Yes, I am quite sure.

A) it was clear that he meant to pin him that way.

B) the other uke simply did what the pinned uke could not do, provide a third arm and hand to free the other two. No manipulation of the shoulder was involved.

C) Dennis would NEVER demonstrate something that involved possibly damaging uke.
