Does sword fighting favor tall people or short people?

While we know that fist fighting favor tall people and gun fighting favor short people, I was wondering who does sword fighting favor?

We can use some Martial Art like Kendo.

  • Guns may favor smaller people
    since they'llbe harder to hit.

    But in martial arts, size is mostly irrelevant
    a bigger size means longer reach, but that's it.

    Unless we're only considering boxing, a fight won't
    be fought away from one another in such a manner
    that reach would matter.

    In sword fighting/fencing, reach matters more
    than in martial arts, since the fight will be fought
    at a certain distance from eachother.

  • Fighting has nothing to do with height in my opinion.

  • Well, I imagine that if a short and tall person swung at each other at the same time, the short person would be decapitated and the tall person would lose their shins.

    So, there's the instant death and then there's the agonizing crawl back to town only to be picked off by wolves.

  • Guns favor small people? Eh, maybe if you're talking about a western showdown.

    Consider that a soldier out on patrol is probably carrying 50 pounds worth of equipment, at least.
