Chun Kuk Do

Chuck Norris - Chun Kuk Do

Chun Kuk Do (CKD) is a Korean-based American hard style of karate.  The style was founded by Chuck Norris, and was originally based on Chuck 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), Chuck 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.

Please don't think I am trivialising your post, it is a creoncn that all of us have. But I just wanted to add fruit for thought:As you are a martial artist you are less likely to put yourself in a situation where you would need to use your Kuk Sool skills in a real life situation. You are Zen like and can avoid these situations. Secondly, there are very few skilled martial artists in the world compared to the population who do not do martial arts, and even fewer who actively go out and look to commit acts of violence. Let me ask you as a martial artist how many Kuk Sool Won or other martial arts experts do you think go out looking to harm others?Do not cower in shadow and fear the streets, you are rapidly becomming an expert kuk sool won student yourself, you can look after yourself and your loved ones. You start by not putting them or yourself in danger.
