The Judoka on tyhe list has to correct this.

Its 100% incorrect.  The key in Judo trhows is center of gravity. The small
creature has a big advantage with having a lower center of gravity.
Strength and body mass are irellevent, unless you don't know what you are
doing at all, in which case you arent performing judo/jujitsu, you are an
american wrestler.

As for mat work (holds and such) speed and agility are a lto mroe imprtoant
then size and mass.  A small person can hodl a big one pinned quite nciely
if they can get them into the right position.
