    Default height

    I am tall, almost 6'3", and i was wondering how i can use my height to my advantage. Wrestlers on my team tell me i have a long reach.

    It also depends on your arm reach. If you have long reach you can use it to your advantage by trying to throw them off balance in a clinche by going for their ankle/lower shin bone (but be careful and have good form).

    Another thing, ankle picks, abuse them if you have long arm reach.

    Also, many times in a defensive situation you can use your reach advantage to grab their leg to put them in a bad position. I might be a little vague on this part, I can't explain it much.

    What is the height of your arm reach?

    That's what I've noticed when I wrestle taller guys. I'm only 5'8" and don't have as long an arm as some of the taller guys I go up against. Not all of them realize the advantage but I've had a couple that fully use their reach to screw me up.
