    I am 1.87 metres or just over 6'1", I weigh about 210lbs but that should drop back to 200ish now I am getting back into regular training.*

    The birth of my daughter has meant I have only trained about an hour a month for the last 8 months, it has also created a 15lb weight gain almost exclusively around my mid riff!

    Where's the obligatory "but BJJ takes height out of the equation" or the Kano stats?

    I'm amazed at how I perceive 6 ft tall people as small at times, especially if they don't have a broad skeletal frame. I think having trained in the past
    with beanpoles and beasts around 6'4" has warped my idea of what's tall.

    What? There are very few fighters under 170lbs who are over 6'1.

    Some of the shortest fighters I can think of are:

    Kid Yamamoto - 5'3
    Manny Gamburyan - 5'4
    Scott Jorgensen - 5'5
    Tyson Griffin - 5'6
    Sean Sherk - 5'6

    Most bantam, fly, and lightweights and even some welterweights are around the 5'8-5'9 mark.

    edit: I would describe between 5'8 and 6'ft as normal, above that and you are tall below that and you are short. So at 5'10 I would say average height.

    I was kinda drunk rambling. I think I was talking about skill/utilization of your superior strength. I don't even know.

    just don't tell Squirli what side of the "blow me" equation he would wind up on... average.... given his less than towering height stats.

    I don't know why but I always enjoyed launching tall guys with uchimata. It's like saying "size limitations for throws are totally ARTIFICIAL, bitch!"

    Being short(er) doesn't limit your game in any way from what I've found. I have more trouble with the like 2 guys than are slightly shorter than me than the tall guys.*

    *maybe not in judo
