Re: Is this Koshi-nage?

That looks like a sleeveless version of a judo hip throw called sode tsurikomi goshi usually done with a sleeve grip (sode is sleeve).

The animation is from the list of techniques on

It is very common in competition judo. This is a compilation of former World and Olympic champion Toshihiko Koga. There are about 5 dynamic sode tsurikomi goshi throws in a row from 2.45. He used to do the throw as a complement to seoi nage so his execution for both is similar.

It is a common aikido koshi nage too although it might not look exactly like that.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
