Dux was born on April 6, 1956 in Toronto, Canada. His family relocated to California when he was seven, and he later attended Grant High School. Dux states that he was introduced to and trained in ninjutsu by Senzo “Tiger” Tanaka, whom he described as a “world-famous” teacher and the descendant of 40 generations of warriors. Dux says that Tanaka brought him to Masuda, Japan when he was 16 to train him as a ninja.
John Stewart, the author of the 1980 Black Belt article that first described Dux’s alleged Kumite victory, expressed regret for writing the article in 1988, describing himself as “naive” for believing Dux and saying after the story was published he received information that “raised questions about Dux’s military career”. In 1988 Jim Coleman, then editor of Black Belt, said that Dux’s story was “based on false premises”, adding they could find no evidence of such a competition; he made a similar statement again in 1996. Kenneth Wilson from the Ministry of Sports in The Bahamas disputed the existence of the Kumite, saying it was impossible a martial arts tournament of that scale could have been kept a secret. According to John Johnson, an invoice for the organization that allegedly staged the Kumite listed Dux as its only point of contact, and the base of the trophy he claims to have won was bought by him at a local trophy store. Dux told Johnson to speak to a man named Richard Robinson, whom he said he had met at the Kumite. Robinson initially confirmed Dux’s story, saying he was invited to the Kumite as he was an undefeated wrestler at Lower Merion High School. Johnson later uncovered that Robinson had not attended that school, and had actually gone to school with Dux. Confronted with this information, Robinson responded “All right. I don’t know what to say … Frank was a buddy of mine when I was in L.A.”

Contrary to his claims, Dux’s military records obtained through Freedom of information show he never served overseas, he has not been given the Medal of Honor or any other award, and that in January 1978 he was referred for psychiatric evaluation after he expressed “flighty and disconnected ideas”. Dux states that the military sabotaged his service record to discredit him. A photograph of Dux in military uniform shows service ribbons being displayed in an incorrect order, and the Medal of Honor he is wearing is the version given to members of the United States Army, rather than the Marine Corps. Questioned about the photograph in 1988, Dux told John Johnson from the Los Angeles Times he was not able to get the military to explain why he was awarded a medal from the wrong service, though in later years he changed his story to say the uniform was just a Halloween costume.
In 1980, Dux told Black Belt his fight record so far was 321 wins, 1 loss and 7 draws, though in 2014 he told AXS TV he had retired with a fight record of 329 wins, 0 losses. Curtis Wong, an editor of Inside Kung Fu, doubted whether Dux’s alleged 56 consecutive knockout record was possible. Others observe the difficulty in proving or disproving Dux’s “impossibly impressive” records, as “the only person able to verify any of this information is Dux himself”.
