Do you have what it takes to be the best and beat to rest to become Milton Keynes’ armwrestling champion?

Arms Against Harm is a series of amateur arm wrestling competitions throughout Milton Keynes, working to raise funds and awareness for MKact - a domestic abuse charity set up to help and aid victims in the town.

The first event takes place at The Eager Poet in Neath Hill on Saturday.

The Arms Against Harm, arranged by the Milton Keynes Armwrestling Federation (MKAF), will hold arm wrestling competitions across Milton Keynes, offering a £50 top prize in each venue and giving the top three a spot in the city wide Champion Of Champions final at the end of the year.

The MKAF is currently run by Jason Brooks and Paddy Henry, Jason a seasoned pro with several top three national titles under his belt, came into arm wrestling when he entered a similar competition and took victory.

As an MK only amateur contest, the men and women competing will receive basic training and a safety briefing and for a £5 entry fee (per arm) be in with a chance of up to £50 and a shot at the title of MK’s Best Armwrestler.

The night will be compered by multiple time British, European and World champion “Rambo” Rod Lennette.
