Silent Fist

Silent Fist

A praying Buddhist cannot pray because of the thumping noise next door at the boxing ring. The Buddhist approaches the Boxer, who ridicules his free spirit. The boxer challenges him to a duel in the ring where the Buddhist has to lean on his internal strength and passive ways.
