Down in one

You've trained for years. You are so confident in your skills. All your friends tell you how cool and tough you are. But the truth is.....

It only takes one well-placed punch or kick to leave your reputation in tatters and everyone laughing. Training with your friends and teacher in your martial arts club is a world away from the ring, and even further from the street. You may have a fierce reputation amongst your friends, but life has no respect for reputation or dignity and it has a funny way of teaching you the hardest lessons.
