Try the direct Irimi Nage. I'm bad with Japanese words so I will just describe it. Get to uke's back. (IE. any irimi nage) and without spinning preform it by stepping through and to the back of uke. Taught correctly this technique works on just about anyone who commits to a strike or wrist grab. I also has 2 particularly nice benefits. It's hard to counter because adjustment is so easy and its fast leaving uke little time to react before he/she hits the ground.
