Is rule number three the correct wording? Do we have some citing info?

I've reverted the text in the article to the version of the code presented in the Chuck Norris entry. If it gets vandalised again might be worth making the page semi-protected so people can't write their own "hilarious" versions of the code. Alex

Alex, I hate to say it, but maybe there needs to be a Chuck Norris page that talks about how much he's now a "living/parody/legend/folk hero/joke/national treasure." Its not a fad, its just not dying... Greenshinobi (talk) 22:40, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Chinese characters[edit]

What would be the Chinese character for Chun?. Kuk do would be 国道. --Jondel 09:38, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

천국도 should be 千國道

The official website has an about our founder section, which is about chuck norris. so either the official site is wrong, or chuck is the founder. now the source is Cited.

What is the applicability of Chinese characters for Chun Kuk Do? This martial art emurged from Korean Tang Soo Do.Greenshinobi (talk) 00:03, 28 November 2010 (UTC)Greenshinobi

Many Korean words and word components were borrowed from Chinese (a bit like how many English words and word components come from Greek and Latin). However, often different words sound the same (like "oral" vs "aural" in many varieties of English), so asking for the Chinese spelling of those words - assuming they are made up of words or components borrowed from Chinese - helps to understand the meaning. (I was also wondering how Chun Kuk Do is spelled in Chinese characters.) -- pne (talk) 08:48, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Ahh. That makes sense. Thank you!Greenshinobi (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 02:18, 22 February 2012 (UTC).


I believe this page has been hacked, because some of the rules here are obviously conflicting with Mr. Norris's outlook on life.

Better Picture[edit]

Can anyone find a more suitable picture for this article? An image of Chuck Norris holding an award isn't very fitting for a Martial Arts Form. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Illuminatis Phage (talkcontribs) 16:50, 17 January 2007 (UTC).

They've tried to photograph the CHUCK NORRIS ROUNDHOUSE KICK, but the wind generated by the kick kept shattering the camera lenses.207.69.137.205 08:11, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Belt color ranks[edit]

I'm new to CKD, and I am not in any way an expert, but I don't think any of the two-colored belts. From what I gather, they're only given out to child students so they don't have to cover as much material for a single test. My instructor mentioned something along the lines that I don't have to go through them because I'm considered an adult student, and my red belt friend has never made any mention of them. If someone more knowledgable can correct me, please do, but until then, I'll leave a note in the section.-SA-

I have some UFAF material that suggests that regions can have sub groupings under belts, and even stripes on the belts. For example, some schools had yellow belt between white and purple and others went from white to purple. Also, I think there are 2 levels of blue belt, three levels of green and three of red. The issue is all of the stuff I have is printed up by UFAF and not a third party source. At some point, people need to understand that citing a primary source is appropriate in certain circumstances.Greenshinobi (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 02:16, 22 February 2012 (UTC).

I've contacted the head office for Chun Kuk Do / United Fighting Arts Federation. They have a camera ready artwork version of the logo but do not want to grant use for it because they are worried about copyright issues and vandalism. I'm thinking of getting a photograph of the patch itself, which might be more in line with fair use rules. (Note: I'm not connected with the subject, I'm just trying to get a better wiki page for various martial arts pages) Greenshinobi (talk) 18:39, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

  • There is an error in the infobox on this page, as the template appears as hard code and does not generate the infobox. 158.81.13.147 20:38, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Corrected ranks[edit]

As a former student of about two years at Kurek Champion Martial Arts, headed by a 6th degree black in the style, I can confirm the currently-posted ranks as accurate. Having attended four tournaments, I can also attest that Green Stripe and Red stripe aren't exclusively given junior students, as the site would suggest; I see a number of adults with them as well, especially on the red stripe. I've never heard of a brown belt in the style; perhaps this is mainly a kickstart convention? I'm aware they have a slightly different program from the most of the commercial schools... User:sa9097 —Preceding undated comment added 20:25, 29 July 2009 (UTC).

When I took classes... about 15 years ago, the belts were None (you had to test for the first belt), White, Yellow, Purple, Orange, Blue, Green (without stripe and then with), Brown (no stripe and stripe), Red (No stripe and stripe), and then Black. FWIW, the change to the name of Chun Kuk Do happened somewhere in the middle of there, although the belt systems did not change at the time. -Fuzzy (talk) 16:02, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

I'm working on getting citations for this article. A cursory trip to the library (a place where they have books) has revealed many articles in many publications that cover CKD/UFAF. Greenshinobi (talk) 18:41, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
