An unabashed celebration of Captain James T. Kirk’s singular fighting skills, Star Trek: Kirk Fu Manual [March 3, 2020; $14.99] is every Starfleet cadet’s must-have training guide for surviving the final frontier.
As captain of the legendary U.S.S. Enterprise, James T. Kirk engaged in his share of fisticuffs, besting opponents with a slick combination of moves and guile that remains unmatched. Is there anyone you’d rather have watching your back as you take on Klingons, alien gladiators, genetically engineered supermen, and even the occasional giant walking reptile?
Kirk Fu is a series of unarmed combat techniques developed by one of Starfleet’s most celebrated starship captains over several years of exploring deep space. A blend of various fighting styles, Kirk Fu incorporates elements of several Earth-based martial arts forms as well as cruder methods employed in bars and back alleys on planets throughout the galaxy. It is as unorthodox in practice as it is unbelievable to behold.
Including excerpts from Kirk’s own notes and personal logs, the Star Trek: Kirk Fu Manual published by Insight Editions under license of ViacomCBS Consumer Products is the perfect training guide for surviving the depths of space. With proper training and practice, every Starfleet cadet can become one with Kirk Fu.
