I couldn't go in to work today because of icy roads & was starting to get a little stir crazy in my house, then Bloodsport came on TV; so I poured myself a drink & read this thread while I watched the movie.
It's amazing that one man could fail to acomplish so many different things in a single lifetime.
He's still at it. He's been published (Part 2) in the UK Mag, Martial Arts Illustrated - Edition Jan 09. Claims include playing both sides during the Cold War in his expose "The Secret Man". Etc.

He's got some Neck...

Holy smokes, this is one helluva article. I knew Bloodsport was a Hollywood lie, but I didn't know all those details about Frank Dux.
I know, it's pathetic, isn't it? He even goes on to say "I'm very selective about who I can teach, because I can still pull your eyeball out of it's socket and choke you with it, before you can even blink!" :sad3:

I expected better of an editor of a long-established magazine...
Um, I'm looking at the article, and I don't see it. Where is that written?

My old instructor Chad Minge was apparently instrumental in outing Dux in LA with the TIMES and was the first person to warn me about him. When I was training with Genbukan in Federal Way, WA we used to get semi regular threats from 'Zura', Franks little lap dog instructor. This clown used to wear a duster with shuriken velcroed to it. He would make these phone calls accusing us of defaming his master (Dux) and challenging us. We would laugh and say, "Here's the address, c'mon over" but neither he nor his stucdents would show. Ac ouple of our guys went to his school and tried to get him or his students to 'compare' but were threatened with trespassing (lol).
The NW has its share of MA pathological liars...we have Bennest and Dux among others but teh pathology is eerily similar. Ninja training from unfounded untraceable masters....military specwar backgrounds (bogus), counter terrorism experts....theses yo yos must have a club house where they get together and compare.
To those of us that have done the time both in the arts and the military the Dux and Bennests of this world infuriate me.
Ive got my DD214 that shows where I fought and Ive got my CIB. Dux never made it out of the San Diego Motor Pool and Bennest is an ass clown and a disgrace to law enforcement.
So tired of tehse folks.
Dux defending himself> Some proof? You decide
This is the first i have heard from valid sources that Dux is the real deal. Dog Tom (former student) :deadhorse
Frank claimed he he contributed to a Special Warfare manual for SEALs. I have tried to find it and see what he contributed to. To date I have not found the manual and when I ask the question about Dux and the manual I get crazy looks at the JFK Special Warfare College here at Fort Bragg.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
It's in the letters page of this month's issue, a few pages before Part 2 of the interview. I expected better of Bob Sykes, to be honest. Yet while he says Dux is the real deal just because of the movie, he does nothing to address the wild claims is makes in the Epilogue about Dux's multiple "World records".

Now, consider this - the "World records" are given in the world's only universal language - Mathematics! Therefore, the purported language barriers are no obstacle to stating (or even simply writing down) a few integer numbers.
He also claims the video evidence was stolen when the journalist made off with his and Dux's tape recorders in mid-interview. So, to buy this, you have to believe that a man with little or no MA training was able to outrun the great Frank Dux , while carrying these 2 huge objects (think 1980's tape recorders and you'll get the picture!!!).
His brass neck seems to get thicker and thicker with every passing year...
Goof news everyone, I just read in a Yahoo article today that Chuck Norris ate Frank Dux with fava beans and a nice chianti. REJOICE!
