Don't apologise, man; it's good that enough people still know of him to post about him!

 

I think you're right; I still remember the documentary they made where he came back to England and was genuinely hurt at how the sport has declined

It's a shell of its former glory,I think they call it scientific wrestling there now.

Although they do still teach CACC in obscure town halls dotted around Lancashire still.

It's just finding them and being allowed in that's the problem. Phone Post 3.0

The catch as catch can community is mourning today.

Thank you Mr. Robinson for all your knowledge.

Very sad news. He had a huge impact on grappling and MMA. <br /><br />Scientific wrestling is the US based organization that ran seminars under Billy Robinson's supervision. Snake Pit Wigan is run by Billy Riley student Roy Wood. It is not in the original location. That got demolished a long time ago. Without Karl Gotch and Robinson, there would be probably no Shooto, Pancrase or Pride. <br /><br />Posters that say "who?" are newbs.

Yeah, there's a place not far from me in Stockport

It's almost like a secret that it even exists here in the UK now; Japan is the place it's best revered I believe

Just saw this on Roli's FB page. Sad, I just now got back in the gym and had not been training since he came to AR, so I never got the chance to meet him or train with him but I have never heard anything but good. RIP

RIP

Was lucky enough to attend one of his classes when I found myself in Little Rock a few years back. Alot of enthusiasm for teaching. You could tell he wished he could get on the mat and smash :)
