Hi everyone. Like I said on my previous thread, I am short, 5'5, due to a few years of corticosteroid overuse.

Something that keeps bugging me, is the fact that everyone assumes that a taller man will always beat the short one.

Especially since I was not meant to be short, and I still haven't made peace with it, I often see myself wondering how much does height matter in a fight. My reach is very short, now I know that this was all caused by corticosteroids. I have a 5'4 inches wingspan. Or 162 cm.

The thing that haunts me the most, is imagining getting beat up by a taller guy, in front of a girlfriend or significant other of mine.

Hence why so many women say height makes them feel safe.

I started working out recently and intend to take martial arts classes very seriously.

I am very interested in boxing, muay thai and jiu-jitsu.

Do you guys have any real example, like something you have seen, about a short guy easily beating up a much taller and heavier guy.

In my case, I think my maximum weight, being muscular and athletic, will be about 175 lbs - 79 kg.

I still wish my physical development wasn't stolen from me, I blame my stupid mother to this day, it would be awesome being 5'10 - 6'0 and over and bulky, like Fedor Emelianenko, Mark Hunt etc, but I can't change the past.

What do you think about all of this?

Thank you and sorry for any grammar mistakes.

Anyone who believes that shit is ignorant as fuck and knows nothing about fighting.  Height has very little to nothing to do with fighting, check out Walker Brown (not even a pro MMA fighter) knock out your typical narcissistic tall football clown who thought he was the shit and got his shit rocked!  Check out the second link of Roger Huerta knocking out this tall fat football clown

Actually, these guys are of similar height. Roger Huerta is listed as 5'9. The guy he knocks out in the video is listed as 5'11. I am talking about situations like that. https://youtu.be/jx0lv3u4WyY

Especially, if the guy is taller and heavier. Not lanky guys like those on the video I posted, but still, there is clearly a reach advantage for the taller guy, which I think is the reason the damage wasn't worse.

Sports always list their athletes as taller than they really are.  Watch the video, the football player clearly has like 5 inches of height on Roger.  Roger looks like he's 5'6" at most
