H. G. Robby Robinson JudoProfessor H. G. Robby Robinson, Director of Development United States Armed Forces-Southeast Asia for the USJA, Life Member (# 27) in the Armed Forces Judo Association and the United States Judo Association, Member, United States Judo Federation # 72625, Member USA Judo # 43102

H. G. Robby Robinson, a native Bronx, New Yorker was introduced to Judo in 1949 through the teachings of Charles Yerkow and was strongly influenced by neighborhood Chinese Tai Chi Chuan practitioners. A former acrobatic performer with the famous Jules Stone Dance Studios of New York and a stint in the late 1940s as a youthful member of the WOR Radio’s hit program Juvenile Jury, coupled with a high school background in weight lifting, gymnastics, fencing, wrestling, and boxing with the New York City Police Athletic League, Prof. Robinson was well prepared for a future fulfilling career in the little known field of martial arts that would take him around the world and encompassing the majority of his adult life.

Raised during the upheaval of World War II and the Korean Conflict, H. G. Robby Robinson attempts to enlist in the United States Navy Underwater Demolition Team (UDT) Program at age 17 couldn’t be guaranteed by the Navy recruiter and in 1952 he opted to go the other direction that his older brother went and enlisted in the United States Air Force (USAF) for aircrew bomber training.

While attending B-29 electronic turret systems gunnery school at Lowry AFB, Denver, Colorado, his background records were scanned by Headquarters USAF Special Project personnel officials and he soon found himself as a “volunteer” on his way to Fairchild AFB, Spokane, Washington, destined to become a member of the USAF’s Elite Strategic Air Command (SAC) Combative Armed and Unarmed Cadre of Escape and Evasion Instructors.

A quick learner from the streets of Fort Apache, the Bronx, he trained under the tutor ledge of the late Sensei Emilio “Mel” Bruno, GS-15, the Superintendent for USAF Aircrew and Air Police Combative Training and Physical Conditioning, Headquarters, SAC, Omaha, Nebraska, and a former student of Shihan Jigoro Kano; founder of the Kodokan International Judo Institute, Japan . Thus began a lifetime friendship with the person most responsible for the introduction and popularization of Kodokan Judo (and martial arts in general) in the United States Military Armed Forces and eventually on the United States National level.

As the earlier USAF military martial arts programs of the 50s and 60s gained popularity, their existing Armed Forces Judo Association (AFJA) Yudanshakai expanded bringing in other sister services such as the United States Marine Corps (USMC), United States Navy (USN) and United States Army (USA). Colleagues including USAF Major Phil Porter; West Point Military Academy Graduate, the late USAF TSGT Rick Mertens, Olympians USAF MSGT George Harris, USAF LTC Paul Maruyama; USAF Academy Graduate, Dr. Jim Bregman, Benjamin “Nighthorse” Campbell, former United States Senator from Colorado, and others, including outstanding grassroots Sensei such as the late USA Sergeant Jerry Dalien, Rokudan, Tacoma, Washington, Ted Highers, Yondan, Fort Walton Beach and former USAF SSGT Jeffrey Beish, Shichidan Placid, Florida; internationally acclaimed Planet Mars Interplanetary Scientist, to name just a few, would eventually take on several major roles as distinguished competitors, coaches and administrators becoming a strong motivating force and a highly successful part of the history of the growth of Kodokan Judo in the United States and overall martial arts movement in general.

Notably, the majority of Judo’s developmental milestones occurred prior to the intense media exposure, popularization and expansion of martial arts thanks to the successful Chinese super star Bruce Lee’s television series, the Green Hornet, the movie and sequel to “Billy Jack” and in present times, former USAF A2C Chuck Norris of “Walker, Texas Ranger” fame. Far from being last at the bottom of the pack is former U.S. National Judo Champion and former member of the U.S. Coast Grandmaster Gene Lebell. Gene and Robby remain in contact to this day.

During 1953 at Fairchild AFB, Spokane, WA, H. G. Robby Robinson trained with a team of the highest ranked Japanese martial arts masters ever to visit the United States. This prestigious grouping of Judo, Karate, Aikijutsu, Taiho Jitsu and Goshinjitsu ambassadors included Takahiko Ishikawa, Kenji Tomiki, Tadao Otaki, Hidetaka Nishiyama, Isao Obata, Toshio Kamada and Sumiyuki Kotani; up until recently, the last of the great Kodokan 10 th Degree Black Belts (Judan). This unique experience served to whet Prof. Robinson’s appetite for more knowledge and training, and thus began a serious self-study of the Japanese language, culture and customs. Prof. Robinson knew intuitively that he would eventually serve overseas and he would be as well prepared as possible.

