I was friends with Vince Gironda’s son Guy through high school and college and I was fortunate enough to learn about Vince from his son.
Very very strict. Several times I watched his son guy training a man but, not listening very well, executing badly, not concentrating he’d offer this client his money back and suggest he go to a public gym.
Knowledge was what he gave out. Vince really wasn’t cut out for teaching men or women who were not super serious and / or competitive.
Totally, unique individual. I believe he had a degree in physical therapy with human anatomy dissection in their curriculum.
Hence the deeper understanding as a foundation to develop the genius.
Miss Vince, boy could he tell a joke too, what voice as well.
