Kinda strange to explain. Basically I am 6ft 5 and 210lbs (15 stone ish) - Due to this height obviously I have a higher centre of gravity. When I look at shorter stocky type people I always feel they have a much firmer "base" and would be able to knock me over easier? (Not talking proper takedowns or throws, I mean just barging into me rugby style) Is this true? I have a friend who is only 5ft 7 or so and 12 stone so he's quite stocky, even with my extra weight I feel as though he has a much firmer base than I do with his lower centre of gravity and this is actually a benefit of being shorter? I am just thinking of a sports car (Mazda MX5 for example) and a van, the higher centre of gravity makes it more likely for the van to flip over under cornering. Anyone have and views / opinions on this? Are shorter people really more based with better balance?
