make the jump, the Spider Walking would be too difficult.
Jyunidantobi - no problem Curtain Slider - if I have a good grip I have it Log Grip - ditto Jumping Spider - ditto Halfpipe Attack - worries me a bit but I could do it on a good day Warped Wall - NO. I'm 5'3", and although I'm as tall as Nagano, Nagano is a freaking beast and I am not. Slider Jump - Never in a million years. Tarzan Rope - I'd probably slide off lol Rope Ladder - easy. I'm a climbing wiz Downhill Jump - probably Salmon Ladder - don't count on it Stick Slider - 70/30 clear Unstable Bridge - nope Metal Spin - if I even reach the ropes it'd be a miracle Wall Lift - crawl under the gaps, duh I'd clear nothing in the 3rd stage.

I reckon as long as I didn't make any silly slip-ups, or annoying misjudgements, I could probably beat the first stage. It's what my parkour practice amounts to really lol I would then probably go on to fail the Salmon Ladder. Miserably. I don't think I could even move the bar up 1 set. I'd just be left hanging there. Better go work on my upper body strength! ;D

The first two obstacles I'd probably have no problems with. I'm not too worried about the Log Grip. I just don't like the fact it may bruise my arms like David said. The Jumping Spider is probably my biggest worry in stage one besides the time. I'm not too worried about sticking in the walls, but I'm a bit worried about the trampoline since it's a bungee-cord gymnastics trampoline which I've never had any experience on. If it was a regular trampoline, I'd have no problems. If anything takes me out in stage one, it would be this or the time. I'm not really worried about the Halfpipe Attack or Warped Wall. I'm a bit concerned about the Slider Jump, but due to the net moving closer to the pipe in this tournament, I'm not too worried about it anymore. The tarzan rope and rope ladder would be pretty easy. I'd be pretty concerned about the time too, because I'm not really extremely fast like some of the people that competed.
In stage two, I feel I'd probably time out due to the strict time limit now. I wouldn't be too worried about the downhill jump, because I used to skateboard, have pretty good balance, and have replicated this obstacle and did it pretty well. I'd be a bit concerned about the Salmon Ladder. However, I feel I could clear this obstacle. I'm only worried, because I've never actually replicated this obstacle. But, I have pretty good upper body strength and endurance, so I feel I could clear it. The unstable bridge, I'd be more worried about than the Salmon Ladder, because it can be a bit unpredictable, and you have to be cautious throughout it, meaning I'd probably waste alot of valuable time here. The metal spin is pretty easy IMO. And, I'd have fun with Wall Lifting, because the clean and jerk is actually one of my favorite gym exercises haha. In the end, I'd probably wind up timing out though even if I do complete every obstacle.
The first three obstacles in the third stage wouldn't be very hard for me. I'd be a put concerned about getting fatigued early, but I feel I'd at least make it to the cliffhanger. I have a mini-replication of this obstacle in my house, but this is probably the hardest obstacle in the third stage and requires a good bit of technique. And, a mini-replication isn't nearly as long as the real thing haha. The jumping bars wouldn't be too much of a problem for me, but the ascending climb and climbing portion of the Spider Flip would probably take me out, because I'd probably be too fatigued to complete them. The Gliding Ring wouldn't be a problem. I could complete the Heavenly Ladder, but no way I'd complete the grope in time.
So after a long "essay" , I'd say Rope Ladder via timeout for the first stage, Wall lifting via timeout for the second stage, Spider Flip via fatigue for the third stage, and Grope via timeout for the Final stage.
