A long time ago I took some supplement, Pine..something.. not pine pollen but some kind of pine extract pill that was reputedly a tonic especially good for circulation. I was teaching childrens classes in Aikido at the time and had a very talented group of Phillippino's. There were 5 of them cousins and brothers, great bunch, respectful and dedicated.
The thing I did that wowed them the most probably wasn't my martial prowess but my ability to make snow balls- w/ my bare hands! Growing up in a snowless place, they were amazed I could stick my bare hands into freezing white stuff repeatedly and make rock solid balls. I think the pine extract helped w/ the stunt. Being young and willing to risk minor frost bite to impress youngsters also did.
I'm sure I was to them, what Wim Hof is to me.
