Martial arts expert-turned-actor Norris,who last year starred in a two-hour Walker,Texas Ranger TV movie called Trial By Fire,will soon add another acomplishment to his resume:author.He's preparing to release The Justice Riders,the first of what he plans as a series of novels set in the Old West,with all profits going to Norris' Texas based Kickstart Foundation,which trains troubled kids in martial arts and points them on the right path-just as martial arts did for him. "I was an at-risk kid," Norris admits."I grew up in poverty with an alchoholic father who was gone all the time.I could have gone the wrong way very easily.Fortunately,my mom kept me on the right trail,and the martial arts turned my life around."




Kudos to you Chuck.

I like Chuck as a role model to kids. The way he takes the "facts" jokes and critiques of his acting speaks well of him.

I've never seen his response to these things. How does he react to them?

I saw an interview where Chuck seemed surprised that people were bothering to make jokes about him - but surprised in a humble kind of way. He was almost flattered, and was not mad or upset at all. I thought he handled it in a very classy way.

Just incase someone somewhere is reading this and knows him, this is by no means an insult... he is one of the best Senseis I have trained under.

That's great that all the money goes to his kickstart foundation. I myself try and gets kids off the street with martial arts. I know it my sound strange but I think it has worked a little so far.

I saw video of him on a sports talk show, he was reading the jokes and poking a little fun at himself. I'll try to find the link and post it. I've heard that an interviewer once asked him about David Carradine's ability as a martial artist and Chuck responded: "He's every bit the martial artist that I am an actor" or somesuch. Of course, it's a quote from some puke on a message board, so assume a questioning attitude.

Ok, all the Chuck jokes have been posted several times on different forums. If it continues here I'll lock the thread.
