You do not have to have a firm grip on your partner's wrist. You can use tegatana and similar cutting movements if thumbs hurt or grip is weak.
All this and... the only reason to grab in the first place is because you're planning to push or pull. And in Aikido, both are wrong.

Evolution doesn't prove God doesn't exist, any more than hammers prove carpenters don't exist.
