What combat art is taught in the CIA?

Some cases, they want to prefer the used of close-range combat especially at unexpected inclosed spaces as long as needed. They prefer to use either Krav Maga or Judo as hand-to-hand combat arsenal. And some cases they have specialty training variety especially to use Wing Chun strikes in some organizations, If in case the matter in long-range, they don't need hand-to-hand method of combat but they often uses guns especially pistol or sidearms as their own convenient.

The CIA uses a lot of Krav Maga and Judo, but prior to Krav Maga establishing its reputation, it relied almost exclusively on Judo, and it used "dirty boxing." It also uses some Karate moves, but not many; in one infamous case, I think it was a Russian spy or some family man who discovered something during the cold war, that a CIA agent killed him with a karate chop to the throat. If the hands are conditioned enough to break boards, a direct chop the throat can indeed be fatal.

Again though, the main stay martial art of the CIA is Judo; virtually all CIA employees, even people who don't do "spy stuff," hold a black belt in it.

Jon Portos: Not wanting to criticize the above (but I am not happy with it as I actually teach advanced stealth arts): The modern Agencies use a combination of various arts as the needs of the missions of agents can be diverse and complex. No one art does all. Selected experts in different arts are engaged to teach their specialties to trainees. The Company, like other agencies in the world, also requires skills in specialist areas not found in the normal martial arts schools. For instance training on the use of household items as weapons, some Self Defense systems teach that.

The main weapon in such occupations though is not manipulations of one's body, but an exercising of the mind. The mind keeps you from getting into trouble, as physical skills, no matter how highly developed may be inadequate in getting you out of trouble. Also fighting is a last resort, the CIA is not Special Forces as in combat teams, although they do have similar specialists. You are not sent somewhere to fight, but to blend in and never be known. Stealth, not fighting, is the main priority of training. I might comment that hand conditioning is not recommended and is not needed in killing. You don't need to break boards. If you have to break boards then you use an axe like anyone else. You can easily kill someone without requiring hand conditioning. Also the calluses of hand conditioning cannot be hidden and therefore would be a dead give-away as to such training. And Dead here means your agent is thus discovered and dead. An expensive loss.

Did Frank Dux work for the CIA?

No... according to Dux book the Secret Man, HarperCollins 1996, Frank Dux was a contract agent (ala Black Water personnel) whose identity was concealed from CIA for purposes of security and in order not to violate Neutrality Acts, part of Operation Sub-groups run under the NSC and direction of DCI William Casey.

"Congressional expert witness, Iran-Contra insider, US Navy Lt. Cmdr. Alexander Martin stated in court proceedings under penalty of perjury, "During my intelligence career, I have met with and been introduced to many covert operatives, whose existence has often been officially denied by the government agencies that these parties have been associated with. One of these covert operatives was one Frank Dux." Lt. Cmdr. Martin's declaration was entered into evidence as Exhibit #25 in Dux's suit of libel and slander against Soldier of Fortune magazine.

Frank has additional military related experience as noted by Kathy Kolt in her 2008 Artesia Daily article, "In 1996, he (Frank Dux) was with HIDTA, High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area at the Criminal Justice Center. He designed strategies and tactics and evaluated their existing training program. In 1997, he received awards from the Multi Jurisdictional Counter Drug Task Force for drug task investigations. He also was sponsored by the Department of Defense to teach NEOA, Narcotics Enforcement Officers Association, covert activities. He is an adjunct faculty member of the Saint Petersburg, Florida Criminal Justice Institute. He was knighted in the Order of Saint Michael, Knight Chevalier, by the Police Hall of Fame, Miami, Florida. He was a source contributor to the US Navy Seal SpecWar Manual."

What is best way to become a black ops agent for the CIA?

What you're referring to is what the CIA officially calls its Specialized Skills Operations Officers. The general requirement for any CIA Officer is to have at least a 4-year college degree (BA/BS) with a minimum 3.0GPA. Excellent written and communication skills are also essential. Foreign language fluency and extensive overseas travel and cultural knowledge are also very useful skills. To be a Specialized Skills Operations Officer - the guys that are sent in to perform the CIA's covert paramilitary intelligence operations ("black ops" if you will) - you will most certainly need to have extensive military special operations experience with a history of foreign combat operations deployments. The average CIA "black ops" officer has years of experience in Army Special Forces, Army Delta Force, Navy SEALs, Marine Force Recon, etc on top of the 4-year college degree. Also note that any employee for the CIA, especially overseas officers, must have clean backgrounds. All employees go through a very extensive background investigation prior to be hired. Any arrests, drug use, alcohol abuse, or a long history of being untrustworthy and gossipy amongst friends, classmates, and coworkers are all reasons for being disqualified.

So if you want to know the best way to become a black ops officer for the CIA - stay out of trouble, away from drugs, be loyal and trustworthy to people you know, do VERY well in school, be responsible and reliable in any job you ever have, and of course, serve at least a few years in a U.S. military special operations unit. This last part is obviously much easier said than done.
