In season 1 we have Tarrlok capture Korra and keep her locked in a metal box. Then Amon comes. When Tarrlok tries to bloodbend Amon, Amon resists. How come Tarrlok couldn't resist Amon's bloodbending?

    I feel like you're answering your own question? Amon resists because his stronger/more skilled, ergo Tarrlok can't resist Amon. Are you asking for more than that? Perhaps I'm missing something. – user31178 May 5 '17 at 4:52

It's shown in the flashback episode that Amon was the stronger bender among the brothers.

Episode 11: Skeletons in the closet

Tarrlok: A few years later, my father taught us to bloodbend anytime, without the need of the full moon. We practiced constantly, and I hated every minute of it. I had no stomach for manipulating helpless animals. My brother, however, seemed to revel in this newfound power. He was a prodigy, mastering my father's psychic bloodbending technique by the time he was fourteen.

    Can you give a quote, or a piece of evidence for this? it does not have to be much, but always include evidence in respect to quotes, links, and videos in the answers – Matrim Cauthon May 5 '17 at 14:21
