"Every person on earth wants to be a better arm-wrestler" ~ Clayton Faulconer
Hey there, it's a miracle that I am here to tell my story and I am so thankful that you chose to come here. I survived multiple traumatic accidents over my life and I made a pledge that I will not give up until I am a champion again. If you are interested in also becoming a champion arm wrestler, you are in the right place.
My story goes like this; although I had been in two major accidents, by 2018 life was good. I had been inducted into the BC Arm Wrestling Hall of Fame, won the Canadian National Championship 9x's to date, and this is after I had survived two major accidents. Now, when I say "major", those included a head-on collision (1997), a severe collision with a manure spreader (2006) where I almost lost my right knee.
In 2018, my life changed and I was involved in a pedestrian vs. car accident — I was the pedestrian. In that accident, I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); I was bleeding in the brain; I had multiple broken bones and I was placed in an induced coma for 10-days. I was a mess!
I decided, however, that I would come back... I will, again, be a champion arm wrestler. And you know what? I am on target to make that happen in 2022! I am a very positive person and I like to talk about what I can do, not what I cannot do.
I have spent countless hours, using everything I have learned arm wrestling over the last 30 years to place second at the Canadian Championships in Winnipeg Manitoba 2022. I was competing in a weight class that was four higher than I have ever competed in the past - a max of 220.4 lbs. — This was a mere 4-years after the life-changing event that should have ended it all for me!
Now, I have made this website and teach everything I have learned over the past 30 years. - Look at all the pages of my website.
My teammate Randy Sparling recently placed 6th at the IFA World Championships. He accomplished this for many reasons but I believe that one of those reasons is that he is a primal member of AC and no other senior has placed in the top 10 at the World Championships in their first year of practice 🍁💪 I am very proud!
If you want to become a better arm wrestler, please come along for the ride!!
