I have a very long torso compared to my arms and legs. I am 6 feet tall and have 70 inch reach. I also have pretty stubby (but built) legs. This seems like an awful combination for MMA.
It seems like having long arms and legs is an advantage in both striking and grappling. Easier to catch submissions and easier to keep an opponent at distance when fighting on the feet.
So basically what I'm asking you BE, is does having a long torso have any advantages? Any at all?
All I can think of is that having shorter legs means my hips are lower and I might be more difficult to take down. That's it.
Plus a poll because why not.
