About the can opener...
It's a neck crank, not scarfhold
Never said otherwise.
and it's a legit technique and not something that relies on muscling
Not true. It relies heavily on muscling. When was the last time you got someone twenty pounds heavier with it? The counter to the can opener is very basic and simple, which is why only bigger guys get away with this move.

I am pretty sure the books by Yuri Nakamura are out of print to be honest, but you can always look online for them used.
Here is a link to the first in the series - http://www.budovideos.com/shop/custo...cat=303&page=1
The picture on the cover is on of several locks from kesagatame using a neck crank in addition to the base lock being applied.

Are their tutorials on how to do this anywhere?
Josh Barnett has one on his catch wrestling DVD punshing rides
