Re: Larger/stronger opponent

I guess I'm a little surprised at how dismissive people are being about the size issue.

Weight does give someone an advantage. If they know how to use that weight the advantage is even more significant.

By the way, if you can't deal with a large uke in kihon waza, good luck dealing with a large opponent who has the intent of actually defeating you.
