About UFAF The United Fighting Arts Federation™ (UFAF) is an increasingly worldwide martial arts membership organization founded by Mr. Chuck Norris. Members of the organization study the style of Chun Kuk Do™ ("The Universal Way"), also founded by Mr. Norris. UFAF provides many services and benefits to its member students, instructors, and schools:
Chun Kuk Do (CKD) 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 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.'
