Speaking of reach...

How do you properly measure your reach?

Cool, thanks.


Where about in your arm pit? Middle? Closed fist, at the end of your knucles?

That's how they do it in boxing, I don't think its the same in mma. If it is some of the fighters would have their arms dragging along the ground going by their stats. I think they use wing span... finger tip to finger tip.

Yeah.. I was woundering, I measured myself, and got a total of 50". I'm 5'9, and it seems the average MMA fighter of my height had a reach of at least 60"...
