Chuck Norris Net Worth: Chuck Norris is an American martial artist and actor who has a net worth of $70 million. Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris was born March 10, 1940 in Ryan, Oklahoma. After serving in the United States Air Force, he began his rise to fame as a martial artist, and has since founded his own school, Chun Kuk Do. Norris appeared in a number of action films, such as Way of the Dragon, in which he starred alongside Bruce Lee, and The Cannon Group. He played the starring role in the television series Walker, Texas Ranger (1993-2001). Since 2005 Norris has been widely associated with an internet meme which documents fictional and often absurd feats associated with him. Within his karate studios, he taught several celebrities, including Priscilla Presley and actor Steve McQueen. McQueen was the one who encouraged his teacher to try acting. In addition to being an instructor, Norris was also a fierce competitor and participated in numerous martial arts tournaments. Norris earned his first World Middleweight Karate Championship title in 1968. Proving to be one of the greatest fighters in martial arts, he defended this title five more times, retiring after his 1974 victory. Norris began his acting career in a brief appearance in the film Return of the Dragon (1973). Critics considered his acting "stiff", but movie audiences loved to watch him dish out swift justice to the bad guys and Norris continued to land roles in action films. Norris has been a longtime supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the United Way. In 1992, Norris started his own charitable organization called Kickstart with help from President George Bush. Kickstart provides martial arts training to middle-school students to teach them respect and discipline and to improve their self-esteem. Norris is a devout Christian and politically conservative.
