Re: Powerful

Strength is not a disadvantage, but it is easy when training to utilize muscular strength to overcome poor technique. It is better to first gain the ability to do the technique properly with the least physical exertion possible, and then use the strength when it's needed. As a big guy, you'll encounter more problems learning to move properly if you try to muscle people around. And remember also that there are differences between strength and power.
