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.
Sensei Amdur, so do you draw your arm in and then make the rolling breakfall? Does that make it look a little like shiho nage?
