In the age of Internet memes, Chuck Norris has been credited with causing climate change, time travelling, and combining the world's martial arts into a single super style. Only one of these is true. Based on his long-standing love for and study of the fighting arts, Mr. Norris mixed, blended, and puréed all his knowledge into the style known as Chun Kuk Do, Korean for "way of many lands."
Tara Cox and Kenny Gallacher—instructors and co-owners of Cox & Gallacher Martial Arts—both bear black belts in the multinational form. They teach students self-defense techniques, grappling, and even weapon-based fighting styles drawn from such diverse forms as Korean tae kwon do and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. All of their combat and fitness training espouses the virtues of discipline, integrity, loyalty, and respect, the only four words in the song the Secret Service sings to presidents while they lull him to sleep.
