Norris first made his mark as a renowned teacher of martial arts and was a six-time undefeated World Professional Middle Weight Karate Champion. He is the first man from the Western Hemisphere in the over-4500-year tradition of Tae Kwon Do to be awarded an eight-degree Black Belt Grand Master ranking. By the 1970’s, he had revolutionized Martial Arts in the U.S. and created his own system called, “The Chuck Norris System" and is the Founder and Chairman of the United Fighting Arts Federation.
A genuine internet phenomenon, Norris has become the subject of countless Paul Bunyan-type fictional “facts” of his exploits, submitted by fans. There are currently more than a million such “facts”, floating around the internet, often taking the shape of memes. In November of 2009, he came out with The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book, focusing on 101 of his favorite facts and stories.
Norris will say that, next to his family, his most rewarding accomplishment is the creation in 1992 of his KICKSTART KIDS Foundation. The foundation uses karate to teach character building values to students in public schools, giving young people the tools and support needed to resist negative peer pressure, avoid self-destructive behaviors, and make responsible decisions.
Chuck Norris is also a New York Times bestselling author of several books. They include Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America, and the 2004 autobiographical Against All Odds. Norris has also penned two works of fiction, The Justice Riders and A Threat to Justice.
