Dealing with Shoulder Strikes

Hey all,

Firstly I'd like to say that this thread is run on the assumtion that you see the shoulder strike and have time to counter it.

What would you do to defend against such an attack? I have just downloaded a video from bullshido.com, and a practioner of Bajiquan uses shoulder strikes to down his opponent, I was just thinking what an Aikido responce would be to such a commited and powerful attack.

I was thinking something like a classical kokyu from a strong enterance, or similar foot work as kokyunage but with atemi.

Regards
