Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris have had one of the longest rivalries in the history of Hollywood. The question everyone has been asking, who would win in a fight between Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris? This article looks into this epic battle that has entertained audiences over the years and gives you all the information you need to make your own decision on who would win, Steven Seagal or Chuck Norris.
How many martial arts do they know?
This is a bit tricky to answer. Both are known for their Hollywood films and both have a black belt in Kenpo Karate and are considered 9th Dan (Norris) and 7th Dan (Seagal). Though Norris’ later style seems to vary, he maintains a strong influence from traditional Japanese martial arts and Seagal has a more modern Americanized style that derives from Aikido, Jujitsu, Judo and Karate among others. Even though they’re probably equal in terms of rank, experience and theoretical understanding, both men have different strengths that would lend themselves well to an epic battle (if you can think about it…without giggling too much).
How fast are they?
Both Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris are from America. That alone puts them at a disadvantage against other action movie stars like Jackie Chan, Jet Li, or even Jean-Claude Van Damme! It’s about time we put that to rest… So how fast can these two movie legends really be? Let’s take a look at their top speeds… The average person runs about 5 miles per hour (8 kilometers per hour). The fastest human ever recorded was Usain Bolt who ran 100 meters in 9.58 seconds at 27.78 miles per hour (44.72 kilometers per hour).
This is a far cry from our action heroes though as they will have to do more than just run away! A black belt in Karate such as Steven Seagal can kick his leg forward with an incredible speed of approximately 70 miles per hour (112 kilometers per hour). However, he cannot run faster than 30 miles per hour (48 kilometers per hour) while he is running on foot because he is not used to moving around quickly due to his size and weight.
Do they kill with their hands or feet?
There are many interesting facts about these two popular action movie stars, but first we must explore which technique they prefer when it comes to killing their enemies. When you think of martial arts, one tends to wonder if they kill with their hands or feet? In a fight would I want to be on either side? Would I rather take on a hand-killing martial artist or one who prefers to go for foot kills? If a martial artist were using his hands how quickly would I need to get out of dodge or block those lethal punches?
And what kind of damage could I do by blocking those hits and then counter attacking with my own hand killing strikes as well as kicks and knees? How can I defend myself against someone who is kicking me from all angles? These are all important questions that come up when discussing Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris. Although there is no clear winner in our epic battle between Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris, there will always be a debate over which one is better. So let’s start off by taking a look at some basic information about each man:
What is their special skill?
Both Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris are famous for their martial arts skills, but there are some differences in how they use their powers. While Seagal is a practitioner of Aikido, and is widely seen as one of its best practitioners in Hollywood, he has become better known over time for his career as an actor and director than his actual fighting skill.
Who would win in a fight between Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris?
If you put these two unlikely opponents in a fight, would it be a close one? As you can probably imagine, both are pretty unbelievable in their own right and have made their way into pop culture history books through action movies and shows; they are definitely recognized by many younger people who aren’t familiar with them as well (thanks to those same action movies that have been playing on repeat over time).
But here’s what they do share: they’ve done martial arts training, have starred in some amazing action films throughout history that most everyone is familiar with and have helped pave a way for other actors to shine as well (through lessons learned and inspiration). They’re both self-made men who are still doing what they love to do today.
Action Movies – Above the Law, Under Siege, Out For Justice, etc.
Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris are two actors that portray martial artists on film, but is there a real rivalry between these actors? Since no one has ever seen a real picture of either man outside of films it’s hard to tell just how much beef there is, but you can bet your ass both stars have almost more action films than The Rock.
Here we will weigh each actor against his counterpart on his film catalogue, box office draw and ratings from Rotten Tomatoes to see who really is The Greatest Martial Artist in Action Movies! Let’s do it…
