Re: The shoulder grab - where does this come from

I was taught that grapping is a way to control the partner, so the shoulder grap is a way to control
your nage or uke´s body as well as the arm connected to that shoulder and as a consequence there are
techniques to counter graps that would othervise restrict your freedom of movement.
My two cents.. :-)
