Rare Footage Shows Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme Training Together

Decades before the term Mixed Martial Arts or MMA even existed it was guys like Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, and a bit later Jean Claude Van Damme that got people interested in learning martial arts.   Their movies portrayed guys who knew the likes of Karate, Muay Thai, Jujitsu, Judo, and plenty of others as heroes who could take out bands of villains with their legs and fists.  Before MMA centers around the country existed, it was the dojo that you could find in a local shopping mall if you wanted to learn from the best.

If you were lucky, back in the 80s you might get an appearance from none other than these awesome movie stars.  And if you were really lucky you’d get to see Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme together.  Unfortunately that was a rarity but today we came across some coverage from 1984 of Chuck Norris training with Van Damme.

Essentially Norris is using Van Damme as his personal punching bag which I can only imagine would have been the case if these two really fought it out back then.  Check out the clip below:
