Hanshi Richard Norton

successful Martial Arts export with over 50 years training in the Martial Arts and a movie career spanning some 30 years.

Norton has trained in many aspects of the Martial Arts including Judo, Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Muay-Thai Kick Boxing and various Japanese weapons systems.

He holds a 8th degree in Zen Do Kai Karate presented by longtime Master, friend and training partner, Soke Bob Jones, a5th degree Shihan ranking in International Goju Ryu Karate, personally presented to him by Hanshi Tino Ceberano, 4th degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under world renowned coach, Jean Jacques Machado. Most recently he received a 5th Degree Master ranking in Chun Kuk Do, personally awarded and presented to him by the legendary Chuck Norris.

Norton is in constant demand for seminars all over the world, covering such topics as real life street defense, martial arts weapons drills and speed training complexes. He has trained extensively in the U.S with such Martial Arts legends as Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, Fumio Demura, Bill Wallace, Pete "Sugar Foot" Cunningham, Rigan and Jean Jacques Machado and of course his old friend, Chuck Norris. Norton's movie career has seen him co-star alongside such greats as Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris, David Carradine and the great Sammo Hung. Norton's movie career started in 1979 as the head enforcer in Chuck Norris, The Octagon. He went on to work with Jackie Chan in Hong Kong in the early 80′s in a movie called Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Stars. He later co starred in City Hunter and had a co lead in Chan's, Mr. Nice Guy. In fact Norton is the only western Martial Artist ever to be invited back to work on more than one project with Jackie in one of his Hong Kong movies, which in itself is a remarkable testimonial of the respect Mr. Chan has for Richard's acting and action abilities.

Norton now has over 60 movie roles to his credit. Aside from acting, Richard is also highly sought after as a 2nd Unit Director and Stunt/ Fight Coordinator.

Norton also toured for over 15 years as a personal Body Guard and trainer for such leading Rock Musicians as The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac, Joe Cocker and ABBA.
