I was colder than they were, and I had a coat

I got to shoot a very interesting Karate demonstration tonight, which started with the group going outside, the guys taking their shirts off, and performing their warmup in near zero degree temperatures. After walking back inside, the head of the group showed me his skin – he didn’t even have goosebumps. Apparently the form of Karate they perform teaches them to control every muscle in their body, which helps them generate their own source of heat.
