Yasuhiro Kojima (July 22, 1937 – November 27, 1999) was the trainer of Hulk Hogan, "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff, Lex Luger, Ron Simmons, Keiji Mutoh and many other professional wrestlers. He was better known as Hiro Matsuda, an identity he adopted while competing in the southern U. S., inspired by earlier wrestlers Sorakichi Matsuda and Matty Matsuda. As a trainer, Matsuda was famous for being very stiff with his trainees to toughen them up and teach them to respect the business.
