im reli short. and im progresing quite fast.
being short gives you a massive advantage in strength to weight ratio. so you can lift your self very easly when you get strong. wich meens you can jump far because your light for your strength and you can climb up fast. also alot of gymnasts are short because it makes fliping easier...

you can see some of my vids on youtube if you wanna see how i deal with it.. oh and il upload my holiday video with my little bro in it. hes tiny and he is amazing

Tall and lanky people are normally more clumpsy and run really dodgey.

Its less about height more of power to weight ratio, I have the disadvantage of having less developed muscle, extra fat (booobbbies) and being small and it really hasnt affected me much. Its always been to do with how much training, conditioning and mental strength you do. Although ive been training as long as most the guys I train with im not upto their skill yet, not to say I wont but it takes time. Ive got a lifetime ahead of me and theres no need to rush things.

You just work around your body type I guess, I love level arm jumps and ones with little height difference, but I find high arm jumps very difficult. I know that Jin and Owen and Jason all have different strengths because of their body types. Seb F is about my height and hes awesome.

In this topic though there shouldnt be concerns anyway, im 19 and have throughly stopped growing. Guys can keep growing upto age of 21, so especially if your 16 and under you shouldnt be worrying yourself. Although its good to take a good look at your parents, thats your best way of estimating where your going to end up.
