Re: Ukemi for hiji shime/rokkyo

You can roll over your shoulder (the arm that is "locked") or, draw the elbow inwards towards your abdomen (this move comes from under the shoulder blades). The roll-out works quite "late" in the technique, the elbow-inwards must be done earlier.
Of course, if you allow the lock to be fully applied and your arm fixed and locked, then all you can do is drop - and depend on the forebearance/decency of tori when you tap out.
