I'm with Jim on this - "Be aware of your ukes weapons". If he can touch you with the other hand, without making it immediately much worse for himself, then there is a problem.

Uke shouldn't be about to touch you at all in kotegeishi or shihonage. IMHO, if he can, then its not a 'variation', its just plain wrong.

Wrong is not always bad, though.

If one makes a distinction between the dojo and the battlefield, or being in your bedroom or in public, then when the time comes there will be no opportunity to make amends. (Hagakure)
