Re: Would the Ikkyo pin work in MMA?
If you want to pin someone you can do it standing up, while they are on the ground, If they are in a prone position, stand on his forearm. it hurts like hell on concrete, vary pain level by moving your weight. Similar pin can be done on the leg, at the Ankle, knee, or shin. try it on the mat see what you think! it avoids a ground situation, which is bad if there are more than one to worry about.
