Same here. And Kissomaru dealt with shihonage specifically in "the spirit of aikido." There's a lot to be learned about taisabaki and your centre line and taking ukes centre and so forth, so it's a good technique to start on because it encompasses a lot.

Actually, I've never had somebody let go, but I've had people spin out of it while I was turning....
