TESTIMONIALS

“Benny Urquidez is one of the finest martial artists I’ve worked with. Because of our efforts, we brought out the best in each other in our memorable fight scenes in Wheels on Meals.

Jackie Chan

“Benny The Jet Urquidez is a warrior who is  a very real, compassionate, empathetic human being. He is without a  doubt the most dangerous and toughest man I know, but the kindest.”

Chuck Norris

“I first met Benny The Jet in Hong Kong in the early 80’s. He impressed me then and has continued to do so until this day. The easiest way to describe my admiration and respect would be to say, I would hope to emulate him in every way as a champion. He is a true warrior, martial artist, and teacher. He is a culmination of all the things that are good and best about Kick boxing. I treasure every moment with Benny and feel anyone who spends time with him will benefit not just in regards to their martial arts but as a human being.

I have had the privilege of studying with Sensei Benny The Jet Urquidez, he was the inspiration behind Van Halen’s hit song “Jump”.
The Urquidez contribution to the world of martial arts is inestimable. MMA fighters today should be very thankful they don’t have to deal with Benny!
David Lee Roth
“He is a man with a lot of heart, he’s very strong not just physically but also mentally.”

Benny The Jet is a grandmaster… the best of the best, it is an honor to be with him always. He is one of the most remarkable and loving people that I have ever met, an inspiration to everyone he touches. Training with Benny The Jet, I’m just in it for life.”

John Cusack

“Training With Benny The Jet for Con Air I felt that he was almost able to hypnotize me into believing I could accomplish certain martial arts moves, specifically the spinning back kick. Within a week I was doing it, it was almost like magic.”

Nicolas Cage

“Ukidokan taught me to be a husband, father, friend, and protector. I dealt with fears that had driven me to dark and scary places.  Sensei Benny  has the ability to heal, teach, counsel and advise in veritably any subject or circumstance. I grew up in the dojo where under the watchful eye of Sensei Benny Urquidez , I became a man, at last.”

“Benny The Jet Urquidez is a true warrior in Martial Arts. He is not only an exceptional martial artist but he has the biggest and kindest heart of anyone I’ve met. It is a blessing to have Benny as a friend.”

Cynthia Rothrock
“My Training for Road house was pretty rigorous, full body contact. I’ve trained in Martial Arts my whole life but I could not have done Road House and got to the level that I have without Benny and I working one on one. I patterned my Road House character Daltons eyes after Bennys eyes because he is a bad dude! I love working with him so I concentrated like a lunatic, I just focused on his eyes and he turned me into a fighter.

Benny The Jet is an incredible human being in those eyes, yet truly has power. You do not mess with this man, but he also has an incredible spirituality about how he goes about his approach to martial arts. It’s really exciting to work with him and it made me feel really good because by the time we were done with the movie he felt I could go into professional kick boxing. Benny’s become my new hero.”
