It's funny, I still occationally get caught by surprise by these...but mostly now I know it's coming, especially on shiho, so I just ensure I seize their wrist with a fourth control grip, so when they twist out of the shiho, I throw and pin with 4th control (4th ^ is generally safer with newbies than a really tight I don't tighten up on the shiho).

But 4th control can hurt some people a the newbies generally tend to take the shiho now.

I've found that Amdur sensei's version of shihonage (the one where you put their forearm on your forehead) goes along quite nicely, even with those trying to twist out of it.
