Arm Gods Pro Show
As I write with the Novice Nationals just a few days behind us the first draft of the 2023 events calendar is taking shape. Please note that the PAA UK & IRELAND does not run all the events, but we do include some independent promotions information here. Hopefully there will be something near to you that suits your ability & interest. What we have is something going on every month somewhere - The list is by no means exhaustive or definite - there will be alterations & additions. The Presidents Bulletin (home page) which happens every week on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday will give the details as they arrive & they will be added here with promoters contact details. Get pulling & planning. Dan.

Udezumou UK is experimental inspired by the All Japan Arm Sumo Association. If your style relies on the comfort of strict rules, refs grip & vaguries of voodoo using the strap this isn't for you. Negotiate your grip before the crowd boos. Pin opponents knuckles to table/off edge for 3 count. It's rough & tumble, running fouls on a king of the table format. 2023 introduces Round table & tag team rules: find a partner, formulate your strategy & see if your names will be engraved on the Yamamoto cup.

Arm Gods are planning a giant event in Northern Ireland in January. Iron Maiden is set to take on the Beerman Evan Bourgoin & other big names from across the pond have been thrown around to participate in supermatch challenges. With more belts recently added to the Arm Gods portfolio of championships it looks to be spectacular. The location has not yet been revealed but keep an eye on the President's weekly bulletin (home page) where I will announce it when it becomes clearer. There's already a war of words started, get the flavour of it with the link below.
