    Agreed. At 260, I'm usually one of the bigger dudes in class, and I learn a lot from the smaller opponents. I do enjoy rolling with people bigger than me however, as I have to rely on more technique than strength.

    I think it is also important to note the difference between weight and pressure (though they obviously can be related).

    We've got a 300 pound white belt in our school that I would much rather be mounted under than our 180 pound black belt instructor.

    Can't remember what my point was here...but consider yourselves educated! :)
