Hello there,

Is it true that because of martial arts training in early years (say upto 15), kids remain short?

All comments welcome.

Thanks.

Chris and Dennis have many hours of training since they were 4 and 6. Chris, now 18 is 6'1" while Dennis, just having turned 16 is 6'2".

Could be the style. Maybe TKD in Korea kept their mom a little shorter.

I started training when I was thirteen and 5' teen tall. I am now only 5'3" (0kay, okay... 5'2.5") So, it must be true!!!{hahaha}

Chetan, in all seriousness, alot of folks I know who started training young are now average height or taller. Alas... mine is case of genes and not dojo stuntitis.

David, That 5'2.5" hasn't inhibited your ability to headhunt effectively.
