Kevin James Teaches Kimmel All About Self Defense By Attacking Him On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Kevin James may not be most people's first pick as someone who looks like they might be an MMA fighter, but he is. Or at least, he plays one in the upcoming film "Here Comes the Boom." The film is about James, a former college wrestler who's now a biology teacher, who takes up mixed martial arts in an effort to save the music program at his school. So he picked up a few moves during filming, which he shared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

He decided to take his newfound knowledge and teach Jimmy Kimmel a little something about self-defense. So he had a guy grab Kimmel from behind and then went after him." Kimmel was completely caught off guard, and did little to defend himself.

But it was hilarious for the audience, and viewers at home. Maybe Kevin James can teach self defense to all of the other talk show hosts as well.

"Here Comes the Boom," starring Kevin James, opens nationwide on Friday, October 12. Catch "Jimmy Kimmel Live" every weeknight at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
