Heres the situation, im 5 foot 8 and my dad and i have been having disagrements about this topic. He says that 5 8 is to tall amd apparently im goimg to be around 6 3 when im older. Is there a height limit?

Im 14 and sort of flexible.

I'm 14, sort of flexible, and 5 Ft. 8 In. too. Don't worry. It's not about your height. It's actually an advantage if you want to get up a tall ledge or something like that.

Dude you forgot a "," after plus.

Dude, you forgot a "," after "Dude."

That said, I'm 6', and have had no difficulty training, just stay in top shape, and you'll be fine.

Also the comma after "plus" isn't entirely needed. It probably should have been there but I was more worried on making it readable, not giving it perfect grammar

You might actually be too tall if your this guy.. http://www.thetallestman.com/images/baoxishun/baoxishun%20(8).jpg

Then again, you might be able to just step over walls.

I'm 5'8" and short.

Same here. ...wait, WHO ARE YOU CALLING SO SHORT THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE HIM WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS??!!!

Seriously, if you take out external factors, there aren't any height restrictions to human movement. If you've got legs, arms, and a head properly connected to a torso, you can move. It's not like they plan spots out with the average human height... well they do, but not so we can train on them. It's all about adapting your movement to the environment, it's what everyone has to do, being tall or short doesn't make it any special, it just means your movement will sometimes be different from others. Instead of vaulting a rail, you may be able step over it. Instead of crouching under a gap, you might have to dive through it.
The Great Way is universal,
it can apply to the left or the right.
All beings depend on it for life,
and it does not refuse.

Hey mate, listen to all of these guys.  They're all right (as far as I can tell).  I'm 15 and about 5 11 or so and I'm going to be about 6 &1/2 feet tall.  There are plenty of traceurs out there who are over 6 feet tall.  Your dad can't argue with that.
