Re: uke spinning out of shihonage

When I am working with an uke that I don't work with that often and he tries to spin out during Shihonage, I immediately counter with a kotegashe. Once they are over their surprise I lightly mention that we should really just work on the technique that Sensei asked us too...

But, since I am short, to stop that from happening I usually get in close which stops them from trying to spin.
