🙂 Now it has a name – KING’s move. 🙂
(The name of the armwrestler who first called this move is unknown, it will remain a great mystery)
The first time I wrote about this in the article The ugliest / funniest armwrestling match in the armwrestling history ? and next in The future of armwrestling ?
- I guess the debate about this will never end, so here are some new comments from John Brzenk and Devon Larratt (click on the red names, you will be sent to the location of the comment in Armwrestling John – Engin, and you can like it):
Devon Larratt Break arms… Dangerous position… It is an interesting topic. I personally believe that at the pro level there should be no dangerous position foul, i even believe there should be things done at that level to facilitate greater movement on the table (get rid of the pegs to hold with the off hand) anyways. I have seen Many break arms in my time of armwrestling, seems like there are many more these days than when i started the sport. 98% of the breaks i have seen in person (not the youtube breaks) have happened in completely good position.. nothing a ref could have done to stop it. I have personally never witnessed an arm break with someone doing “THE KING”S MOVE”.. It makes me wonder alot about dangerous position, if that is really the issue.. anyways I know of many people who have hurt themselves pulling against the King’s move.. Makes me wonder which is really the more dangerous position..
John R Brzenk The sport has to be kid friendly. This direction will make the sport more accepted and mainstream . NOT the crazy professional rules…for the sake of the TV spectators. When a thousand young adults arrive from schools across the country . We will have succeeded in bringing the correct promotion and benefits of sport to the masses. Are we losing sight of why this sport is good healthy fun for everyone interested in competition ! Lets not try to turn this into something it’s not … Just because you think it might be good for ratings …and what is this Kings move ???
Bob Brown The Kings move is what Micheal Todd and Crazy George do.Bob Brown I am not sure who first called it that. But its funny
John R Brzenk Professional football players dont need any protection either . They make enough to know if the really need a helmet … Wow can you imagine what that would do for ratings …Wish the. NFL would just listen to me 🙂
Mete Han KING’s move !!! long live the king :)))
John R Brzenk Is this sit down wrestling .. With a missing seat 🙂
John R Brzenk The Shame lies with the major promotors that will continue to allow this to be ok Just because they think its good for ratings or is exciting for the spectator . If it continues this sport will turn into a bad joke . I would shake my head with disgust if I seen kids armwrestling this way across a cafeteria table !!!
Oh yes they couldn’t … Because they couldn’t get low enough … Also ” This is only for highly trained pros “
