    Isn’t this just qIpmeH ro’ lo’? It’s even in the definition of qIp: “hit (with hand, fist, implement)”.

      Perhaps Klingons may not distinguishes between ‘with fist’ and ‘with implement’. So there are no word for ‘punch’. If Okrand decide so, I’ll comply.
      I also want a new word or how to say ‘tuckle’, ‘elbow-strike’ and other words for hand-to-hand combat…

    Do you mean ‘tackle’? As in ‘tackle football’? That would be a great chabal mu’.

        You’ll need to make “tackle” a seperate suggestion. Each suggestion should be for a single concept, not a group or category of similar words.

        • chaDQI says:

          Do’Ha’, yapbe’ 10 mu’mey. I’ll try to request ‘tackle’ next year…
