for the Martial Artist....****Some spoilers***** There really isn't that much in this book. It refers to a boxing gym where people trained and learned sparing skills, which ties 4 of the characters together: who was gifted, who wasn't. There are 2 characters (women) who are trained in Kickboxing and there are several scenes where they defend themselves using these skills. Other scenes of fighting are a couple blows, but they aren't that specifically described other than "a kick to the jaw and he felt his nose break for the 2nd time that week"....then there is a man who is a retired fighter who has some interesting cerebral moments as he thinks of how he is going to defeat an opponent who won't go down. I don't know the page count but at most a chapters worth. The characters are Lisbeth Salander,Mimmi, Palo Roberto, "the giant", wasp....Best I can say since I listened rather than read.
