Re: Would the Ikkyo pin work in MMA?
I dont think it is to do with the waza, but more how you train the waza, and how you train in general. If you are going to fight in a competitive, athletic environment, then you need to prepare for that i.e randori, conditioning etc. People lose fights, waza dont.
Specifically speaking in regards to ikkajo (is it really just a pin?), for example think two on on in wrestling, that is a variation of ikkajo.
