Re: The "Jo Trick" and Similar Exercises

There is an account of Greece's greatest boxer, in the old days of the Olympiad. He was undefeated without ever striking a blow. Supposedly, he stuck his two arms straight out, and kept moving into his opponent's space - and they would punch and punch and all they would hit was his arms - hour after hour, until they collapsed with exhaustion. (sounds pretty boring to watch). I can't remember the reference - it was in a 50 year old book on feats of strength throughout world history at the gym I work out.
