Hi, my name is Matt Hudd

I began my training in martial arts in 1979 when I was eight years old. My first discipline was Judo where I trained in old matted out tinned sheds; I can still smell the stench of sweat when you first entered. This was before Hereford’s Leisure Centre was even built. I studied Judo for three years but it wasn’t long after I got hooked on Bruce Lee in the TV programme The Green Hornet that I wanted to try the kicking arts.
