About Luke Kindt
Kindt lives in Petaluma, California where armwrestling started in the 1950's. Kindt was a born athlete, but never had the grades to play sports. His life's passion was always to compete at the highest level. Armwrestling fell into his life at the perfect time. Dropping out of high school with no direction or guidance was a scary time for him. Armwrestling taught Kindt discipline, giving him purpose, and making him feel important for the first time in his life. Kindt believes armwrestling made him who he is today.
To stay in competition shape Luke focuses on muscle ups, one arm pull-ups and climbing rope. He explains “What makes me unique is my ability to break down and attack my opponents’ weaknesses. Being diverse and unpredictable is my trademark.”
Luke and his long-term girlfriend live together in Petalima. Away from armwrestling he enjoys Drag Racing.
