When you see someone being pinned from one corner of their body, I would propose, you are viewing, at best, an unconscious application of a training culture (i.e. a kind of ignorance in and of itself). Let's remember, it is a basic principle of Aikido waza that one should be able to move at all times: If someone has control of one of your corners, move your other corners, and then that person won't have control of that one corner any longer, etc.
If you have gotten hold of one of ukes corners, and they try to move the others, isn't it possible to just move the one corner away from the others again, so that they loose their balance again towards the one corner? Or is this something that is not "allowed" for the purpose of this discussion?
