Response to I agree with you
responding to this,
"I do teach Squatting Sacrifice, because it is a possibility - and just because it's something I wouldn't attempt (at least consciously), doesn't mean that it couldn't work for me, or work for others. The thing with this technique, however, is that they are not forcing you to bend over. You are doing that on your own. It's a what if to crashing wings - if the crash doesn't break his grip. I'm not saying you couldn't do this if they were pushing you forward and bending you over, but then you have a force against force idea and the stronger/bigger man will prevail in that circumstance, in my opinion."

1. If they are bending you over, what stops them from moving up in to a full nelson?
2. When I practice Crashing Wings my intent is not to just break their grasping hands but to isolate and pin them with my forearms. Same thing with Squatting, because, I don't want to manipulate my HWD in to another attack, like a full nelson maybe.
3. Smaller man, lower center of gravity. Bigger man higher center of gravity. There are soo many ways to cancel the larger man, be they striking or manipulations.Suppose the bigger man pushes you along as he wraps to the hug, trying to pop down in to the horse right away is not a good idea. Go with the direction of the attack until you can borrow balance from the attack and then hit that horse. This is the reverse of the foot work from Swinging Pendulum at the point of the obscure elbow.
Happily training on uneven, slick and unsure footing that messes with the attack and makes it Un-Ideal.
