Shihonage Ukemi

Yoshinkan is generally known for it's effective judo-influenced ukemi. Within the Yoshinkan, however, I have seen two completely different ways of taking ukemi from a shihonage pin.

This first found here at the 0:20 - 0:30 mark:

The second here at the 0:24 - 0:28 mark:

Which do you think is the better approach for safely taking ukemi from the shihonage pin at full speed - and why?
