Shrimping escape from munegatame

Here's some of Steve Scott's guys demonstrating the shrimping escape from munegatame.  This is not one of the fundamental escapes that I teach beginners, but more of a branch or variation of the bridge&roll escape that I covered the other day.
.
Notice that the first 5 steps of the recipe for this escape are the same as for the bridge&roll, but then, once you've shrimped away from uke, what if he does not pile back into you for bridge&roll?  Well, if he just hangs out with that huge gaping hole between you and him, stick your knee in the hole and move into guard.
  1. feet tight under your butt and elbows close as possible to your chest.
  2. bridge with both feet straight up to create space under you.
  3. turn onto your side, facing uke
  4. bottom elbow under uke's hips and top hand over uke's shoulder
  5. shrimp 2-3 times directly away from uke while pushing/holding him in place
  6. turn your knee in  and shrimp or scoot or pull into the guard...
