Re: Kote gaeshi: method of application

I practice it in the 2nd way you described, where you have Kuzushi and you lead and cut and uke falls as a result of your throw. And then after he is on the ground you decide what to do with him.

But if he has a knife or is using deadly force/ intent (assuming i am lucky/ fast enought to be able to gain control of him) then i would just go ahead and snap his wrist and sweep his legs out from under him; and pin him and then call the cops; or just leave.
