Mind you at 5'8" I am not exactly towering but I have certainly had my ass handed to me by people I had a good 80lbs of muscle on.
Not to mention I have watched 130lb Purple belt take a part a fit 230lb blue belt(that was quite competitive at blue).

Anyone close to my size would tie my into knots, of course.
