This engrossing documentary gives the audience a peek into the origins of the fascinating world of The Collective of Lady Arm Wrestlers (CLAW). CLAW matches feature not just arm wrestling but also elaborate costumes and smack-talk performances; stage names, like Pain Fonda and Rockke L. Squelch; fundraising for worthy causes; and fostering the empowerment of women. The movement began in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2008 when an arm wrestling challenge between friends grew into the first epic match, Prim Reaper vs. MoJo the Underdog. In a few short years, CLAW groups have sprung up around the globe, including our very own OLY CLAW. The filmmakers, two CLAW aficionados who have followed the movement from its beginnings, describe it as “50% theater, 50% Sport, 50% Fundraiser. 150% awesome.”
