Hi Ahmad,

The throw you're describing seems to me like "hiji nage" or "tenbin nage." I guess you're right in saying that this technique could go "against the joint" as well as rokyo. Of course, the technique should work (as should rokyo) without the main point being the strain on the joint -- I've found hiji nage works a lot better when thought of in terms of breaking uke's balance...
