    There are a lot of good points made in this thread- pinning is dead sexy. And it's useful. But the one big tipping point for me that is often, the pin is a submission as well. Aside from the usefulness of crushing the wind out of some poor bastard with kesa gatame (eri gatame) and its kin, those are also nifty submissions.

    You'll find that in the base position, all those basics- getting your head down, spreading your legs, "walking" it in- they all set up a nasty neck crank. Switching your position to a belly-down position and doing the same "walking" around also adds a ton of pressure to the crank.

    Someone already mentioned that pinning should be active, not passive. That's exactly the right idea.
