Chuck Norris: Action Hero to Internet Sensation
Chuck Norris stared the Devil in the face, and the Devil backed down. FACT!
I wouldn’t blame him either if I was face-to-face with one of the most feared martial arts legends of all time. After returning from Air Force duty in Korea, with a new knowledge of Korean martial arts, Norris developed his own fighting style known as Chun Kuk Do, “The Universal Way.” Losing only 10 fights in his career, he made his way up through the ranks and became the first westerner to receive the rank of 8th degree Black Belt Grand Master. Upon reaching fame as a martial artist in the ‘70s, Norris took to the screen starting out as an action star working with the likes of Bruce Lee and Steve McQueen.
In the ‘80s his fame started to fade, but was resurrected a decade later by his signature role as Sgt. Cordell Walker on “Walker, Texas Ranger”. Needless to say, he is a modern-day icon; the man almost made it on Mount Rushmore but the granite wasn’t tough enough for his beard. He will live on eternally as an Internet meme, known for his impossible feats. For example, did you know that Chuck Norris has already been to Mars? That's why there are no signs of life.
