    The book RED SPARROW, which is now being adapted into a J.Law movie, outright portrays Putin as a villain. We may just be short of seeing him stroking a white cat to complete the cliche.

    I had already swept, choked, and arm-barred him, nicely. The third time, I literally could not straighten out his arm, and I had decent position, and his arm was already mostly straight, and he picked me up off the ground.

    I let him go to potentially save both of us...

    It is the repetitive element. Old man strength is finite. We can stiffen up once, but several times is too much to expect.
    Wait, what were we...?

    I have a sense that you are one of the old men I was talking about.

    Unfortunately for me, and my unsuspecting audience, sometimes I actively contribute to it.

    "Old man strength" is nothing more than conditioning and perfected technique. "Perfected" is being used loosely here to illustrate a point.
