    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I know exactly what you are saying - I was just curious if your instructors have implied that size and strenght don't matter because I have never heard a bjj instructor imply that (yet).

    the ironic part is the few times I have heard (in person) that size and strength don't matter - it's been from mcdojo instructors - not bjj instructors. I think anyone who trains 'alive' realizes pretty quick that size and strength make a difference - and BJJ trains 'Alive' (as do many other arts)

    of course.

    I was mainly making fun of the political dogma of the art.

    Will have many pple, BJJ guys as well as others, who will ride the "SIZE AND STRENGHT DON'T MATTER" Bandwagon will constantly site "ROYCE IN THE EARLY UFCs" Not realizing THEY are not Royce and he had been training the majoirty of his life not just a couple of months.

    I just got two Jiu Jitsu books in the mail, old ones from 1940s, and they say that the techniques will help in dealing with a larger opponent, BUT it goes on to say it is no gaurantee. One even states a larger stronger opponet who is similarly skilled will be very difficult to deal with.
