Has anyone given thought to the technique not only being done irimi style, but also with a tenkan turn? With a forcefull, pushing uke, you can perform tenchinage while you tenkan. This will almost always result in uke taking a front roll or break fall.
This is one of the ki no nagare versions I mentioned earlier. I have also practiced a variant where tori steps back, little of the line to "draw out ukes balance" and then re-enters strongly with tenchinage. That version can also lead pretty easy into a high fall, mae ukemi or "ushiro mae ukemi" depending on how itīs done.
