    Mass times velocity squared. More mass to begin with, more kenetic energy for same speed. You could even calculate how much mass makes up for how much less speed I suppose. Speed and Power.

    Then you have the issue of dispersion of the kinetic energy. Is it focused on a vector into a a target, or does the energy leak out through structural flaws, and then how much so? A more efficient delivery means less kinetic energy required for the same results. Technique.

    Muscle mass is not a generic commodity. Not all muscle is the same, and hulky dudes aren't always stronger than lithe guys. (I'd love to see Uki and Dale arm wrestle, but the two would probably spontaneously combust due to all the chi...)

    Big is relevant. Bigger than you? Smaller than you? Sure size is one of the key attributes to being a good fighter, but like any disadvantage, you can work with it.
    Still, nothing more satisfying than beating a guy bigger than you....

    Right Sanjuro?
    You got that right !

    As for size and speed, we all see how slow those running backs are, how slow Tyson and Lewis were, how slow 100 meter runners are.

    lol you can still move extremely fast being a big man

    ive had no speed issues and the guy who taught me tkd and goju was even faster than me and he was 280 pounds!

    It comes down to pure simple physics.

    Speed + Mass= Power

    If you get an object with a larger mass moving at speed, it is going to have more power output than something smaller with less mass moving at speed.

    So all the little sticks who think they can create more power by moving faster, are not going to be able to create as much power as someone larger.

    Hence you will NEVER see any lightweight knock down or knock out a heavyweight.
    Mouth Boxers have not the testicular nor the spinal fortitude to be known.
    Hence they hide rather than be known as adults.

    You do know that muscle bulk adversely affects your reflexive speed, right? You could argue that it doesn't, but the evidence would strongly suggest otherwise.
    Of course, I suppose Yin Fu's, or even Ma Gui's skinny little frames likewise kept them from achieving a truly high level of martial skill..must all be fairy tales..lol. Hell, even Tat Mau Wong and Lai Hung's (the only fighters, btw, to beat the Thai's at their own game) fighting reputations are probably blown completely out of realistic proportion. Yeah, we'll go with that..lol.
    Anyway, got bored, checked the threads, and decided to comment. Wow..you sure are preoccupied with someone you claim to have absolutely no vested interested in or respect for..lol.
    Again, good for you! Applause!..lol.
    Please..
    observe! Clueless jibba jabba.

    besides all the whining about how Dale has owned you and would crush you, because he would, you go on to make remarks about people who fought in weight divisions and under rule sets that can barely be remembered and are entirely irrelevant to the content.

    None of the people you mentioned ever fought in any venue that is typical of today's sportive combative.

    You claim to have fielded fighters but can't name any. Or get corroboration. You get called on the crap in your website and you take it down. You then claim you're making another one. You'll get called on that too and take it down, so why bother.

    Fool, you better learn some boxing and stop trying to rip people off with some notion that you can actually teach anyone anything about martial arts.

    so come on back and whine and rant about what I'm saying, but it's true.
    You need to seriously stfu and seriously practice some martial arts because you are gonna need em with a mouth like yours all the names you drop and all the connections you don't have.

    forrest gump was right, stupid is as stupid does.

    now retort oh assless one. lol you know you need to.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    LOL

    but still it proves a point

    i never believed size automaticlaly equals power

    ive met big guys who couldnt punch for **** and ive met smaller guys who had freakish strength

    personally ive always thought smaller guys USUALLY make better fighters( before anyone jumps on this im not a small guy im 6'2 and 230 pounds so im not defending my fellow wee people)

    i think most often big guys tend to be very lazy and dont develop to their full potential

    and many of them think just because they are big they can kick ass

    case in point the video i posted

    that big fella was being so c ocky during the announcements he really thought he had that fight in the bag and he got a rude awakening

    actually that whole card was like that

    america sent quite a few big guys in that tournament and they got destroyed by a much smaller igor vovchanchyn

    Size = reach and THAT in of itself is a huge issue.

    When I competed in kyoksuhin I fought in no weight limit categories ( typical of kyokushin) and limited ones ( Under and over 200Lbs).
    I was only 140-150 at the time and at only 5'-6", it was quite the task fighing guys full contact that were 4-6 " taller at times and in some cases 100lbs heavier !!

    oh i agree size IS a great thing to have no doubt at all

    however as that vid i posted proved it really doesnt do much to strengthen your jaw lol

    you can be as big as you like but all it takes is one punch or kick and your done

    Well, lucky punches aside, you will find far more clips of big guys beating on small guys than vice-versa I'm afraid.

    i agree but on the flip side ive seen more than enough go the other way to the point where it would make me realize it would not be a good idea to waltz into a fight with a smaller guy thinking my size alone is gonna win it

    my experience sparring with smaller mma fighters has helped form my opinion on this subject as well


    as far as lucky punches go i dont really believe in such thing as a "lucky punch"


    anyway im off see ya guys!

    True, but it's why the little guys had to learn tai chi, so they could redirect the force "of the freight train runnin' them down"... That and a little Parkour

    size/fight

    Old saying: It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog. Determination often overcomes resistance. We have all seen it and most of us have stuck out in tough parts of training in our past to understand this.
