    Watching an old martial arts movie Martial Law on bluray. It has a fight with Cynthia Rothrock by Benny Urquidez so just got me thinking whether his Jet centre is still up and running ?

    The Jet Center was destroyed in the Northridge earthquake back in the mid 1990's. They had no insurance, so it was a total loss.

    This has utterly baffled me as well because Ronda mentions how amazing Gokor is and that some trainers ( Edmond) were ignoring her and not giving her the time of day. Yet she finally goes to Edmond anyways...
