What a lucky guy...
Bullet proof? If I were that guy I'd set that jacket with fire, then fire a few HE shells from something at the thing for good measure.
...to make sure I didn't catch whatever disease turned Chuck Norris into a pansy. Never understood why anyone has thought Chuck Norris is anything more than a total wimp.
Norris was defeated in his first two tournaments, dropping decisions to Joe Lewis and Allen Steen and three matches at the International Karate Championships to Tony Tulleners. By 1967 Norris had improved enough that he scored victories over the likes of Lewis, Skipper Mullins, Arnold Urquidez, Victor Moore, Ron Marchini, and Steve Sanders. In early 1968, Norris suffered the tenth and last loss of his career, losing an upset decision to Louis Delgado. On November 24, 1968, he avenged his defeat to Delgado and by doing so won the Professional Middleweight Karate champion title, which he held for six consecutive years. In 1969, he won Karate's triple crown for the most tournament wins of the year, and the Fighter of the Year award by Black Belt Magazine.
Norris made history in 1990 when he was the first Westerner in the documented history of Tae Kwon Do to be given the rank of 8th Degree Black Belt Grand Master. In 1999, Norris was inducted into the Martial Arts History Museum's Hall of Fame. On July 1, 2000, Norris was presented the Golden Lifetime Achievement Award by the World Karate Union Hall of Fame.
Norris created the martial art Chun Kuk Do, which is based primarily on Tang Soo Do and includes elements from every combat style he knows.
So basically, he's not some superhuman, but he was still a pretty tough dude in his prime, and was a fun actor back in the day.
So, yeah. I like Chuck Norris. Good guy, and fun actor in some epic and some cheesy movies lol.
Lol you don't say dude?
