Re: uke spinning out of shihonage

shihonage. this is how my instructor do it.

keep hands extended all the way. when you turn (omote or ura), uke's hands can't be over his/her shoulder level. too high, he/she spins off or he/she can pull you back. if uke is shorter, lower yourself more even if it means going down on your knees.

works wonders for me.
