Meet the real Tarzan…
In the heart of the Amazon Rainforest in French Guiana (in South America), Niko would pass a lot of his time running wild in the forest and climbing trees as a child.
When his family moved to Paris, he joined a fire-breathing company at the age of 14 and decided to develop his acrobatic skills by training climbing, doing gymnastics and parkour in Paris.
(He did all this, mind you, while most of us at age 14 were trying to figure out how to get to the next level of Donkey Kong…just sayin’)
Then, at 18 years old, he took a leap. He ran away for home and literally joined the circus, eventually touring with Cirque du Soleil. The rest, as they say, is history.
He now leaps between buildings, morphs into circuitous shapes, and bends like Neo blocking bullets as he travels the world with Cirque Alfonse. Rumor has it he can morph into latte art in the blink of an eye.
Caffeinate. Train. Conquer. Repeat.
A monster truck wrapped in a human body, Carina "Quadzilla" David has been known to smash pumpkins with her crushing quads and break records like we mortals do peanut shells.
We just stand by with a trusty supply of caffeine.
The doctors told him he wouldn’t be able to walk. His wrists, femur, and hips failed him time after time. And when osteoarthritis reared its ugly head again, Nonny re-appeared with a full titanium hip replacement, partial femur replacement, and reconstructive surgery on both wrists.
Now, he’s the true bionic man. 6’1” and 224 lbs of solid metal...with the mental focus of a ninja.
