My fear with this scene is that I've dragged it out too long (there's still a few more pages to come). I was trying to make something a little more interesting than your run of the mill fight scene, but I'm not sure if the scene ran away from me here. Pang had already been outed as a Shaolin monk on page 129, so he could have just kicked ass on page 131, right? But I wanted him to be pushed to the limit. I just don't want the reader to feel like the scene is dancing around what's inevitable.
I agree! The pacing is good. It reads pretty fast. It says a lot about Pang's character that it takes five or six pages to get him to do more than just defend himself. From Pang's point of view, it's not inevitable. That's the point.
