Go for it! Just read up everything you can about it beforehand and START SLOW/EASY, as bending is a whole different beast from crushing. Not necessarily implying that it is harder or better, but the penalties for mistakes are several degrees harsher. Consider starting a sledge levering practice ASAP to get your wrists in order.
I haven’t posted much recently about King Kong. With the effect that the pandemic has had on everyone’s plans this year, I’ve had trouble finding the motivation to promote the contest. Logistical problems have also arisen, making it a challenge to get necessary equipment in the hands of some King Kong promoters. I think we can all agree that so far, 2020 hasn’t been awesome.
A couple of people have inquired about whether the contest will be occurring. My answer is “YES”. Due to the multi-venue, multi-country nature of the event, King Kong will go on, with the understanding that it is possible that not all locations may be able to take part. Each country/state/province is issuing its own rules/guidance for sporting events during the pandemic, and we will be encouraging individual promoters to take steps and make decisions as they see fit to ensure a safe experience for all.
Regardless of the number of venues and competitors that take part (whether 5 or 25), King Kong will go on. All classes and prizing will remain the same. If you plan to compete and have questions about a particular venue, I encourage you to reach out to the venue promoter directly. Promoters are identified in the first post of this thread. If you have trouble finding contact information, please let me know.
Hey everyone! A newer bender named Cody Christensen started a bending podcast and I was lucky enough to be his first guest! This is all about my experience in bending and a few bonus mentions of my feud with Randall Strossen and Ironmind. If you give it a listen please tell me what you think! I believe he has Clay Edgin, @Donc101, and @Horrido on his upcoming guest list. @Tommy J. he said you have a message in your inbox!
