Xu Teli (1877-1968) was a politician of People's Republic of China and the teacher of Mao Zedong. Xu believed that revolutionaries must train their bodies in order to engage in lifetime battles, not only with the "enemy of the people", but also to cope with the challenges of nature. Revolutionaries must have a striving spirit and a strong body to endure hardships.
