Elvis Presley is a cultural icon, a legendary musician. However, the popular singer was also a black belt in Kenpo karate. Now longtime UFC commentating veteran Joe Rogan has come forward to offer his thoughts on a recently surfaced video of Presley giving a demonstration.
Elvis Presley was awared a first-degree black belt in Kenpo karate under none other than the founder Ed Parker himself. UFC commentator Joe Rogan, however, is no stranger to the martial arts either.
Rogan was a professional kickboxer for a short time, having earned a black belt in Taekwondo. The UFC color-commentator also earned a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu’s Eddie Bravo.
Check out what Rogan thought of Elvis Presley’s martial arts skills within the post below:
“Turns out Elvis was #legitasf*ck. I got a contact high just watching that.”
