How do you fake a fight scene?
Start with a shot of Kim throwing her punch at Ron. Right as she would hit him in a real fight, cut to an angle of Ron starting his reaction away from her fist. The cut tells a viewer that contact was made without ever having to show it. Focus on sound design to sell your fake fight scene.
