Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris


Creo que todos los que nos dedicamos a las artes marciales reconocemos que gracias a Bruce Lee a su inmensa popularidad estamos donde estamos. Sin l, sus pel culas, series de televisi n, libros y gran rebeld a, las artes de lucha orientales no hubieran pasado de ser lo que siempre fueron, un sistema ancestral de pelea transmitido de generaci n en generaci n. Chuck Norris es una de las muchas personas que a la sombra de Bruce Lee alcanzaron pronto gran fama mundial, lo mismo que le sucediera a su alumno Dan Inosanto, hoy nico representante moral del Jeet Kune Do. Justo es reconocer que esta fama no hubiera sido posible si detr's de ellos no hubiera un buen artista marcial, producto de miles y miles de horas de duro trabajo.Por desgracia, el cine de artes marciales fue poco a poco decayendo y los intentos de realizar una buena pel cula no resultaron. No bastaba ya conque intervinieran conocidos luchadores (se prob con Joe lewis, Bill Wallace, Ed Parker, Dan Inosanto, Benny Urqu'dez, etc.), ni tampoco con buscar nuevos 'dolos semejantes a Bruce Lee, como es el caso de Jackie Chan. El p blico ya no mostraba inter's con el tema de artes marciales y las distribuidoras se negaban a sacar las pocas que les ofrec an. Algunas, como "La serpiente a la sombra del guila", "El retorno del Ninja", "Por encima de la ley" o " Fuerza 7", tuvieron modestos resultados econ micos, pero el xito no continu .Chuck Norris sigui perseverando apoyado por la Cannon Group, pero en los ltimos a os esta ayuda se acab junto con la productora, y solamente le vemos ya en la interminable serie televisiva Ranger Walker . Tambi n ha aparecido en programas de televisi n y radio, ha sido modelo de pijamas en Play Boy, fue convocado por el Presidente Ronald Reagan, entrevistado en las mejores revistas de Estados Unidos, y actor de cine en Filipinas, Israel, M xico y un gran n mero de pa'ses a lo largo del globo. Poco amante de los esc ndalos, su nombre brilla un poco m's cada d a, sin que por ello olvidemos que sus comienzos como hombre popular datan del a o 1960, fecha en que fue entrevistado por la revista Black Belt cuando alborot el torneo de Karate con sus patadas y golpes a media vuelta. Pero su paternidad hizo que las revistas especializadas se olvidaran pronto de l, por lo que abandon la competici n y trabaj duramente para vender su imagen, hasta lograr ser una gran estrella de las pel culas de acci n y poseer una gran cadena de escuelas de Karate.
