I’ve been a member of the forums on www.mixedmartialarts.com since they first began around 1999. They have a main forum for martial arts-related discussions and another forum called the OtherGround forum for discussions on anything else under the sun. Each year the OG does a short story contest where people vote on their favorite anonymously submitted story. Each of them are under 4k words. One of the 6 stories presented here is mine. Comment below with which you like best please. I’ll post which is mine when the contest is over.
