The inward pressure needs to be applied right on the elbow joint, or above the elbow joint. If pressure is applied below the elbow joint, your opponent's arm can borrow your force, bend his arm, and ...

Any pressure on or above the elbow allows free motion to the entire arm and core, pressure just below the elbow allows sensitivity and control of whole body movement.

If your opponent can grab you , he can control you , unless you control them. Grabbing is a different question.
