I've actually seen this before... in myself. lol I'm a little
When I started I stood my ground into the pain. I even went against the force at times. I thought I could find a way out by going towards and over it.....nope, had to go away from it.

Actually, you can find a way out by going towards it.. but usually when people try, they are pushing with their upper body, which increases the pain and accelerates tori's lock.
If you move your feet instead, you can get different results. Difficult to describe, but easy to show and reasonably easy to teach depending on the student.
