Wanna learn martial arts? Then you should take it from the experts! Here’s a list of legendary martial artists of all times that you make as your inspiration
Chuck Norris is absolutely amazing with his fighting stunts in the many films that he made, but what many of us don’t know that he has a judo, Tae Kwan Do, Tang SooDo,and Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt status. He even created his very own martial arts fighting style, the Chun-Kok Do. Since 1964 until his retirement in 1973, Norris also had a fulfilling career on karate tournament; he has won more or less 30 matches.
Apart from that, Norris also held the prestigious title as World Professional Middleweight Karate Champion for six years; he has even defeated karate legends Joe Lewis, Louis Delgado, and Allen Steen.
Bruce Lee is long gone, but many of us still knew him as the world’s most famous martial arts movie actor. Lee was the pioneer for martial arts acting; he has appeared in some films and among them are The Way of the Dragon and the popular TV series The Green Hornet. Lee is sometimes called as the father of mixed martial arts since he was the first one not to follow the traditional “this is how you do it” style. His signature martial arts style was Jeet Kune Do, but he also knew other martial arts style including Jujitsu, Wing Chun, Judo, Filipino arts, Judo, and even boxing.
Royce Gracie is one of the best martial artists to consider as an inspiration. He was the first ever to win three of four UFC championship belts in 193, and he did that by just using Brazilian Jiu Jitsu’s grappling art that his father invented. Gracie was given a 6th-degree black belt for his expertise.
