    It's a common beginner mistake to try to fix that initial position into the ideal hold they've been taught, but lose the hold in that transition. You won't likely be perfect, take what you've got, maintain pressure and fix it carefully if you have to.

    That's a much better way of describing what I mean. I don't mean I land in x position but because it isn't textbook kesa gatame I move everything. Just adjust my position slightly to make sure I am not out of position and easy to reverse/lose the position. But lets be honest, since I am still a beginner I am more than likely making beginner mistakes pretty often.

    Yes, throw-to-groundwork transitioning is painfully lacking in most grappling. I get the drop on guys there a lot.

    Thank you all for the advice. I got a chance to work this and a couple other issues out today in class.

    Edit: One issue I have had against more experienced grapplers--usually wrestlers--is that when/if I throw them, they bridge as soon as they hit the ground and end up in dominant position. Is there a good position to land in that makes this harder for uke to accomplish?
    They will eventually get injured doing that when someone keeps body contact and crushes them into the ground.

    If they end up in a dominant position (on top ?) then you did something not so good in maintaining control.

    In terms of "position before submission" it makes perfect sense. Pinning is all about control. Control is good, on the ground, in the air, and transition.

    My knowledge of the rules is certainly not referee level but isn't there something in the new rules about landing in a bridge position being considered Ippon

    Yeah, before if you bridged then you might get away with not having the ippon called. Now it won't stop it. It's one of the few recent rules I agree with. Let's all stop trying to break our necks to avoid losing a match.

    I also like that this is balanced with a rule addressing over-rotation. Now you have to aim that guy's back at the mats and plant it. If you over cook it, tough luck. If he tries to bridge out of it, it's no use to him.

    If only I could do a leg grab. Judo would be the bestest.

    Quoted for truth...the basic pin forms are there to show a specific principle of "immobilization" (oseakomi), and practice in isolation.

    Yes. Saw it in a tournament that we just hosted.
