PHILADELPHIA MEGA MARTIAL ARTS EXPO
The goal of PHMAS is to foster a larger Martial Arts community that supports, shares, and learns from one another. Not only will we continue to celebrate the accomplishments of our fellow martial artists at the Hall of Fame | Hall of Honor Banquet, we want to offer other attractions such as seminars and demonstrations, that will promote an exchange of techniques and ideas.
We look forward to our annual banquet every year to re-convene, catch up with old friends, and celebrate all who contribute to our Martial Arts community. Join us for our second annual Philadelphia Mega Martial Arts Expo!
We want to thank all who attended our first Expo, which occurred in 2019. This was our first attempt at making this occasion a bigger event and we really appreciate the turnout. Moving forward, we are always looking for areas to improve, to make a better experience for everyone.

Benny "The Jet" Urquidez
Benny Urquidez, is an American kickboxer, martial arts choreographer and actor. Urquidez was a non-contact karate competitor who later pioneered full-contact fighting in the United States. Benny began competing in 1958, at the age of five, in "peewee" boxing and wrestling in Los Angeles. His martial arts instruction started when he was seven years old; his first formal teacher was Bill Ryusaki. Urquidez received his black belt at the age of 14, a highly unusual feat in the 1960s.
He made the transition from point to full-contact karate in 1974 – the year of its inception in the U.S., frequently fighting in bouts where the rules were ambiguous and contrasts in styles were dramatic. Urquidez is also known for once holding the rare achievement of six world titles in five different weight divisions and remained largely undefeated in his 27-year career. Between 1974 and 1993, he amassed a documented professional record of 49–1–1 (win-loss-draw) with 35 knockouts and two controversial no-contests, although he is also supposed to have an additional record of 10–0–1 (10 KOs) in undocumented professional fights, making a total of 59–1–2–2 (45 KOs). Black Belt magazine voted Urquidez "Competitor of the Year" in 1978.
