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....
We do it in something of a peculiar way, but the same concepts you mention apply.

Ditto the "spinning out". The "peculiar way" I mention actually encourages people to spin out...and they can if you're trying to take it easy on them.
