The Goren Hammer (5連ハンマー), referred to on English broadcasts as the Hammer Dodge, was an obstacle in the Second Stage For the first 9 competitons. Competitors would cross a balance beam while dodging five large swinging hammers. It was used heavily in Kinniku Banzuke on various events, most notably in several incarnations of Bamboo Derby and Like a Pierrot. In the first tournament, it eliminated future All-Stars Yamada Katsumi and Yamamoto Shingo. However, after SASUKE 4, fewer people cleared the First Stage, and as a result all of the remaining competitors were able to clear the obstacle. This obstacle was used in Sasuke Vietnam but it has a different swings to make this a little harder. It was also used in KUNOICHI 5 as the fourth obstacle, but decreasing numbers of hammers by one and the swings were sightly different, making 2 on each side, increasing gaps to make it more easy. It was replaced with a more dangerous obstacle, the Balance Tank, in SASUKE 10.
