The Swing Jump was the fourth obstacle in Baltimore on American Ninja Warrior 5 and in Dallas on American Ninja Warrior 6. Competitors would start on a platform with a cylindrical swing on it. Then, they had to stand on it and swing long enough to build up lots of momentum to reach a cargo net. Once on it, they had to climb underneath it, carefully not to touch the water, and reach the landing platform (except in Team Ninja Warrior, where competitors were allowed to touch the water on Swing Jump).
This obstacle had a decent knockout rate, especially on its first appearance. Some competitors carelessly dragged their feet through the water, while others (such as Bull Bullard), couldn't get a good jump off the swing. Sam Sann had an interesting technique in Dallas, by swinging on one of the support chains instead of the swing platform itself (because he slightly injured his feet after completed the previous obstacle, the Tilting Table). This obstacle also appeared as the third obstacle in every season of Team Ninja Warrior, and then in Ninja Warrior UK 2 and 3.
