I'm five foot tall so I have the exact same problem, I found good head movement and keeping low to be key (lets face it...I'm five foot tall, I can't do much BUT keep low). If he's leaving the arm out, lunge and duck under using your head movement and attack the body.

There are plenty of MMA and boxing fights you can research to see how they close the distance on their taller, longer opponents.

You'll need to be brave, get your head down and go for it
