You know I *think* in principle we are agreeing....but what I suggest is that they RELAX into the pin in order to accept it and get the stretch. This also starts wiring the brain/body to stay relaxed under pressure whether uke or nage.

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
