We usually think big guys mean stronger guys and need to learn how to defend against someone how is bigger than you. When you see a smaller guy, you do not need to worry about that. What can he do? You can deal with him easily.

You might hear it before that never underestimate your opponent. Still, we do that without realizing that. If someone is good at fighting, he can fight with a big guy and beat him easier. A smaller guy can be faster and know how to hit and where to hit.

If you underestimate a smaller guy and get close to him, and shouting, he has the perfect opportunity to strike and make some damage. A small guy cannot reach you in a distance where you can reach him at the same distance. But when you get close to him, you give him the chance to attack you.

So always control the distance in a fight. When you are in a kicking range, you can kick. If you get closer, you are in a punching range. You can punch and at the same time, the smaller guy can punch or kick you. You can use the same thing that you usually use when you fight with a big guy.

If the attacker is good at footwork, he can move so fast that you fight it hard to strike and hit him. When you strike, he has already moved out of the attacking line. You also have to move fast to deal with this situation.

Some attackers like to do headbutt especially smaller attackers can headbutt you very fast. So be aware of that. If you see that he is about to headbutt you, you can use your elbow to stop him. You can stop him with one hand and strike him with another hand.

I have made a post about how to defend yourself against headbutt. To learn more about it, you can read the post. Please feel free to share your opinions in the comment section.
