Re: Would the Ikkyo pin work in MMA?

my understanding is that the ikkyo pin is 1) a position where nage could attack/break the elbow, 2) to access your own weapon while controlling the elbow, and 3) a place where, in keiko, nage can test their kokyu and stability.

I don't think that the Ikkyo pin is designed to hold someone immobile but without injury for long periods of time.
