hiriki no yosei/elbow power #1

this questions has bothered me for two years. I had all but given up on practicing it with partner because of lack of direction.

Here's my confusion: as the person performing the technique/exercise, do you move straight forward against uke's resistance? or do you glide along the periphery of his/her strength?

Over the past year (barring the layoff I'm on), I've been following the periphery. However, I just picked up Dynamic Aikido the other day, and Shioda Sensei appears to be driving through uke.

Please help.
