Next up in Fighters Corner is Robbie McMenamy, one of the best fighters to come out of the Emarald Isles. There really isn’t anything Robbie has not won – check his unique style out on YouTube.

We caught up with him to ask a few questions.

 

KPB: How long have you been training and what made you start?

RM: I’ve been training for 24 years since I was an 11 year old fat kid. I started because l liked the game street fighter and wanted to be Ryu. After that Jackie Chan movies spiked my imagination also!

KPB: There’s not much you haven’t won. What motivates you these days?

RM: Nothing motivates me more like good competition from another good martial artist which unfortunately seems to be hard to find these days.

KPB: Who are your favourite, most entertaining fighters to watch these days male and female?

RM: Male: Davide Colla and female: Martina Rossi.

KPB: The sport changes so often, as a fighter what core systems do you think are key to success?

RM: I think the core values have disappeared if I’m honest and it’s had a massive effect on the sport.

KPB: Favourite tournament?

RM: It used to be Best Fighter back in the day. Now it would be World Combat Games as it is the best in the world and only a few can confirm this.

KPB: If you had the chance to create a dream team with fighters from any era who would be in it?

RM: I would choose Nikos Memmos, Morten Spissøy Drew Neal, Gregorio Di Leo and Emanuele Bozzolani. Women I would have Luisa Lico and your Natasha.

KPB: Lastly will we see you teaching again in Scotland?

RM: If that’s an invitation then yes, I’d love to come back!
