This guy gives an interesting critique on BJJ for smaller weaker people.

I'm a 265 pound blue belt. My 145 pound black belt friend handles me quite easily. It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog that counts.

Skills matter. You may start out "weak" but by the time you've promoted a belt or two you won't be. I mean, if you are small and weak, what are you gonna do? Take up Karate and expect to be able to defend yourself? No disrespect to Karate but faced with a choice of having to fight a small 5 year Karate guy vs a small 5 year BJJ guy it's a no brainer.

Alright but the point that guy was making is supposed you were a black belt also? How well could that 145 black belt handle you then? When two BJJ people are on the same skill level then weight becomes an issue favoring the heavier fighter.
