History - Burnette Karate

Proudly continuing the original Tirschel Karate Chuck Norris Super System tradition.


Burnette Karate was founded in 1984 in Riverdale, Georgia and now located in McDonough, Georgia. We were founded as a member of Chuck Norris' United Fighting Arts Federation. The Chuck Norris Karate System, as it was known at the time, is based on traditional Tang Soo Do. In reality it is one of the first mixed martial arts systems to develop utilizing techniques from many other styles to give our students a well rounded curriculum including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Boxing, Kickboxing, and Eskrima as well as the traditional art of Tang Soo Do. Although we are now members of the American Fighting Arts Federation, (AFAF), we still teach the same system.
