Shomen Uchi Ikkyo (aikikai style)

Recently I was practicing shomen uchi ikkyo with a person considerably taller than me (around a 8 inches - a foot).

During the first part of the technique (catching the cut at it's apex) I was having a lot of trouble getting my hand high enough to get the wrist or forearm. Are there any people out there who have had this problem? I was considering jumping but thought it better not to.
