dont know if anyones still reading this thread. just wanted to say that what i have been taught is that in reality the wrist turn is actually the least important past of the kotegaeshi technique abnd that it is more important to make sure that you have control of the persons body by using the amr/hand/ whatever to guide their energy down and break the balance. the wrist is used as soemwhat of a safety guard in the end. but if you really need to get that done and someone clenches their fist, match your hand not with the closed fingers, but actually a little below that on the hand so that you are actuaklly pushing on the kuckles, push them forward correctly and the clenched hand will actually open up since, if done right, the pain will be quite hard to avoid
