I second the above. In my experience, when I've been thrown by Gleason Sensei, there's never any chance of escaping afterwards. He's always stayed very "connected" to me. Also, maybe take a look at some videos of his teacher, yamaguchi Sensei - people used to complain of how "sticky" he was - they could not get away. Gleason Sensei is great at this.
More interesting is that stickyness is a known quality and a known side effect of very specific training, so is heavy hands. Ya don't have to train for twenty to thirty years in "hopes" of getting it, and more than likely not at all.
