This is a normal post oh and....
my scepticism comes from the whole if somebody is grabbing you, why dont they just let go and smack you in the face. from watching the video (yes all 44 minutes and 1 second) i get the impression you have to be quick enough for somebody not to realise what is happening and make their body react almost subliminally.

This is a normal post In all of the techniques I was taught the first thing you do is strike* - then apply the technique
* As the chief instructor - the late, great Tom Moss - said 'Just to get their attention'.

This is a normal post Attention? Or a distraction!
Nothing takes the mind off what you're doing to their arms more than a squishy nose.

This is a normal post i don't know how those techniques work in Aikido
they're descended from some Chinese martial arts stuff that is called qin na, which I have trained a bit. Before any of the fancy business starts in those grabbing applications, the person doing the technique traps the hand so it can't be pulled away (if that doesn't work people train other options). Its utility has to do with moving towards a more advantageous situation than you'd be in if you just wriggled your hand free. And yeah, it's pretty hard to do properly!
