Re: Locking/pinning as pain submission...
Yeah, often they pretend like they're controlling you by holding your neck with one of their hands... Can anyone say single/double leg takedown?
If an attacker is a bit silly/drunk and you cut their attack to take balance, often they may fall forwards, leading to the situation of them being on all fours. My understanding was that as they fall forwards, it's the perfect opertunity for a neck throw (read neck snap).... Assuming of course you don't mind snapping their neck - if you don't you're better off doing something else - but once's uke's weight is forwards and down, irimi is impossible.
