Benny "The Jet" Urquidez: Exclusive Video Interview With the Kickboxing and Full-Contact Karate Legend

Benny "The Jet" Urquidez will be featured on the upcoming April/May 2014 issue of Black Belt magazine! To get you primed for his appearance, Urquidez talks on camera about his busy life as a martial arts instructor.

With a stellar record in kickboxing and full-contact karate, Benny "The Jet" Urquidez has a reputation for effectiveness with his kicks, punches, elbows and knees, which makes it that much easier to believe him when he talks about the multiple-opponent situations in which he was involved. And as the founder of ukidokan karate — a comprehensive martial art with marked self-defense leanings — Benny Urquidez knows a thing or two about mixing it up outside the ring. At a recent Black Belt shoot, it didn't take much persuading to get Benny Urquidez, 61 — and as much in possession of the eye of the tiger as ever — to open up about his storied past. It was one of those rare times when we believed every word we heard. In the April/May 2014 issue of Black Belt magazine — on sale in late March/early April 2014 — you can read our exclusive cover story with Benny Urquidez and see what he had to say about a variety of topics, including his experiences with ...


  • bar fights
  • parking-lot brawls
