Re: Shihonage Ukemi

Neither - if either of nage in the two clips had turned out, perhaps half-way through the technique, intending suddenly to break uke's arm, uke could do nothing about it, because he is committed to taking a back fall. Uke should turn towards nage, with his head against his own arm, "intending" to take a forward roll/tobu ukemi. IF and only IF tori clearly does a shihonage without bridging the arm, uke can then "sit up" into a back ukemi.
