You are a legend coach, sometimes people listen and see what is current, but it is good to see the history books too.

The reason I was a good student is you put yourself out to train me and that is very important to me and I thank you for that Nick.

Maybe I can help you in the coming years, it would be great to see you back on top bud!!

KEEP THE TRAINING UP!!! Laughing

That would be pretty cool, we would learn a lot about the history and
personalities of the arm wrestlers here at home.

Nice one Nick
Paul is good at his interviews
I think its a great idea for Paul to do the interviews
When we started LPP Paul did one with the members with a vidio camera
It would be good if he did a vidio interview with some vidio archives the Michael Parkinson of the armwresling world Razz Razz
He as a great sence of humour and makes a great interviewer Laughing Laughing
