I was poised to take the world championship in my weight class, but life has a way of changing your best laid out plans.
I have always been an adventuresome type and when I got into Arm Wrestling, it was just another outlet for my adventuresome spirit; but typical of my character, I wanted to be the best.
I was not always a good arm wrestler. My first contest was in 1991 at 176lbs: This was a BC event and I placed almost last in both right and left arms. I trained hard with the Cranbrook Wrist Wrestling club and 3 years later in 1994 I won the Canadian Wrist Wrestling Championships in Kelowna BC.
Through hard work and training, It would not be until 2000 that I began to place in the top 3 at the National Armwrestling championships and would not win another Canadian championship until 2015.
I started winning and currently have 9 National Championships and have placed in the top-10 in the WAF World Championships 4-times.
But my biggest achievement by far, however, has been my recovery from three traumatic accidents that have left me with a series of permanent injuries — including a traumatic brain injury.
The fact that I am able to make this site is a miracle. I am able to teach people everything I know and how to be better arm wrestlers. I have made a pledge to keep no secrets.

Clayton has recovered from 3 accidents that would kill most
It is a miracle I survived these three accidents
Accidents happen... that is why they call them accidents. (no one was killed in these accidents) and now I realize that I am here for a reason - to teach people how to be Champion Arm Wrestlers!
I was driving a Toyota Celica and I collided with a car head-on. I had a concussion, broken jaw & cheekbone, lung damage, and my keys went through my right knee. My injuries were so severe that they induced a 4-day coma.
Manure Spreader & Truck Accident
I was a passenger in Ford Ranger p/u that ran into the back of a manure spreader. This was a "shity situation" This happened 5km West of Mission, BC Canada. I had a mild head injury, broken left wrist, broken ball joint in my right hip, and a femoral neck fracture.
Hit by a car while walking
While walking across a street in Vancouver BC, Canada, I was struck by a car, thrown ahead and then while the car was slowing down to stop, run over by it.
I got a severe head injury with an 6-inch laceration on the back of my head and was bleeding in the brain. I also had broken bones, including my nose, ribs, face and severe lacerations above and below my left eye.
I also had what is called a subarachnoid hemorrhage — a stroke caused by bleeding in the brain and they induced a coma for 10-days.
