So yes, they are faster and more agile now because they lost the weight and are back to a size thier bodies weren't meant to operat at. True it takes more energy for bigger people to move around. But we also have the frame and muscle to do so. Saying there is a set height/weight at wich one becomes slow is just plain stupid.
    You must not understand how basic physics works then. The difference isn't that huge so it's easy to miss, training can more than make up for it, but beyond the butterfly/jumbo jet, just look at larger animals in general and how agile they are.

    Smaller people are more naturally maneuverable. They have a distinct advantage in size:weight ratio. This is why grasshoppers jump huge, and elephants can't jump.

    Training and skill can bridge gaps, but given equal amounts of training and skill, the small guys will be more agile and while not faster in a linear sense of the world, be faster relative to their own body lengths and with rotational forces.

    You'd rather be the grasshopper than the elephant?? did you call a jumbojet an animal??
    what kind of weed are you smoking?? can I share?:thebirdma

    Weight classes don't exist to keep the big guys safe. You appear to have a rectal/cranial inversion going on here:badgrin:

    Being that I am an engineer by trade and education. I am pretty sure I have a firm handle on the concept of physics there professor. I, for one, know plenty of clumsy ass slow "smaller" people.

    I'm clumsy, hence the nickname...but fast too...tyciol...your posts have a suck about them that has me brain numb. Like brain freeze from ice cream, exept with Fyz7cs LeZzon8 BULSzits.
    Do you train directly under Ashida Kim, or just suck on his teet at the end of a long day, roaming the str33tz starting fights with obese old people to prove your point? Ha granny, that'll teach you to doubt my speed. Cracked your tibia for you biatch....little people rule! now where's my sweet Bradford nipple?
