- math/Right triangle trig -
**Steve**, Tuesday, November 22, 2011 at 10:42pmIn a 45-45-90 triangle, the height is the same as the width.

So, the opponent cannot be over 85 inches tall. No problem; that's 7'1". That's if he plans on blocking the kick with his head . . .

Of course, what it really means is that the opponent cannot reach any higher than 85". Someone in the 6' height range can usually reach up to about 96 inches high.

So, our player needs to be somewhat shorter: about 65" or so.

And, that's assuming he isn't going to try and jump up to block the kick.
