THE FRANK DUX FELLOWSHIP AWARD
The concept of fellowship awards preserves the legends and legacy, the roots of martial arts. Each is made in the name of a martial art icon signifying others making similar contributions to the field. Each fellowship award provides the general public a sense of confidence and awareness that they are really in THE COMPANY OF TRUE LEADERS IN THE INDUSTRY! WHERE THE HONOR AND CERTIFACTION OF SKILL & KNOWLEDFGE IS DETERMINED BY AN OBJECTIVE EVALUATION OF ONES OWN PEERS AND THE HEIRS TO THOSE LEGACIES. THAT THEY ARE NOT BEING MISLED BY THE INVENTIONS OF MEDIA HYPE OR UNVERIFIED CERTIFICATE SWAPPING!
WHAT IS THE FRANK DUX FELLOWSHIP AWARD?
One of the most elite and prestigious awards. Frank Dux Fellowship Award is delivered once a year in a very exclusive ceremony for a very reduced number of Leaders, Mentors, and Exceptional Humans who contribute to human development through any area of human development (philantrophic, social, sports, martial, medical, etc).
WHO GRANTS THE FDF AWARD?
The Frank Dux Fellowship Award is granted by the “Circle of Iron”, under the support of the World Organization For Peace, the International Fighting Arts Association, the Dux Ryu NTSA and the World Mixed Martials Arts Council.
HOW IS THE SELECTION PROCESS?
To select Frank Dux Fellowship Awards’ nominees an open convocatory is launched. You cannot nominate yourself nor can anyone outside the Fellowship nominate you.
Those nominated are examinated over the course of years and voted upon by the alumni and secret committee of the very best people in their respective fields.
The Commitee formulates its decision based upon the merits of each nominee’s character -- being an inspiration to others, performing charitable acts, possessing courage, skill, professional knowledge and good moral character. Unlike other award events there is no charge for the award.
The Frank Dux Fellowship is a non profit organization. It sustains itself by the donations made by its members and different sponsors. Banquets for the FDF Awards Ceremony get paid by the attending public, who has an outstanding oportunity to meet true legends of different fields.
