1) Blend with the motion. I'm not trying to get attacker to comply with my preconceived "blending motion", but adapt myself to blend with this movement with the least resistance, without trying to block it, but keeping the space between us open with optional atemi-to-ukes-face with my other hand, until the movement is complete, and his arm is extended at that key point where the technique can go into shihonage/hijiate kokyunage.
2) At that point where the movement is complete, the arm which is on the uke's wrist is directly in front of my center, and I move it with my center to expose the elbow, at which point my other arm goes under it, and also in front of my center, at which point I drive uke's elbow into uke's head by simply keeping my arm in front of me and walking forward. Uke will be dropped "diagonally".
