Hugh Robinson - 1956
Why I Wanted to Interview Hugh
For years I had heard Hugh's name pop up in various sporting and social circles. People would talk about how Hugh gave them amazing training training advice, or how Hugh had taught them a devastating martial arts technique. They also talked about Hugh's legendary status as a martial artist and technical fighter. After hearing all of this it was great to finally meet the man, put a face to the name and get down to discussing Hugh's thoughts on exercise, sport, motivation and life.
