You know, after reading Mike's post ... if I'm reading it correctly, sounds pretty close to how we practice at our dojo. Except that I wouldn't say that we throw down so much as up (then, down becomes easy). Uke's momentum or attempt at gaining back their balance is what can cause them to be "projected" away.

Yes, that could be included in what I said.

Afterall, there are only two motions in martial arts: up and down. Every other motion is simply derived from these two.

Look at any Daito-Ryu throw and you will see this.
