Richard Norton (born January 6, 1950, in Australia) is a martial artist, action film star, and stuntman. Norton worked as a bodyguard in the entertainment business before pursuing an acting career. His first screen appearance was in the 1980 Chuck Norris film The Octagon, and to date he has worked on over 70 feature films and television programs.

He is particularly known for his appearances in Hong Kong action films, being one of few Western stars that can handle the fast pace of HK-style action. Norton's Hong Kong credits include The Magic Crystal, Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars, City Hunter,(a live action remake of the comic book), Millionaire's Express, and Mr. Nice Guy. A signature catchphrase of Norton's characters is "Painful?", usually asked after striking a decisive blow. The most comical example is in Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Stars, where he faces Sammo Hung.

Over his career, Norton has faced off with many top Martial arts action stars, including Jackie Chan (in three films), Sammo Hung, Yasuaki Kurata, Benny "the Jet" Urquidez (in Kick Fighter), Don "The Dragon" Wilson (in Cyber Tracker), and Cynthia Rothrock (in Lady Dragon and others). Recently, Norton served as fight coordinator on the 2007 film The Condemned (starring "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Vinnie Jones).

Richard Norton has mastered many aspects of the Martial Arts in his 45 years of training, including Judo, Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Thai boxing and several Japanese weapons systems. He has trained extensively with such Martial Arts legends as Tino Ceberano, Tadashi Yamashita, Fumio Demura, Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace, Pete 'Sugar Foot' Cunningham, the Machado brothers and Chuck Norris.

Norton is in constant demand for seminars all over the world, covering such topics as real life street defense, martial arts weapons drills, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.

In June 2007, Norton is scheduled release a two-disc DVD set on Black Belt Digital Video called Complex Training Drills. The DVD will show Norton executing some very fast and accurate examples of his skill, and some seminar footage will also be included.
