I’ve been rewatching the OT and rereading some of the EU novels, I’ve never realized how much of a badass Luke is in unarmed combat.
-He front-kicked one of Jabbas thugs in the face
-He side-kicked Darth Vader down a flight of stairs
-During his duel with Jacen Solo he drops him with an elbow to the face, cracks Jacens teeth with a knee to the chin, knocks him into the air with a kick in the stomach, elbows him again this time breaking a bone
-During his fight with Abeloth he stomped-kicked through her knee, knife-handed her throat, grappled her onto the ground and killed her by smashing open her head with his elbow
-He completely wrecked Darth Krayt by throwing him onto the ground and stomping out his knee, despite being exhausted from fighting Abeloth
When did Luke learn how to fight like that?
