    ok, but then...

    do you feel your body frame is well suited/isnt to your preferred MA/training?

    do you think there is truth in saying "some body frames are more suited to this or that MA" or thats BS?

    being myself more an ectomorph, when I started grappling I found it hard, complicated and firmly believed the victory would always go to the heavier and stockier guy

    i went on and one day a bodybuilder, 105 Kg, got in the class to try

    the guy was on some kind of ****, or else he belongs to a new genotype not listed in the three (the ultra-mesomorph?)

    we did some ground work, and i managed to sub him pretty easily with an arm bar from the mount

    ok, he was clueless on the ground, absolutely no training

    yet he looked flabbergasted as how easily he had been owned by a lighter guy (not that lighter, im 87 kg)

    i ve been owned by lighter guys myself, so i guess technique and training does count a bit after all

    Meso - 6'-1" -- 225 lbs. I'd say my frame / muscle mass is well suited for any athletic endevour. I've been told I'm deceptively fast for a "big" guy. Size is relative though. One of my sparring partners is 6'-3" and weighs 250. The other is 5'-9" and weighs 180. They are both well suited for their particular ma just in different ways. The big one's background is Aikido and the smaller one is Shodokan. I train in Chu-Do which is a combination of traditional stand up with some ground techniques. I consider my size and strength to be an advantage in every fight I've ever had but I would never be so arrogant as to think I couldn't be beat by a smaller person with more experience and better technique (because it's happened!!).

    yet you have the desire to become meso, i.e. "changing bodytype"

    I'm about a 50/50 split between ecto and meso, I'm 5'6 and a half, 145lbs (used to be 155), I've always been cut and muscular and very well balenced. I'd say my body is very well suited for fighting because I'm very fast, strong and have a very high pain tolerance (thanks mom). My only real downside is suffering from borderline depression which causes me to lose weight.

    hmmm. I always wondered myself. When i was 15 I was a muscular 167 lbs at 5'11" and I didnt even worrk out consistently.
    I know my bone structure hasnt changed but I'm now a doughy 225 so I appear more like a endomrph. I guess if I got back to the the 190's I'd look like a mesomorph again.
