ABOUT THE UNITED FIGHTING ARTS FEDERATION AND
CHUN KUK DO
The United Fighting Arts Federation is a worldwide martial arts membership organization founded by Chuck Norris. Members of the organization study the style of Chun Kuk Do. UFAF is the governing and sanctioning body for the Chun Kuk Do style, providing technical standards for instruction and advancement in the system.
Chun Kuk Do is a Korean-based American hard style of karate. The style was founded by Norris and was originally based on his Tang Soo Do training in Korea while he was in the military. Having gone by several names since the early 1970s, the style has been known as Chun Kuk Do since 1990. The name is loosely translated to mean “The Universal Way.” (Literally translated, “The way of 1,000 lands” or “The way of many lands.”) Chun Kuk Do has come to emphasize self defense, competition, weapons, grappling, fitness and more.