Departing the United States in December 1955 by troop ship (USS General A. E. “Andy” Anderson) for his first Far East Asia overseas tour, upon arriving in the seaport of Yokohama Bay, Prof. Robinson was initially assigned to the USAF Chitose AFB on the island of Hokkaido and upon arrival was immediately relocated to the US Army’s former First Cavalry Garrison at Camp Crawford, Sapporo, Japan, as the overall Director of Special Services.

It was here that he began his formal Kodokan training with his Sensei and mentor Yasumasa Kanemoto, Kudan, a direct student of Jigoro Kano and a superb mat technician. In 1956, Prof. Robinson was awarded Kodokan Shodan in Judo while training alternately with Japanese Military Self-Defense Forces in Kendo and Shorinji Kenpo. Relocating to Tokyo in 1957, he studied Shotokan Karate under Hidetaka Nishiyama at Fuchu Air Station and Kodokan Judo at Minami Koen (Green Park Annex) with Kodokan’s Sensei the late Sadaki Nakabayashi, Shichidan.

A myriad of assignments throughout the United States as a Senior Judo Coach and Military Combative Tactics Instructor included providing Law Enforcement Arrest and Control training to officers of the Vice and Narcotics Division, Austin, Texas Police Department and Texas Public Safety Department. The loss of his Judo student Austin Texas Police Officer Billy Speed, one of many victims of the infamous University of Texas Tower Massacre only served to reinforce Prof. Robinson’s concerns for these guardians of the law in both the military and civilian sectors. Standing along side hundreds of mourners at Fort Sam Houston’s National Cemetery clearly served to reveal the mutual respect shared by all in attendance and moreover the seriousness of this most dangerous, deadly and oftentimes unappreciated public service occupation.

During 1964, while attending a USAF advanced senior instructors martial arts training course at the Kodokan Judo Institute, Tokyo, Japan, the Foreign Division’s Senior Sensei Sumiyuki Kotani, promoted Prof. Robinson to Nidan. Mr. Risei Kano, son of the originator of Judo, Jigoro Kano, formerly presented Robby’s promotion certificate to him in ceremony at the former Kodokan Judo Institute. Robinson, a student of Kodokan Kata under Kotani Sensei, was his teacher’s uke during the late Judo Masters’ tour of the mid west.

In 1966 after extensive training in advanced techniques, Kotani Sensei advanced Prof. Robinson to Sandan.  During this period of time Robby was a student of Senior Grandmaster Tony Lasit, Kudan, Kajukenbo, Honolulu, Hawaii. The “Best Man” at Robby’s wedding they remain close friends to this day.

Departing Bergstrom AFB, Austin, Texas in 1968 for the first of six Southeast Asia (SEA) tours of duty, Prof. H. G. Robby Robinson continued his military career as a USAF Master Sergeant. During his first Southeast Asia tour, Robby teamed up with the late Kajukenbo Master Richard Peralta, introducing Kenpo Karate, Judo and Jujitsu to U.S. military personnel and Royal Thai security forces in central Thailand. Follow on assignments included Itazuke AFB and Hakata Air Station, Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan, Hickam AFB Hawaii and two tours in Southeast Asia.

In 1971 Prof. H. G. Robby Robinson was commended by Major General Gordon Graham, Commanding General, 5th Air Force for saving two Japanese youth from drowning in Hakata Bay, Fukuoka, Japan, Professor

Robinson was also decorated by the Royal Thai Security Forces Supreme Regiment Command (Regimental Badge of Honor 2nd Class) for hands-on simulated close combat field martial arts training over 700 United States Security Police, Royal Thai Security Forces and local law enforcement police.

Assigned to U-Tapao Royal Navy Base, Thailand from 1971 – 1972, Coach Robinson started up a Judo and Self-defense programs on-base for US and Thai military personnel as well as advising local law-enforcement agencies in related martial arts activities.

