In 1980, long before the Ninja craze, Hanshi, Frank W. Dux founded the first American system of Ninjitsu, Dux Ryu Ninjitsu.
However, not unlike Myamoto Musashi and all the other great martial arts masters that are RELEGATED TO HISTORY, Hanshi, Frank W. Dux continued to evolve to found a truly unique and original system, entitled: FASST/Dux Ryu.
While rooted in traditional Ninjitsu and the Martial Arts, FASST/Dux Ryu is A NEW SECRET TECHNOLOGY CREATED OUT OF HANSHI, FRANK W. DUX LEGENDARY RICH AND DISTINGUISHED EMPIRICAL EXPERIENCE.
An UNMATCHED experience, one that inevitably had transformed Hanshi, Frank W. Dux into becoming, without question, one of the most celebrated, recognized, respected and acclaimed leading combat strategists and tactics authorities in the world, today.
His empirical and rare knowledge of real combat, forced Hanshi, Frank W. Dux to adapt, improvise, improve and change his fighting in order to dominate in his professional no-holds-barred-fights as well as having to overcome real life lethal threats; encountered while a covert operative and as a consultant to elite military and police units, world-wide.
What Is FASST/Dux Ryu
DUX FASST is a proprietary combat proven technology utilized by US NAVY SEALs, Ukraine’s bERKYT and other elite military and law enforcement units, world-wide; as well as, traditional Martial Art and MMA world Champions. Due to the observable fact it not only transformed its creator Frank Dux into the MMA archetype as an Undefeated World Champion (16 World Records) but consistently reproduces the same result in others - it enables the novice or the best of the best to reflexively neutralize a non-compliant, combative or lethal threat, seemingly effortlessly.
DUX FASST arms you with the secret to formulating and integrating the proper:
Focus: The Mindset; concentrated effort; decisions made in advance; the ability to utilize fear and decide without distraction or hesitation on a course of action: (i.e. centered to the point of being unwavering in the face of overwhelming odds, death, etc.)
Action: Voluntary or intended behavior as opposed to forced behavior/being Proactive vs. Reactive. Those definable observable acts that demonstrate ones commitment: (i.e. physically engaging in conflict not out of panic but wisdom)
Skill: Individual characteristics gained through (Strategy & Tactics):
Strategy: Long term aims: the ability to develop, create, adapt, perceive; to devise a plan of action to achieve a goal/result
Tactics: “The toolbox” - the methodology of finding and implementing the means to achieve particular immediate short-term aims. (The science of organizing and maneuvering - in battle, to achieve a limited and immediate aim i.e. using the set maneuvers for defending oneself from a slashing knife or a front thrust kick, etc.)
Fighting skills are perishable, traditional training methods produce the predictable Conditioned Response, deceived by feints, and functions marginally in uncontrolled (real world) environments. DUX FASST is not a system. It does not replace one skill set for another. It makes possible the highest state of readiness, as FASST “bridges the gap” between the Conditioned Response and the next evolutionary skill level one must acquire to optimally deploy their arsenal - the Instinctive Reflex Action or what is better known as the PRACTICED REFLEX RESPONSE (what martial art masters refer to as “Mind No Mind”)
Regardless of your past experience, type or level of training you benefit, as DUX FASST empowers the practitioner through its proprietary trade secrets on how to Manage Anger and Fear, instinctively ACT not REACT in accordance to the USE OF FORCE CONTINUUM, the defined acceptable type and amount of force lawfully, allowed.
In addition, students acquire invaluable verbal and psychological tools in order to de-escalate a threat and prevail without physical contention.
DUX FASST is multi-dimensional/multi-fighting ranged since it also incorporates:
