What do you get when you cross tenchinage with shihonage? If, instead of taking the down-hand down, you take the down hand high up over uke's shoulder (the closer one) you end up with a kind of shihonage throw over the close shoulder while still moving doing the over-the shoulder irimi-like move with the other hand. It's interesting but you really have to get that close hand high or you end up jamming into their shoulder and dissipating your energy.

We also did a low entry sumi otoshi, nikkyo and that fun, curl-around-behind sankyo.
