Zach has the higher Basic Speed, so he goes first.
Uses his Step to move forward 1 hex, rolls 3d6 twice against his effective Karate skill of 11 (-5 for Hit Location: Face, -2 for Kick) and gets 11 and 10 - two possible hits.
As this was a hit to the Face sufficient to cause a Shock penalty, Arthur must check for Knockdown and Stunning (B420). He rolls 3d6 against his HT of 10 and gets 9 - he suffers no penalty beyond ordinary Shock.
5 points of crushing basic damage to the Face - 0 DR leaves 5 points of penetrating damage. Arthur's HP are further reduced to 4, and his Shock penalty is increased to the maximum of -4.
As this was a hit to the Face sufficient to cause a Shock penalty, Arthur must check for Knockdown and Stunning. He rolls 3d6 against his HT of 10 and gets 10 - he suffers no penalty beyond ordinary Shock.
Rolls 3d6 against his effective Karate skill of 10 (-4 to hit a weapon of reach 1, -2 for Disarm, -2 for Kick) and gets 10 - a possible hit. (Note that it is legal to attempt a disarm immediately following a Ready maneuver.)
Arthur loses the Quick Contest - the GM rolls 1d6 to determine the direction his weapon flies (B414) and gets 5, then places the disarmed weapon on the map.
Uses his Step to move forward 1 hex into Arthur's hex, rolls 3d6 against his effective Karate skill of 13 (-3 for Hit Location: Vitals, -2 for Lethal Strike) and gets 12 - a possible hit.
As this is a Major Wound (more than 1/2 HP injury from a single blow), Arthur must check for Knockdown and Stunning (B420). He rolls 3d6 against his effective HT of 7 (-5 for Hit Location: Vitals) and gets 10 - he falls down prone and suffers Stun.
He also has less than 1/3 his HP, so his Move and Dodge are halved.
As he is below 0 HP, Arthur rolls 3d6 against his HT of 12 to avoid falling unconscious and fails with a 13 - he immediately collapses into unconsciousness.
Since the combat did not last longer than 10 seconds, Zach does not lose any Fatigue Points (B426).
