Ukemi for hiji shime/rokkyo

A couple of years ago, one of the Sensei at my previous dojo spent almost the entire session on locks that affected the elbow... and then towards the end, he demonstrated hiji shime or rokkyo... needless to say, one of my elbows gave way and I had to go easy for a month on that elbow... ever since then, I've had hiji-shime phobia...

From what little I know, there are 'standard' ukemi for certain locks... e.g. for nikkyo, relax, bend your elbow and move towards tori's center, for sankyo, spin with the lock... these ukemi allow the body to accept these locks (i.e. ukemi), and in a way, mitigate the pain...

I would be grateful if someone could share the ukemi for hiji shime/rokkyo
