Smaller opponents can become big nuisances, especially if they have legitimate skills.

So here’s a 4:45 video with my top three tips for big guys who want to crush those smaller grapplers! Check it out:
Go forth and crush your enemies!
P.S. Here’s the link to the ‘How to Defeat a Smaller Opponent’ video on Youtube itself.
P.P.S.

Both are very good products, and there is very, very little overlap between the two sets.
