    I tapped out my first adult Lol. Finally after 3 months of training :p. IM 16, 137 lbs. I do fine against those my own size but in todays class i finally tapped out an adult. Around mi pa's size so like 205-210 lbs. He has 3 stripes on his white. I saw and opening and went for it. I wasn't expecting him to tap... but then he did. I was like" Huh whats he doing with his hand.. he couldnt be tapping.. Oh crap hhe is!". Then let go :p

    That is one of the advantages of grappling vs striking. Most teenagers your size could not trade blows with an adult, but with good grappling technique... you can tap an adult. Congrats.

    I am 19 and taped a 80 year old! :p
    Joking, congrats man, funny goal, but if it works for ya go for it. I say you should focus more on tapping anyone with a belt higher than yours, than worrying about tapping adults. Dont let me put ya down though, I give you your props. +10 Cool Points.

    But your name is "I love shamrock," so I guess it all evens out.

    I trained striking a lot when I was a young teenager. I have always been skinny. I sparred adults a lot and did fine.

    Just like how strikers tend to think grappling is nothing but strength, grapplers tend to feel the same about striking. In reality, speed, accuracy, timing, and technique are WAY more important than pure strength in striking. Using the above, I was able to hang with adults much stronger than me in striking when I was a young teenager.

    In both grappling and striking, technique and training makes a huge difference.
