yi4 chuan2 ji2 bi4 yi4 ren2


Explanation:
yi4= one
chuan2= fist
ji2= to hit
bi4= to die
yi4 ren2 = one person
The caracteres of this phrase would be nicer to look at & more suitable for a chinese novel or an article.
If you want I can sent you the answer in chinese caracteres but you need a special software to read it. I use big 5.
