In jacket wrestling, if you don't let your opponent to grab under your leading arm, more than 75% of his throw will not work.Judo rules mean there are fewer places to defend, but it doesn't make the hand position entirely predictable,
This will not be an issue in no jacket wrestling. The question is, in jacket wrestling, when your opponent's hand gets a hold under your leading arm, the 1st thing that come into your mind is whether to:
1. get a grip on your opponent at the same time, or
2. break apart his grips.
I don't like the clinch situation in the following picture.
I prefer to tear apart my opponent's grips first.
While you are tearing apart your opponent's grips, and your opponent is moving with you, you can attack at the same time.
