Re: Kote gaeshi: method of application

So how would you train to handle the throw 2:34 in this clip:

More on topic: I really dont see how the original question calls for an answer about lazy ukemi. Personally I feel that smooth waza with kuzushi is the way to go, If uke can make a breakfall on kotegaeshi he can also escape or counter the waza.
It looked to me like alot of flashy ukemi in that kotegaishi. Not saying that Nage didnt have perfect lead, but it seemed as though he only half applied the cut. So in effect, he didnt fully apply the technique and uke flipped over his own wrist because it looked good.

Or so it seemed to me.
