It should be mentioned that shihonage is an extremely complicated technique, requiring co-ordination and timing that will generally be beyond you for years. At least in cases where you don't have a helpful compliant partner.
However, Ikkyo should be relatively easy to apply on your brother. Or Nikkyo, if you remember to make sure his arm is bent at the elbow.
