    I'm 145. Three guys I roll with are my size. The other 20 or so...are between 190 & 300. I found rubber guard to be pretty useful. It only gets me so far though. Nobody ever leaves their hand on the mat anymore :(

    Do you own any of Eddie Bravo's books?

    He covers this issue a number of different ways. Typically, you just pummel under the appropriate arm, then lock your elbow down and hold onto your own knee from within Mission Control.

    I end up fighting to get the overhook first most of the time, then getting the leg up. I have a hard time keeping my squeeze tight enough to stop people from pulling out and hitting the underpass on me without the overhook right now.

    You mean New York.

    The zombie is predictable though, if you aren't goign up against a large noob. I generally still have to work off other attacks and just keep an eye out for an arm on the mat, or a loose arm that I can zombie real fast.

    Your account of the spaztard was great. Fun read.

    I'm a small guy too 5'10 155 short legs and long arms, my body type sucks. The way I keep the big guys at bay is usually put them on their back and go REALLY sloooooowww. Don't play their game work on your takedowns or sweeps, STAY ON TOP! If you must go to guard, just like everyone else said rubber guard, control head, supervision. If you still have issues with spazwads tell your instructor about it they usually are pretty receptive about these things. I have to admit though I used to be a spaztard untill this blackbelt who I train under now, repeatedly crushed and dominated me until I became nice.

    Thanks guys just clearing a few things up.
    We are supervised but at the time we were rolling my instructor was rolling with someone and his assistant obviously wasn't looking when he did it, he's fairly devious. The thing that annoyed me was just how blatantly dodgy his technique was I mean I have been doing it a couple months and hes been doing it for over a year.

    He would reach behind to pull my feet appart asking for a triangle, he would always be hunched over me when he was in my guard, he'd have one hand on my abdomen the other on my shoulder. But the thing is when I went for my triangle, my armbar I wasn't quick enough practice makes perfect though. The thing is I dont know if he realises he is being a tool, I'll probably just talk to my instructor. Also my judgement of measurement height and weight wise is dodgy but this guys is big.

    Oh he also bends my fingers back that probably annoys me the most.

    to put things into perstpective im aorund 175-180cm tall and usually between 70-75kgs pretty pudgy I know :p.

    I find it odd that he has been doing it for over a year and doesn't know what a triangle to omoplata sweep feels or looks like.

    Bopinator,

    He's better than you.

    He will tool you...probably forever, unless he stops training for a length of time.

    You need to deal with that, and use it as an impetus for your own improvement.

    For some reason (I'm guilty of this too), small guys can get tooled left and right by skilled, little guys all day without copping an attitude. "Man, he's good!", "Wow, his technique is awesome!"

    Yet, the minute a skilled BIG guy tools a small guy, suddenly it's all about size. "He's a spaztard!", "He muscles everything!"

    SMALL MEN OF THE GRAPPLING WORLD, LISTEN TO ME!
    -We are short, skinny, and stumpy.

    -We fit easily into most overhead compartments.

    -We will forever be the Frodo Baggins to Aragorn's awesomeness.

    -We will ALWAYS have to work harder against even slightly large people.

    -Our size is OUR problem, and no one else's.

    -Therefore, QUIT BITCHING ABOUT YOUR SIZE! All it does is draw attention to how short, skinny, and stumpy you are.
