The classic movie is a must watch for every person, whether they like karate or not. It is one of the greatest movies ever made and has one of the greatest fight scenes in cinematic history.

There’s certainly a lot to admire about Chuck Norris. Few have lived as interesting a life as he has.

Happy birthday, Chuck!
