Greetings, apease,

If... if... it is any consolation (at all :) ... you should know that it isn't
a matter of size... or brawn... that gets any of us through this particular
thicket. (Otherwise, no Gurkha or Maylay (and I've known a few) pipers. :)

Rather... and what ever your (or anyone's) size... or physique... it
is a simple matter... of technique... (Rather like being the smaller
fellow... in a Ju-Jitsu tournament. :)

Just stay in the ring... and KBO... and it will come!!

All the Best!!
