1) I'm not that big by the standards of the business I'm in.
2) The bodyweight and other conditioning I do has been an integral part of my Karate training ever since I first took it up, as much as the full-contact sparring and crosstraining.
EDIT: Seriously, why do so many small guys have be such whiners?

Yimchaloi, take notice here. This poor chunner was a decent specimen. Young, reasonably athletic, & with plenty of height & reach. And there was no grappling to take his style out of it's intended element. His style set him up for this.

There's one main reason aikidoka don't compete in MMA very often, and it's a simple one...
We are above it.
Don't know about the chunners though.
I expect it's related to angles. Octagons have so very many of them.
When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
