Next time you find yourself in a large trade bookstore (Barnes & Nobles, Borders, inter alia) be sure to check out THE NAKED OLYMPICS by Tony Perrottet (2004). It gives a very good overview of the ancient Olympics and the accompanying mileau of the games.
Bullshidoka weill especially enjoy Chapter 16, The Theater of Pain--the contact sports. The book also features some really cool Greek jar art featuring fighting scenes including a very familiar throw, "the flying mare", boxers doing form work and "tH3 d34ly eye gouge." :p
I am writing the author and seeing if I cannot get some of these illustrations as posters. Would look great in the dining room. :D
Kung fu is translated as "stand around and talk."
