Learn about Chun Kuk Do - A Martial Arts System created by Chuck Norris

Chun Kuk Do is a Korean and American martial arts hybrid system created by Chuck Norris (martial artist and movie star).

According to the United Fighting Arts Federation, Chun Kuk Do "was founded by Mr. Chuck Norris, and was originally based on Mr. Norris' Tang Soo Do training in Korea while he was in the military. During his unprecedented competitive fighting career (undefeated world middleweight karate champion six years running), Mr. Norris began to evolve the style to make it more effective and well-rounded. He did this through committed study of other systems which he felt would complement his Tang Soo Do foundation. This evolution, along with his personal commitment to excellence, resulted in his phenomenal success. This openness continues today, as Chun Kuk Do continues to evolve to include aspects of other systems, or completely original aspects which make it more complete. Having gone by several names since the early 70's, the style has been known as Chun Kuk Do since 1990. The name is loosely translated to mean "The Universal Way." The Korean terms actually mean 'the way of 1000 lands,' or 'the way of many lands.'

CKD is not an ad hoc collection of various techniques from different systems. Rather, it is a style with a deeply-rooted traditional foundation of its own - now unique and different from its Tang Soo Do predecessor - to which various other elements that complement its fundamentals have been added. Chun Kuk Do has come to emphasize self defense, competition, weapons, grappling, fitness, and more."
