Kirk demonstrates a shoulder roll

A shoulder roll was a type of self-defense move that allowed one to fall without injuring oneself.

In 2266, James T. Kirk offered to teach Charlie a lesson in how to fight in the ship's gymnasium, including how to protect himself with a shoulder roll. After watching Kirk's demonstration, the boy declined, and Kirk ended the lesson. Evans promptly protested and Kirk explained that "you have to learn to protect yourself in a fall first. It's more than teaching you to defend yourself." (TOS: "Charlie X")
