Shime-waza if the person was comparable or smaller.
Just what I were thinking, you beat me to the punch again Peter. Aigamae/Gyakugamae ate shime waza comes to mind as well.

Gedan ate works quite nicely with a shoulder strike, with the arms down, they get pinned as you throw.

Also, a well timed shomen ate across the weak line would work well. In fact, we sometimes train to do shomen ate (without using the hands) in a similar fashion to that shoulder thrust in the video to practice the legwork and get the same degree of penetration. When the hands (sho tei) are applied, the range is increased while generating the same level of power.

All good in my book.
