Starburstmagazine.com has added a new review for Dayton Ward‘s “Star Trek: Kirk Fu Manual: An Introduction to the Final Frontier’s Most Feared Martial Art”:
As cadets will be aware, although Starfleet is primarily a peaceful organisation, we do on occasion – particularly nowadays – find ourselves in a combat situation. This includes hand-to-hand (not to mention hand-to-claw, hand-to-fin, and sometimes even hand-to-tentacle) combat. It is essential, therefore, that cadets know a variety of defensive and offensive techniques. For this reason, Starfleet Academy has enlisted the existence of one of the most legendary figures in the Federation. A man whose unique fighting style may seem comical to some but is nonetheless highly effective. A man who – although he didn’t necessarily invent all the moves illustrated in this guide – certainly perfected them. The legendary Captain James T. Kirk.
