Learned a kool entry for shiho and ikkajo this past weekend. Ellis Amdur was teaching, and showed the sokomen step for both. As much as I've always liked sokomen, I don't think I've ever used it as an entry for these techniques. Way kool. Works like a charm, nice hip check atemi built in, negates the need to torque the heck out of uke's arm to "fix" them for the turning movement in shiho.
