United States ArmSports is an organization formed to finally unite the armwrestling and wristwrestling organizations in the United States. The ultimate goal of this neutral organization is unification and to have our sport accepted for competition in the Olympic Games. One of the major factors holding the United States back from participation in the Olympics is that we are not unified under one organization. We are in the process of solving that issue now. This umbrella organization is United States ArmSports (here-in-after referred to as USA). New associations are joining daily. It is important to note that the individual organizations do not have to give up their identity to participate in this great move to unification.

The benefits to independent organizations who become members of USA are:

1. There are no costs involved to be a member of USA.

2. The USA will not interfere with the running of the association or its tournaments.

3. The web site of United States ArmSports (http://www.armwrestling.com) can be used by the association in the promotion of all tournaments and recognition of outstanding athletes and individuals contributing to the sport. This site has over 400,000 hits per month and went online beginning in April of 1996.

4. USA is the largest and dominate organization in America. USA and its member organizations are the driving force for the sport in the United States.

5. Each member association can hold a qualifying tournament in which their winners will advance to a Unified National Championships. There has never been a true United States National championship until now.

6. The member associations will have the opportunity to bid on hosting the annual Unified National Championship.

7. It gives the USA and its members, power as a group to expedite the acceptance of ArmSports into the Olympics.

You may not be aware that armsports has already been submitted to the Olympic Committee for consideration into the Olympics. One reason it was refused entrance was due to the lack of unification in the United States. There were too many different organizations and no unity. Before armsports can be considered for competition the associations in the United States must be consolidated under one umbrella organization. The USA will solve the problem of unification. A number of countries have already formally recognized armsports as an Olympic sport, Russia being the most notable. We are asking independent associations to join with us to obtain that goal.
