For smaller grapplers out there in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu world, things can be a little tricky when you enter competitions and step onto the mat to see that your opponent is a hulking figure, almost double your weight.Daunting, yes, impossible? Far from it.
It is not uncommon to see a shorter athlete combating a much bigger and taller opponent in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
