    Yeah, when we're talking about resisting a technique (as in purposely trying to stop it from happening) all that is part of the toolbox. And as I said before, it can also include relaxation, which doesn't provide a force to borrow.

    It doesn't matter relaxation or not, as long a there is body contact, the clinch can be established.

    Oh, I agree with that - I was commenting on your statement that if the resistance includes contact, you can borrow their force. As long as they commit some force, you can borrow it, but relaxation doesn't commit force to borrow.
