    (July 22, 1937-November 7, 1999)
    Birth name is Yasuhiro Kojima
    Wrestled for the NWA
    Former NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion and holder of several regional NWA singles and tag titles
    He wrestled barefoot.
    He was obsessed with physical conditioning and would make his students do 1,000 push-ups and sit-ups before even entering the ring.
    Due to the time period in which he wrestled, fans of the 80's, 90's and today have no idea who is.
    Fans have no idea that many of the wrestlers they watched like Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Ron Simmons, Scott Hall, Paul Orndorff and many more learned everything they knew from Matsuda.
    He snapped Hulk Hogan's leg the first day Hogan came to be trained by him.
    He's well-respected as a trainer as much as he is a wrestler.
    He was one of the first to combine established wrestling moves with karate, a style that would be copied for years.
    His feud with Danny Hodge is widely regarded as the greatest pure wrestling feud of the modern era.
    He trained Hulk Hogan.
    When Hulk Hogan came back from his broken leg injury, Matsuda trained him and made him a big star.
