I'm a giant for competitive gymnasts. I'm about 5' 11". It makes things harder. No denying this, but it's still possible to do most of it. Are you going to see a guy who is 6' 4" doing a double twisting double layout on floor? Not likely, but you've still got plenty to work on that is totally doable. I've competed against folks that were 6' 4". These were NCAA Div 1 athletes. Not top tier Div 1, but competitive, which in gymnastics is still an outstanding accomplishment. Keep working at it, you'll get stuff, and you'll get much stronger and coordinated in the process.
