Arm Wrestling

Arm wrestling is not just a way to settle an argument—it is also a competitive sport. In official contests, two opponents sit facing each other, with hands interlocked and elbows firmly planted on a table surface, and attempt to force the other's arm down. Strength alone does not make for a successful arm wrestler. The significant twisting force arm wrestling puts on the humerus bone of the upper arm can be quite dangerous, so good technique is also vital. How do arm wrestlers avoid broken arms? More...

The battle greatly enhanced Martel's prestige at the time. What nickname was bestowed on him? More... Discuss

Double Tenth Day

Double Tenth Day is a national holiday in Taiwan to commemorate the Chinese Revolution of October 10, 1911. The revolt marked the end of the Ching, or Qing, Dynasty that had been established in 1644 by the Manchus, and it led to the founding of the Republic of China on January 1, 1912. For several weeks before Double Tenth Day, the plaza in front of the Presidential Office Building in Taipei is illuminated. Celebrations include massive parades and rallies, displays of martial arts, folk dancing, and other cultural activities. Storm STAC901GR Bowling Towel, Green/Gray, Discuss
