Re: Would the Ikkyo pin work in MMA?

Aikido focuses on cooperative training. The aforementioned technique (and those similar to it) will work in a cooperative environment.

MMA focuses on competition. Their techniques will work in a competitive (non-cooperative) environment.

MMA practitioners are typically athletes. Their techniques will work on physically strong individuals with an arsenal of techniques and defensive skills.
