Thank you, now that I see this technique in all it's glory, I feel that it would be much better to get the attacker into this position....this fellow is 'open' on every conceivable side....!!!!

As for the randori, I'm so slow that my ukes try to be nice and really slow it down for me... thus zombie shomenuchi, etc...

If they breach that space with their entire body, no striking attack, give 'em a big hug! Hugs are powerful, they either dissolve the attack, or they can drop the attacker on the floor. (Take it as a figurative concept. I don't think I'd recommend hugging a two-hundred-fifty pound, drunk, knife-wielding, jagged-toothed, body-pierced, schizophrenic.)
Amazingly, the hug can be a very good response if you are trying to settle things. I was in a bar with my friend and he got in an argument with another guy there (not very sober), and it turned hostile. Then he just extends his arms and says - "Relax, let me give you a hug and we'll work it out", and goes ahead and gives him a full bear hug! The look on his opponents face was totally incredible he had no idea how to react and just muttered something. All the hostility was gone. I dont know the psychology behind it, but it seems to really mess with a guy's head. And yea, he was about 240 lbs, drunk and had some teeth missing. But no knives or body piercings
