    A lot of Judo techniques require you to lower your center of gravity below your opponent's.

    Being tall makes this obviously more difficult to pull off.

    But by no means impossible.

    Generally taller judoka specialise in sweeping and tripping techniques rather than trying to fold their lanky bodies underneath you for hip or shoulder throws.

    absolutely true. In Ju Jutsu (TMA), I didn't like Judo technique, because I am tall too...

    Judo is better for small guys.

    And extremely dangerous too, if the guy excel at judo.

    I know your pain, I'm a tall AND skinny bastard, I train in jujutsu and we do judo-style randori in class all the time. Hip throws do not come easy to me. But hiza gurumas, tane otoshis as a counter to o goshis, morote garis, and gaurd-drops I can do with relative effectiveness.

    i see. the higher weight classes in judo are to protect the poor bean poles and teddy bears from being flung around the mats willy nilly by the people my size. it all makes sense now.

    Hmm...charging money = McDojo

    BJJ =\= ordinary arts(hard training...low costs)

    You're digging a hole here ESL or not.
