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

Kickboxing champion Benny Urquidez photographed for Black Belt magazine. 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
  • rowdy fans at sporting events
  • incompetent bouncers
  • … and much more!

Until then, here we catch up with Benny Urquidez in this exclusive video interview where the kickboxing and full-contact karate legend gets us caught up on what he’s been up to and the many roles he plays in his work as a martial arts instructor!

    He reminds me of my father, and uncles, who have been around the block a few times. Growing up in the Bronx ,NY. Back in the day when you fought with your hands and not like today with guns and knives. Sensei is the truth!.

    Sincerely,
    Steve Hamilton, Martial Arts Practioner
