I am looking for an idiom that means "offering little resistance" in a very general way such that it can be used in the context of a negotiation, physical fight or even war. Is there such an idiom? If "offering little resistance" is too specific, try something like "being weak", which has a similar meaning.

  • Have you looked up synonyms for "wimp", "wuss", "pushover", and "loser"?

You could say it was a piece of cake:

: something easily done : CINCH, BREEZE

So, for example:

Fighting him was a piece of cake.
