io9 offers us a breakdown of Captain Kirk’s top 10 martial arts moves. All 10 are fun to watch so why not check out the post and see what martial arts moves you can spot! Three of my favorites:
Martial arts: I see a sloppy aikido knife pin, a knee strike (pick your hard art), a judo throw, and either a sloppy front snap kick or inside crescent from TKD or karate.
Martial arts: The chops come from karate or TKD. We also see a hip throw and Kirk even assumes the mount position. However, he chokes when he has to close the deal!
Martial arts: This one is my favorite. Not so much for Kirk’s fighting prowess but for the fact that the Gorn is an excellent example of my sparing speed. If the Gorn started to wheeze like an asthmatic I might even suspect that it was me!
