In the 1980s and 1990s, the charismatic and photogenic "Muscles from Brussels" became an international movie star - and then, just as fast and unlikely as his rise, came the fall. Here's how the man born Jean-Claude Camille François Van Varenberg has occupied himself in recent years...

Dux is one of the most well known con artist in all of martial arts. Anything that man claims is a big lie. Calling other martial artist fakes is projection at it''s finest

So Van can't fight?! I always saw his hand skills some what "equal to his style of fight". In fact equally standing as someone who trained in pure karate maybe in different styles but pure karate. so his punching is like his kicking not so much limited but rooted heavily in Karate. He did Frank Dux a favor in portraying him in the film as a professional underground "kumite" fighter. but is Dux's claim as legitamite as he says he is? I wonder did he fight every time and throw a 75mph kick or close to? Was it executed with the precision that is actually effective or is it some all over the place Hail Mary (hopes it land) Full of Grace kick? recalling kickboxing in the 80's and some 90's the Hawain who played older bro. Alex in Kickboxer. In real life a real kickboxer who fought 15round fights like the old boxing dayz and wayz, could he give legitamcy too, setting aside any sort of foul play, BS passed hustle pulled out of his own personal life used against him. Could he or other kickboxers at that time actually give us the low down or simple clarification ( i think so). Van in his appearences in most recent got no problem standing toe to toe in a sparring or not session with anyone from his earliest Chuck Zito to MMA & M.J. WHITE he might loose the fight but I think he'll stand and throwdown limited or not handskills he is seemingly quite effective. How many guys you know from Prison to Ranger and Navy Seals can actually throw proper punches and keep proper stances in real fights? whether they fight like Hagler or Hearns, Duran to Roy Jones oR Toney "Whose the Boss" Danza they have limitations couldn't Dux. can his skills be shown not to stand up to the real test of endurance, and resistance that the mentioned pro fightera had or have? Unisol: Regeneration is probably his greatest portrayel of how he could fight without the running of course and most likely loose or pull a hard win.

He’s just gone up in my esteem! Helping Greyhounds that’s really good. Any help to any animals. Being a small rescue and helping support other animal charities myself.

Nope, it's a known FACT that BLOODSPORT was his most successful film....EVER! I mean, come on....the damn movie made like $65 million on a $2 million budget. That's like over 32 times the budget. Kickboxer is second best and then maybe Universal Soldier and Timecop.

Can you imagine the Predator with kickboxing skills? I can't. It was fortunate that Van Damme turned it down. Would've made it less believable imo.

Who cares if he was a good fighter or not. Matters he was a good actor, handsome, nice body, and had sense of humor. And im straight. I just always liked Van Damme Movies. And also he is an open minded awaken conscious aware guy that at least once exposed the elite and the cabal.
