SuperSlow

One of the ancient Thai classics instructs warriors to display [i.e., practice] their martial skills so “that one may enjoy the sight.”
—Donn F. Draeger and Robert W. Smith. 1969. Asian Fighting Arts. Tokyo: Kodansha International LTD.

I read about SuperSlow and the method seemed reasonable. Not very practical for many sports, but great for people who just want to gain sheer strength or muscle mass. Then I have seen the video . . .

The King of Siam might say, “Very scientific,” but looking at it is no pleasure. And that’s on top of the exercises being done indoors and on complicated machines. Yes, it cannot be good if watching it makes little children cry.

Request for help:

One of our authors and my friend, Piotr Drabik, has disappeared in September of 2006 after he landed on the island of Kaua’i, Hawaii, where he was seen on airport security cameras. He arrived there from Edmonton, Alberta (Canada), through Salt Lake City, Utah, and Honolulu, Hawaii. We (his friends at Stadion Publishing) were assisting in the investigation of his disappearance. The investigation was ineffective and eventually the case was dropped by all involved authorities.

If you have seen him on or after September of 2006, or know anything about his whereabouts, please e-mail us at infoATstadionDOTcom.
