Well yes sure,you have a good point there. In fact I was generalising, and by no means should my argument apply to all possible situations.
However in situations such as beginners learning simple palm blocks, or punches for example, placing them with individuals twice their height might impede their learning since they would tent to aim punches/blocks upwards, rather than grasp the concept normally then progress to punching and blocking different types of opponents later on.
However at that stage, then yes, it is of utmost importance to provide variation.
As for the point that it is difficult to find people of the exact same stature...well EXACT no, but in the past with clubs of just twelve people I've been able to pair off everyone with a partner of his/her relative size.Be sure to visit www.martialartsguild.com
