UFAF_Patch.gifAbout Our Style

The Chuck Norris System (CNS) is a Korean-based American hard style of karate.  The style was founded by Mr. Chuck Norris, and was originally based on Mr. 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), Mr. 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 the Chuck Norris System 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, including the Chuck Norris System, the style was known as Chun Kuk Do from 1990 - 2015. In July 2015, at the annual UFAF International Training Conference (ITC) in Las Vegas, Mr. Norris and the board of directors announced to the membership that we would once again be able to return to using Mr. Norris' name and the Chuck Norris System was reborn

CNS 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.  The Chuck Norris System has come to emphasize self defense, competition, weapons, grappling, fitness, and more

The CNS is not a "Christian" martial art. Dunamis Karate, however, is a Christian karate school. We incorporate the development of Godly characteristics and Biblical principles along with the martial arts training. Our students learn about Compassion, Humility, Honesty, Loyalty and more and they learn how to apply these principles in their martial arts and in their daily lives. 

Acts 1:8 reads ... "But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere – in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Power comes from the Greek word Dunamis which means "strength, power, ability"

It’s pronounced Doo'na-mis!!
