    Before we can go any further that should be covered in depth.
    Footwork, Footwork, Footwork. Working on cutting angles, and head movement. Basically working on how to dance in and out,using agility and head movement to create angles, and get out before the bigger guy can swing.

    IMHO One of the advantages of being the shorter fighter that never gets mentioned, is that a straight punch to the face or chin is a little more effective when its slightly upward from underneath compared to slightly downward from above. It rocks the head back more, creating vulnerability and whiplash.

If you have been training MT for a year and a half and they are teaching you to dance in and out of the pocket, not utilize the clinch, using head movement to create angles, and then you are telling people just to stand and kick how ever it works for them in a different thread discussing boxing and MT footwork (quoted below)...I am going to need some actual video to make sure we get on the same page because I have no idea what I am suppose to be working with here.

    Do bicep curls to make your arms bigger so you can punch harder.

    It doesn't how heavy you are in general so long as your arms are big.

    I expect Crafty would point you towards the experience of Lonely Dog, who is about 5'6" or perhaps a little shorter (I'm 5'8" and he's shorter than me - that much I know). His footwork is first rate, and is all about staying outside of striking range until you choose to enter. I'll be trying it out at the Canadian Gathering in two weeks, and I'll let you know how well it worked for me.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2M32B7BtxA not MT, and probably mainly applies to overcoming reach advantage, not so much weight advantage, but could still be helpful. (I reccommend the channel in general btw).

    general tips I've heard are to stay out of range until your opponent tries to engage, and close the distance as they do so. I've heard overhands are particularly good against both taller and stronger opponents. on the clinching side of things, if they're taller double underhooks tends to be pretty easy to get. they teach throws from double-under in MT right? I'm trying to think of something to help you against someone not necessarily taller, but heavier and stronger, but I personally struggle to do anything in that situation aside from pull guard, which is obviously not an option in MT. Just try to avoid clinching with those people I guess?

    edit: of course, against someone shorter but heavier it's always an option to try to avoid the clinch and beat them at long range.
