  One of the greatest American kickboxers in history, Benny Urquidez fought in over 200 professional fights from 1974 to 1993. He has held six world titles in five weight divisions and even gained popularity in Japan. His nickname "The Jet" comes from his speed and his impressive spinning back kick, which was his trademark maneuver.

Retired from the sport, Urquidez now works primarily as a stunt coordinator and fight choreographer in the U.S.A. He has worked with the likes of the late Patrick Swayze, Dave Mustaine (of rock band Megadeth), David Lee Roth (of rock band Van Halen), John Cusack, and Roger Yuan.

Urquidez is also the founder of a martial arts system, Ukidokan, meaning "way of life".
