    Arm Wrestling Discussion

    Since there has been so much talk about arm wrestling on the message boards recently, I thought now would be a perfect time to give the subject it's own thread, so here it is.

    Let's talk arm wrestling! Who have you beaten and who have you challenged? What is your technique? Do you have any tips? Do you know about good places to buy arm wrestling gear and/or supplies? So, let's get to it!

    Re: Arm Wrestling Discussion

    I like to flip my hat backwards just before I start the match. It's as if I'm "flipping the switch." Once, I wrestled in a tournament for a semi and the custody of my young son. I won both, it was over the top.

    Re: Arm Wrestling Discussion

    I once arm wrestled my left arm with my right arm. But I lost. I don't know how. But I did.

    I think everyone here agrees that that was a GREAT movie. One of the best about arm wrestling ever.

    Here's some of the more famous people I have beaten:

    Julius Michalik
    Loren Meyer
    Marc Carlson
    Donnell Bivens
    Todd Bandhauer
    Joe Modderman
    Guy Who I Thought Was Hurl Beechum

    Whatchu guys got?

    Another good question Aaron Jacobs. I can tell that you are big fan of the sport? Have you ever been in any tournaments?

    I once challenged a man who goes by the name of "Chuck Norris", he proceeded to kick my teeth in, even AFTER he beat me

    I think Jeremy should start an arm wrestling forum.

    Re: Arm Wrestling Discussion

    A buddy of mine who is a personal trainer (fairly big dude) and I were at a bar here in Omaha. Our waitress told us that she had won 3 state arm wrestling championships (you can imagine how attractive she was). So my buddy challenged her to arm wrestling. We cleared our drinks off the table and my friend proceeded to get his tail whooped by this girl. If you ever go to Fox & Hound on Dodge in Omaha, you will definitely be able to pick her out of the crowd.

    I kind of doubt it, but there was a great arm wrestling scene in the 1986 remake of The Fly
