The New York Arm Wrestling Association (NYAWA) announced that the 2017 NYC Sit-Down Arm Wrestling Championships will be held on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017 beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Cheap Shots Sports Bar, 149-05 Union Turnpike, Flushing Queens, NY 11367.

The Proud Sponsors are Ironmind.com/Captains of Crush Grippers and Cheap Shots Sports Bar. Contestants should weigh-in register between 9:30 A.M. and 12:50 P.M.
More than 100 men and women are expected to compete for the chance to win the 2017 New York State Sit-Down Arm Wrestling Championship Titles. Among the titles to be awarded are the men’s masters 43+ and 55+ age groups and three women’s classes in right and left-hand competition.
Custom Gold, Silver and Bronze medallions, plaques and certificates will be awarded in each weight class and the day’s strongest overall male and female will receive special MVP Awards. In addition, Captains of Crush Hand Grippers will be awarded along with $100 cash prizes to the day’s strongest overall, right and left-handed Male. Contestants will be grouped as teams based on residency in the five NYC Boroughs, Long Island and beyond with award honors to the highest scoring team.
“The NYC Sit Down will surely produce the best brute strength arm wrestlers; since little technique can be performed in the sit-down position,” according to Gene Camp, founder and president of the New York Arm Wrestling Association. “This event is going to be very exciting to watch because many previous stand-up arm wrestling winners are competing without being able to use their signature techniques in this one-on-one sheer strength, sit-down championship.” This event will also be an America Red Cross Fundraiser to support victims of the horrific disasters caused by the recent hurricanes and Las Vegas concert attack.
The NYAWA is also seeking partnerships/sponsors for this and all upcoming events.
