Rah Black is an ex-street fighter turned entrepreneur who vows never to use a gun after his brother is shot. Upon his return home from prison, Rah runs into problems with a ruthless fight promoter named Worldwide who runs an Underground Fight Game (a mean, unorthodox, boxing/martial arts freestyle form of fighting that has no rules). Rah quickly realizes that "home" is not the place that he left behind. Rah has a real problem with the way this Underground Fight Game is influencing the teaching and training of the martial arts, and he sets out to put a stop to it. When Rah's best friend is forced into a fight and is humiliated - Rah must once again take his rightful place back in the Dojo - and in the ring using the only weapons he needs... "The Empty Hands". "The Empty Hands" is laced with knockdown, old school karate fights, street culture, romance and dark humor. Written by Anonymous
