BIOGRAPHY

Chuck Norris was bornon 10 March 1940 in Ryan, Oklahoma, United States, American, is Martial artist. Carlos Ray “Chuck” Norris is a martial art expert who has appeared in a number of action films and television roles. He is most famous for being a martial artist and for founding his own school of martial arts, Chun Kuk Do. For this highly respected individual, who grew up as a mediocre and shy child who was not in the least athletically inclined, name and fame seemed to be a farfetched dream. While serving in the United States Air Force as an Air Policeman he was stationed at the Osan Air Base in South Korea where his interest in martial arts began. He began training in Tang Soo Do and earned black belts in that art which paved the way for him to become a martial artist. He went on to open a chain of Karate schools after his discharge from the Air Force and founded his own martial arts school, the Chun Kuk Do. In his illustrious career as a martial artist, he has scored victories over renowned experts like Skipper Mullins, Victor Moore and Steve Sanders. He not only won the Professional Middleweight Karate champion title, but also held it for six consecutive years. In addition to being a martial artist and an actor, Norris is also a well known author of Christian books.
