    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I have a problem, I am a white belt in BJJ, I am 15, 5'8 and 121 lbs, All the other members of the school are full grown men, the shortest and lightest member of the school(there are only like 6 of us) and I can't tap anybody. I'm really good at defending submission but I can't tap anybody, I get tapped about once a class. What should I do?
    If you only get tapped once/class, you must be doing alright.

    Anyhow, I wouldn't worry about it. You're 15 and 120 lbs for chrissake. Y'all deserve respect for just being out there.

    Man-strength is different than kid-strength. This is both a physical *and* mental thing. FWIW, this is why the concept of a 12 y/o sandan is just laughable.

    Anyhow, echoing what others say, stick with it. By the time you're 19-20ish and you get some gains from maturity, you'll be well-served.

    NOTE: since it's not clear you've had your growth spurt yet, I'd recommend taking especial care of your joints. A severe injury near a growth plate could have the unintended consequence of calcifying the end of the bone. When this happens, the growth of that bone is complete. I'm not sure, but I've always suspected this is part of the reason judo's kids competition doesn't allow arm bars.

    Boyd with all do respect I was pointing out that Helio is not a big fan of muscle developement over technique. I'm not saying he shouldn't do it but Gracie Jujitsu loves to sport that it is best for the smaller person. Read Helios interview in grappling magazine to see what I mean.

    Go away I'm talking to myself

    Look at it this way.

    Its much harder to fight from defensive position when your smaller, than offensive when your bigger.

    You'll contine to grow, but have the knowledge of how to defend against much larger opponents.
