Re: Koshi Nage - Open Stance or Feet Together

It depends on the form, 2 baisc forms of koshi nage are head under or hips under (as taught in Iwama) with head under there is a wider position of the feet, here is an example of demonstrating where to align the body.

for the hips under its usually a smaller space between the feet as in this version
