Stick your arms straight out at your sides and measure from fingertip to fingertip. It is usually the same as your height. Like mine is 67inches and I am 5'5 which is about 67 inches.

i thought u measured reach in centimeters from armpit to finger tip, in that case i hav a reach of 74.

Arm length is different from reach.

the finger tip to finger tip thing must be so wrong, ive just watched a tim sylvia fight so thats fresh in my mind, and his reach is 74", mine is more like 80 and theres no way ive got a longer reach than that mon

yeah that fingertip to fingertip isnt right
because someone with short arms but a wide back wide shoulders
reach would be similar to someone with long arms but small back.

armpit to fingertips is more accurate

Fight reach or arm length is done from under the arm pit to the end of the fist.