After a short stateside assignment at Brooks AFB, San Antonio, Texas, from 1972 -1974, where he started up again another Judo club, Prof. Robinson again returned to SEA training Royal Thai and U.S. Security Forces in armed and unarmed self-defense as well as expanding his military roles as a USAF Civic Action Officer and Superintendent of Recreation Services. His positive contributions were again prominently recognized by Royal Thai military officials and he was decorated by the Royal Thai Air Force Security Forces with the coveted, Sergeant Major 1st Class, Supreme Regimental Badge of Honor 1st Class.

Retiring from military active duty on December 31, 1976, Prof. H. G. Robby Robinson returned home to Hawaii to complete his formal academic education. He was also an instructor with the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Department, teaching martial arts credit courses at the University of Hawaii, Manoa Campus. A close friend of the late USMC Major (Ret.) Donn Draeger, Prof. Robinson worked along side with Sensei Draeger on the development of a new academic disciple named Hoplology, and over the years has written numerous articles on physical fitness and martial arts. Completing his Associate, Bachelors and 1 and ½ Masters Degree programs, Professor Robinson was selected out of a field of 128 candidates for civilian employment with the United States Navy.

Serving from 1981 – 1984, as the United States Navy Military Services Officer, UA-12, Barbers Point Hawaii. Prof. Robinson returned to the mainland United States in 1985 relocating to Pensacola, Florida. Coordinating with the Headquarters Command Master Chief Petty Officer “Butch” Wallace, he at once set out to develop the sport of Judo for United States active duty and retired military personnel and family members stationed and /or residing in the area.

In less than one year his King Cobras Martial Arts Club located on Corry Navy Technical Training Center was the second largest member club in Florida and his students were winning every major title in and around the Emerald Coast and Northwest Florida. Many open regional tournaments were held at the Corry Gymnasium thereby providing the general public an opportunity to learn about the positive role the United States Military provides towards ensuring our nation’s security.

In view of his extraordinary success with developing martial arts programs for military youth and his background with ongoing international civic action programs, Prof. Robinson was recognized by the Gannett Foundation and the Pensacola Florida News Journal, with the auspicious “1988 Humanitarian Heart of Gold” nomination.

In December 1989, the call of the military soon came again and Prof. Robinson was recruited as a Department of the Army Civilian Recreator leaving for Munsan Ri, Republic of South Korea (ROK). During the next seven years, with the able assistance of former US Army SSGT David Parrett, Shichidan built the King Cobra Judo Club at Camp Howze, the Gladiators Club at Camp Market, the Eagles at Camp Walker, and the Warriors at Eighth United States Army Headquarters (EUSA) Yongsan Garrison in Seoul, Camp Greaves and Camp Casey. Since 1952, Professor Robinson has developed over 25 national and international martial arts clubs.

Continuing to support the Kingdom of Thailand with civic action/humanitarian assistance, Prof. Robinson was awarded the prestigious Royal Thai Air Force Master Jump Wings in 1992. In 1996 while serving as the Director of Personnel, Community Activities (DPCA), Camp Casey, Korea, he was offered a position and promotion for assignment to Monterey, California with the Department of the Army Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Institute as the Garrison Director of Community Activities (DCA), GS-13.

In 1998, Professor Robinson once again responded to the call of the military and was recruited for his first European tour of duty and assigned to Warner Kaserne (Barracks), Bamberg, Germany as the Base Support Battalion Community Recreation Officer. Soon after arriving he embarked on the planning and construction project of a new state-of-the art $16.6 million dollar fitness center designed to support a multitude of fitness, sports and martial arts training for the United States military community. Coordinating the transfer of US Army retiree Sensei David Parrett from his Department of the Army civilian assignment in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Judo and Ju-Jitsu program was added to Bamberg’s already impressive recreation and sports program at Warner Barracks. Sensei Parrett has had similar success with a subsequent assignment to Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico and most recently as a Department of the Army (DA) civil service retiree instructing martial arts in the Fort Lauderdale, Florida area.

In November 1999 Prof. Robinson was promoted and reassigned to the Headquarters, 98 th Area Support Group, Faulenburg Kaserne, Wuerzburg, Germany, home of the famous First Infantry Division; the Big Red One. As the Headquarters Senior Community Recreation and Business Operations Officer, Professor Robinson oversaw the overall United States military community morale, welfare, recreation, physical fitness and business needs of four Base Support Battalions.

