one thing that teaches the "hip-turn-and-settle" is to move the outside (lateral) hand down with the pinky finger in the crook of their elbow. turn and lower the whole body with this hold. like atemi, this moves interest and attention away from the stiff wrist, but can be a very quick change from the basic technique. forearm "katate" gaeshi is very similar in all respects to kote gaeshi. in jiyu waza, relax and find whatever is there. use your own judgement.
