I started in highschool due to my small stature...picking on the big kids at the table was a highlight. I started like anyone, pulling on the desks in the classroom hurting my elbows and kicking some butt. In July 2000, I competed in my first competition and was hooked from then on.
Why I Love it
Its a great accomplishement reaching goals you set out for yourself. I was headed in a bad direction as a teen and Arm-Wrestling took me out of that rut. I owe a lot to this sport! The people I have met in this sport across the World are amazing. I can't believe the level of comrodery in an individualy based sport. This sport is built on a lot of heart, respect and determination.