Using his new European overseas assignment as a jumping off point, Prof. Robinson and his wife Renee, Sandan in Kodokan Judo, and Ju-Jitsu, embarked on a new series of volunteer civic action/humanitarian projects aimed at improving the health and welfare of Thai children and those in need far removed from the major urban cities. In 1999, they began to finance an annual free lunch program for children in a elementary school in the North of Bangkok, played a major role in raising funds for the construction of a medical research library and health center in a remote Northern province, and provided education scholarships for Thai military dependent youth at several Royal Thai Air Force Bases.

In view of Mrs. Robinson’s outstanding record of volunteer assistance to the DA (in excess of 25,000 hours) and international civic action support from 1990 – 2002, Renee was selected as the “2002 United States Army Europe Outstanding Morale, Welfare and Recreation Volunteer of the Year.”

As such, the elder sister of the King of Thailand, Princess Galayani wrote a personnel letter to Professor and Mrs. Robinson praising them for their outstanding humanitarian assistance since 1968 to the present time. High praise was also extended by a Letter of Commendation by Air Chief Marshall Chaloey Warintrakom, Commanding General, Royal Thai Security Forces addressed to General Montgomery Meigs, Commanding General, US Forces in Europe and 7th Army, for the Robinson’s magnificent and unprecedented humanitarian support and their roles as American Ambassadors of Goodwill. This letter was relayed to the Commanding General, 1st Infantry Division and presented in a formal ceremony to Prof. and Mrs. Robinson in March 2003.

On June 14, 2003, blessed after 13 years of marriage, the Robinson family celebrated the birth of their daughter Jasmine “Sangwan” Robinson (named after the King of Thailand’s Mother). With the birth of his daughter, Prof. Robinson opted to retire early and on October 2, 2003, the Robinson family departed Germany returning to the Kingdom of Thailand.

Professor Robinson had committed to continue coordinating civic actions projects as the Southeast Asia (SEA) Executive Director for Civil Welfare Projects, USAF Air Command Association/Special Operations – McCoskrie/Threshold Foundation. Giving full-time attention to raising his daughter, for the first three (3) years, Prof. Robinson has plans to re-enter U.S. Government Service in the year 2007.

Appointed by USAF BGen Heine Aderholt, former Commanding General, Joint United States Military Advisory Group, Thailand (JUSMAGTHAI) and famed Commander, USAF Air Commando Group, Thailand, Prof. Robinson serves as the volunteer Southeast Asia Liaison for a world-wide organization of former and active duty military members of the Air Command Association (ACA)/Special Operations Command, whose record of World Medical Relief has surpassed $300,000,000 in aid throughout many countries including South America. More currently, Prof Robinson is a candidate for the auspicious 2007 Special Operations – Air Commando Association Hall of Fame.

In January 2005, after taking into consideration the present circumstances following the devastating Andaman Sea Tsunami of December 26, 2004, and the ongoing escalation of terrorism in the Southern Providences of the Kingdom of Thailand, as well as the need to set down permanent and safe roots, the Robinsons returned to Pensacola to reestablish their residency. Although they will spend the majority of their time in the USA, they will share time between Florida and Thailand, on occasion, continuing their roles as volunteers with the ACA and the Royal Thai Air Force.

With his former Pensacola Judo Club under the capable leadership of former USN Petty Officer and Vietnam combat veteran Sensei Larry Baldwin, Rokudan, Prof. H. G. Robby Robinson has combined the International Southeast Asia Armed Services Warriors Club with the Pensacola King Cobra Judo Club; now relocated to the Youth Center on the Naval Air Station, Pensacola, home of the Navy Blue Angels (Sherman Field). In view of expanding the overall training curriculum to include other elements of martial arts, including military tactics, and the addition of volunteer teaching staff, the club has been renamed as, “ The Armed Services Judo & Ju Jitsu Academy – Warriors”

With a distinguished active duty and reserve military career spanning some 35 years, with numerous military decorations, both foreign and domestic, and passionately dedicated to the Kanonian principle of Jita Kyoei; Mutual Aid and Reciprocity, Professor H. G. Robby Robinson will continue to concentrate and dedicate his time and energy towards improving the Quality of Life for military personnel and their families through the positive elements of martial arts training.
