Applied Combat Technology


In today's hostile world full of riots and unrest it is important to be prepared to defend our families, ourselves, and those who are easy targets. I have avoided teaching this class here in Utah for several years because I did not see the need. It is time to train



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.

Definition of Dux:  (/dʌks, dʊks/; plural: ducēs) is Latin for "leader" (from the noun dux, ducis, "leader, general" . For our purpose it is used as a "Leader of Leaders". Leaders building future leaders.  

DUX FASST™ arms you with 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 one's 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.)


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 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™ significantly heightens situational awareness by empowering you with the capability to transition to, adapt and overcome any kind of threat/fighting range, be it:
