Video: William Shatner On His ‘Star Trek’ Drop Kick
  |  @   |  

Any fan of Star Trek knows that one of William Shatner‘s common fighting techniques as Captain James T. Kirk was the drop kick. If Kirk was in a fight, someone was getting drop kicked at some point.

In Shatner’s latest Shatner Project video, the actor talks with his daughter about trying to use the famous Kirk drop-kick in a real life situation and realizing it’s a lot different when the recipient of the kick is not a stunt man!

Watch the video here below.

While the Kirk drop-kick is certainly a favorite, there’s one move that’s not only awesome to watch, but hilarious in its execution too. In “Journey To Babel,” Kirk squares off with the disguised Andorian Thelev on a conveniently empty deck aboard USS Enterprise. It’s during this melee that Kirk knocks Thelev to the ground and instead of kicking him so he’ll stay down, Kirk instead jumps up and pushes off the wall in some kind of fake wrestling maneuver attempting to land on Thelev.

Unfortunately, Kirk kind of misses, putting himself in a vulnerable position on the ground … where he then gets stabbed — but, they, it’s in the script. My point it, that’s an awesomely hilarious move on Kirk’s part and I can’t help but rewind that scene over and over again. Gotta love The Shat.

Watch the “Journey to Babel” fight scene here below (it’s 50 seconds in). If you want to watch the entire episode (highly suggested, it’s a great one — we meet Spock’s parents), it’s available for free online at Hulu (the fight scene begins at 28:07, Kirk’s jump off the wall is at 28:26).
