Over the years I’ve learned that there really isn’t a typical Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ for short) student.
Other sports require a very high level of natural athleticism or certain natural gifts to be successful. For instance in basketball if you aren’t tall, it is highly unlikely that you will achieve any serious success. However, BJJ allows people of all shapes and sizes to succeed using technique.
This is why in BJJ you can see a 150 pounder beat a 250 pounder. In competitions there are weight classes which match up opponents fairly.
