KGT has a slang term: 
paw' (collide) but lists no simple non-slang term.

CK mentions butting heads, but I havent quite worked out exactly what was
being said from the tape, the best I could come up with was the following
dialogue segment (TT - terran tourist, KG - Klingon Guide):
TT    What's happening over there?   pa'Daq qaStaHnuq.
KG    Klingon warriors are butting heads.    qIp'egh nachDu'chaj

Was I close?

Where is the canon master when you need him. ;)
