    Need help: Rolling With a Big Fat Guy

    I'm pretty new to BJJ and I'm having trouble rolling with one of the guys in my school. The guy in question is probably 6'3" or so and weighs in the neighborhood of 300 lbs (mostly fat, not muscle). To give you an idea of what he knows, he's been doing BJJ for about six months.

    Every time I've rolled with him it's ended up with him just basically laying on top of me until I get tired and can't do much. I'm 6'7", 195 so I've got a slight reach advantage and I'm definitely quicker than he is but still I have yet to come up with an effective way to counter his significant weight advantage, short of throwing him a box of twinkies and choking him while his back's turned.
