This is not the only way that Tissier Sensei teaches Shiho nage.

Have a look at this video for his basic teaching of the same technique:
We can clearly see he is not breaking uke balance before a throw. I was his uke few times for shihonage, so I could feel it very well. Instead, he introduced a ‘code’ – the way how uke must behave, so nage can practice his technique. That is his teaching. So in reality uke is jumping in the air by himself for fun and not because nage is creating correct conditions to do it.
