    I know what it feels like. I weigh 150 lbs and am 6' 2" tall. Everyone I roll with is like at least 20-30 lbs heavier than me. I think it could be an advantage to me later though. Will force me to be that much more technical than the average Joe is when he first begins.

    Or maybe im horrible wrong.

    I would have thought you'd have the advantage weighing 1.4 tons. what are you wrestling orca whales and cement trucks?

    No, you're right. Being smaller forces cleaner technique. I start only from my back now and I don't cross face anymore, because I got used to bullying and my form suffered.

    5'8 175. I suck balls at triangles. My short inseam doesn't help me at all.

    I've gotten a really tight arm bar sunken in on two guys considerably bigger. One is aroudn 225 and one is about 250. Both of them just stood up and picked me up. :rofl:

    i'm 280 and had a 160 pounder throw a triangle on me a few weeks ago, he's 6'0" (skinny dude obviously) though and mostly legs so he could reach around my beefyness lol

    I can't even close guard on a lot of people, much less sink a triangle.

    5'3", 28" inseam.

    Ever get sidemount and manuver for a crucifix only to be benchpressed off your opponent?

    THAT is humiliating.

    The coolest thing I saw the other week was my friend who weighs like 125lbs choking out a 250lb Judo Black Belt with a collar choke. It was a war, the Judo guy even did that Ricco/Marcelo back slam thing when my friend had his back and my friend got pissed off and he proceeded to choke his ass out!

    i steamrolled a 170 pound guy the other day. take note, when you attempt to takedown someone who out weighs you by 100 pounds, make sure he doesn't land on you. you might crack a rib.
