Arm wrestling is a contest between two opponents facing each other with their bent elbows placed on a table and hands firmly gripped then attempt to force the opponent’s hand down to the table top. In the early years different names were interchangeably used to describe the same sport: “arm turning”, “arm twisting”, “arm wrestling”, “Indian arm wrestling”, “twisting wrists”, “wrist turning”, “wrist wrestling”.
