KUNOICHI 1 (officially KUNOICHI2001冬, literally KUNOICHI 2001 Winter) was the first ever KUNOICHI tournament, a SASUKE course made entirely for women. The course was made much shorter than its counterpart, containing three short stages and only eleven obstacles. However, these obstacles were so difficult that only two women, Yusa Masami and Yamada Miho, were able to clear the First Stage. In the Second Stage, they both failed the Daichoyaku thus leaving the Final Stage untouched.
