I believe jcvd was portraying Frank Dux in the american classic "bloodsport" Any hoot his style was Dux's martial art style "Dux Ryu Ninjitsu" is not a “koryu” 15th century feudal form of Ninjitsu, but is still claimed to be "based on its Koga Ninja root principles of adaptability and consistent change."Frank Dux formulated the proprietary augmentation technology he calls DuX FASST (Focus-Action-Skill-Strategy-Tactics)..As for jcvd himself,im not sure of his particular style.

Van Damme, who is nowadays 48 years old became in 1979 European Champion Karate. Nine years later the action movie 'Bloodsport' gave him his breakthrough in Hollywood.
The exact date isn't yet set, but Van Damme says on facebook that the event will take place around Mai, June or July 2010. For Van Damme is it ten years ago that he fought a competition.
Wow, he's screwed.
I hope there'll be some way to watch this happen.
What an . . . interesting choice of opponents. I'm no kickboxing expert, but won't that guy hurt Van Damme badly?
