Would you consider the Army combatives system to one of the most effective for fighting larger opponents? I would imagine that soldiers have to train to engage the enemy without regards to size.

BDP, He was asking about body size, not just the size of your cranium.

Difficult question to answer. The techniques definitely allow you to use leverage to counteract a larger opponents power. However, if said opponent is stronger and equally technical, you're fucked. I still think in many ways that this is one huge misunderstanding people have about combat arts in general: Once I get technical I can kick a guys ass no matter what. Wrong answer. However, to answer your original question, I think it is an effective way to deal with larger opponents.
