Re: When Should You Turn Your Face Away When Being Pinned....?


Have you ever tried a "sit-out" from an ikkyo pin? I'm thinking of the traditional wrestling sit-out. Nage is taking you to the mat by your LEFT arm. You plant your RIGHT foot and shoot your LEFT leg and foot through under your own arm. From there you should be able to roll inwards to a takedown of your own. I'll give it a try in class tomorrow to see if it works - the idea just came to me as I was reading your post.
