INTRODUCTION:

Frank Dux was portrayed in the movie "Blood Sport" by actor Jean-Claude Van Damme.   Dux made history by becoming the first American to win the dangerous Kumite Competition.

SECRET AGENT:

At age 13, Frank Dux (pictured above) competed in a martial arts tournament; he finished in last place.  An Asian gentleman named Tanaka-suma took him under his wing.  He taught him a higher level of martial arts, discipline and spirituality.  Dux would eventually surpass Tanaka-suma by obtaining a tenth-degree black belt.  He also became the first person to break bulletproof glass with his bare hand.  Dux would also master the ‘death touch.’   This technique enables you to hit the human body and cause death without leaving a bruise.

Dux could also snatch a coin out of an open palm and replace it with a penny without the switch being noticed.   His reflexes were extremely quick.  At 6'2 and 225 lbs, Dux was considered the most dangerous man in the world.  Former CIA director William Casey personally recruited him.  Dux traveled the world on secret assignments.   He operated in the most dangerous areas of intelligence and always got the job done.  The CIA utilized his skills as he worked both sides of the Iron Curtain and he established contacts all over the world.

When Dux gave a martial arts expedition in Paris, over 40,000 people packed Bercy stadium.  In 1994, Dux was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  Doctors attributed his diagnosis to repeated head blows.  He was also diagnosed with spinal meningitis.   Weeks later, a second brain tumor was found.  It would be a long and slow recovery for Dux.

In his spare time, he penned the sequel to "Bloodsport." Van Damme was going to portray him once again.  They had an oral agreement where Dux would receive $50,000 for the rights and screen credit for the story and Van Damme allegedly promised Dux 2.5 percent of the gross.  Dux claims that Van Damme reneged on the agreement and the script was rewritten and renamed "The Quest," which was released, Dux got nothing.  In 1998, Dux sued Van Damme for breach of oral contract.   The trial was shown on Court TV.  In the end, Dux lost the suit.  

Dux currently conducts private training's and drills; he’s also a consultant for police agencies and the military.
