Re: uke spinning out of shihonage

The basic problem is that Maiko is not locking the shoulder.... if you don't "commutatively lock" the wrist, elbow, shoulder, spine, hip and foot, uke will be able to twirl out of the technique.

Basically, the "technique" needs more work. Although, being 6'3" is definitely part of the problem, especially if uke is shorter - shihonage is not designed to be performed on a shorter uke.
