    I'm too old to know what any of that means.

    BUT - I did see Marsha Hall (a world champion Taekwondoist) knock out Victor Tapson (a ranked US tournament fighter) one night after class. Victor thought they were just playing light touch contact... Marsha had different ideas.

    Google 'Marsha Hall Taekwondo' for more information her, I can't find anything on like about Victor.

    It ran those two or three pages because a fair bit entailed two temporarily disarmed and slightly mismatched combatants keeping an eye on each other, improvising weaponry, and hunting an advantage. The aggressor wasn't going to walk away and the defender couldn't. Nobody got away without getting hit, and the conclusion entailed a microwave oven repurposed as a blunt object.

    It was absurd and more amusing than it probably should have been. I may revisit it one day.
    In the first chapter of my WIP I have a fight scene go on for almost 600 words (16 paragraphs).

    I'm probably too young to relate to this, and yet here we are.
