This Sport Kicks Ass

Hey, kids! Chuck Norris wants you to be careful when you are searching for facts about him on the Internet. You see, not everything is true (no, he really cannot make a woman climax just by pointing at her and saying, “Booya!”), and not everything is suitable for young eyes. But by going to his official Website (, you will find fascinating tidbits about the star of your favorite show, Walker, Texas Ranger. Like, did you know that before he was a big movie star, Norris was a martial arts star? He was also a renowned martial arts teacher who trained other stars, including Steve McQueen, Bob Barker, Priscilla Presley, and Donnie and Marie Osmond. So cool! Norris is also the founder and president of the United Fighting Arts Federation and the brains behind the World Combat League. Tonight Norris will be at the James L. Knight Center to present what he describes as “full-throttle martial arts fighting action,” when professional fighters “let it fly.” Is this really a sport? Oh, yeah. Points are scored based on knockouts, knockdowns, and damaging blows. Watch the Miami Force take on the New England Strikers beginning at 8:00. Tickets range from $25 to $75.
