Chuck is the founder of Chun Kuk Do ("Universal Way"). Schools that train in his method are apart of the United Fighting Arts Federation (UFAF).

Wow he create dhis own system of MA? I never knew that. I knew he was part of that organization but I had no idea about his own fighting system. I seriously doubt he strayed away from Tang Soo Do, TKD and Judo. It's probably a combination of all 3. The name of his system is that in Korean or in Japanese?

Norris has indicated in his autobiography that he has black belts in Tang Soo Do, Taekwondo, and is founder of Chun Kuk Do ("Universal Way"). Mr. Norris has also practiced Judo, Shinto-Ryu Karate, and Brazilian jujutsu. He is also founder of The United Fighting Arts Federation (UFAF).

Quoted by Chuck Norris's Official Website:
In 1997, Chuck achieved another milestone in his life by being the first man ever in the Western Hemisphere to be awarded an 8th degree Black Belt Grand Master recognition in the Tae Kwon Do system. This was a first in 4,500 years of tradition.

Actually that's incorrect about the first westerner to be awarded an 8th dan in TKD. Years before two other Americans Charles Sereff and Edward Sell had received that honor.

I'm a black belt in American Tang Soo Do, the original system he developed before he renamed it Chun Kuk Do in around 1990 or 1991. My instructor was a black belt under him back in the 1970s. So this is what I know about his MA background based on what has been written and my instructor and other senior black belts under Norris.

Chuck originally trained in Judo and reached brown belt before injuring his shoulder. In 1960 while recovering he began to train in Tang Soo Do Moo Duk Kwan and eventually earned his black belt in it. Chuck taught traditional TSD-MDK up until 1966 or so. It was around that time that he perceived that TSD-MDK had a lot of weaknesses especially in the punching area. Norris began training with shotokan masters Hidetake Nishiyama and Tsutomu Oshima, Gosaku-ryu founder Tak Kubata, shito-ryu master Fumio Demura, American Kenpo founder Ed Parker, and the legandary "Judo" Gene LeBell. Norris added techniques from each of those systems into his own. The system was referred to by some as American Tang Soo Do or the Chuck Norris Karate System. In the late 1980s he began training in Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu and made it mandatory for his "students" to train in as part of his Chun Kuk Do system (named originated in 1991).

The only MAs that Chuck Norris legitimately earned black belt in were traditional Tang Soo Do, Judo, and BJJ (under the Machado brothers). His 8th dan black belt in TKD from what I understand was just an "honorary" promotion given to him because he's Chuck Norris. Chuck has not formal training in TKD, if one were to ask him to perform a TKD form I'd bet the farm he wouldn't be able to demonstrate one.

I wasn't aware that Chuck had a black belt in TKD, I thought his mother style was TSD. I tried Chun Kuk Do before. It seemed like a cross between TSD and BJJ with Kobudo thrown in for good measure.

And why would he (or anyone) want to? You are talking about a man who had his tonsils removed with a chainsaw and can blow bubbles with beef jerky.
