Re: When Should You Turn Your Face Away When Being Pinned....?
I was told at one point (provided it is a good pin), that you are basically done for (by that person) and you should turn your head the other way to keep an eye out for what else may be coming. I'm sure it is a safety thing too though. When I first started, I kept my face towards nage. I had to learn to turn it the other way. From experience though, I find it more comfortable to have the pin done while I'm looking away, rather then looking back at nage.
