But I remember few years ago,I’ve eye witness a short little kid kicked the taller boy’s head ( at least 5 inc. taller),punches landed like strom on the big kid’s body, took him down and won the match in a very short period.
it just depends on skill
It depends on skill, but if you know how to use your height, you can use it as an advantage.
That’s a hard question. All other things being equal (speed, skill, determination, etc…) a taller fighter will have the advantage of reach over a shorter fighter. Longer arms and legs will let the taller fighter strike at the shorter one without putting himself in harm’s way.
Keep in mind, this is only an advantage if all other variables are perfectly matched between the two fighters. Chances are, though, that the short fighter has learned how to use his smaller size to his advantage.
its doesnt matter on how big are small u are. it depends on skill. big people might have a longer reach but a shorter fighter may have more speed when i was in tkd i was usually always the smallest person but i dominated
it’s depend you cant tell it becase sometimes the shorter are better more good than what you think.. be careful of short people.take care!!> anna <
It’s all about distance. If a smaller person gets the proper distance for his punches to land (this will be close to the big guy) then the bigger guys punches will be too far behind the shorter guy. The big guy can still hit shorty, but not nearly as hard as shorty can hit big guy.
Shorter people have to get over the intimidation of fighting the big guy and get closer to them.
My son is 11, and 65 lbs., his favorite sparring partner is 18, and 230+ lbs. When they fight, they are evenly matched because of my son’s speed and distance and the big guys size and power.
It takes time to develope this, but it does work.
It depends on the skill level of the fighters.
If they are equally skilled, the taller one has a reach advantage.
There are different training methods / strategies when fighting opponents who are taller/shorter than you. You need to know how to adjust your distance and also use it to your advantage.
In a contest between two equally skilled fighters, the bigger fighter will most likely win. Reach, angle of attack, and other tactical considerations relating to size give this person the advantage.
If the smaller fighter has learned to use his or her size to their advantage, and learned it better than the bigger one, then I guess they are no longer equally skilled, are they? If the smaller one is quicker, then they aren’t equally skilled either, are they?
The better question to ask, though, is that in a contest of equally skilled combatants, who will win? The answer, pure and simple, is the one with the attitude to win. In other words, how badly do you want it?!
A lot of people who ask these types of questions seem to be looking for some sort of reasoning for smaller fighters, due to training, being able to take out bigger ones. This is only possible if they are better. I am talking about skill level, speed, strength, etc.
Superior attitude (coupled with superior technique) will always defeat technique alone.
