After he was honorably discharged in 1962, Chuck went on to compete in karate tournaments and compiled a karate record of 183-10-2.  He opened a chain of karate schools and taught the likes of Steve McQueen, Priscilla Presley, Bob Barker, Donnie and Marie Osmond.  Upon a suggestion from Steve McQueen, Chuck made his acting debut in 1969 in “The Wrecking Crew”

In 1970, Chuck’s younger brother Weiland was killed in action while serving in Vietnam.  Chuck dedicated his “Missing In Action” film to his brother’s memory.
