Armour

A bizarre discovery:

An ex martial artist habitually stands and sits with his shoulders in a forward-defensive posture. He can't unroll them to dance tango; or, he can, but not easily, or only for short periods.

Put a jacket on him, and, like magic! They unroll.

"I think I'm wearing armour," he says. "That's why I never wear jackets".

He must be a hard style martial artist, the fighter type. :-)

Tell him to watch Jet Li movies - perfect posture. ;-)

@spammer - no, thanks.
@DB - I just remembered that I should have credited you.

Well to be fair I was thinking more of sartorial matters than posture matters - the latter was a bonus.

Hmmm, mayb I should think about wearing a jacket...

@ghost: See how proper shoulder position works best?

"Well obviously that was a choreographed fight. I love it when I'm scheduled to win :o)"

This is more what that fight scene would look like ;o)
