We found that no current can be driven in a central region of high-temperature, magnetically-confined, axi-symmetric torus plasma once the central current density becomes nearly zero ("current hole"), in spite of high electric conductivity. The current clamp was observed against current drive by a toroidal electric field and a radio-frequency wave in experiments on the JT-60U tokamak. This is a new, stiff, self-organized structure of magnetic field in an axi-symmetric torus plasma.
