Lots of folks' first reaction to something like a sankyo is to try to grab at their hand if they can get there. With a finger sticking out it's the first thing I'd go for myself if I could. Fingers make great motivators.
Yep. As a person with small hands myself, I've been taught that sankyo can be very effectively applied just by holding uke's pinkie...darn if I want to offer the gift of a "handle" myself!
