I was having a "bad day" on the mat and a strong uke came down on me like a ton of bricks with a shomen. As I found myself about to get over powered, I realized all I hand to do was step in and throw him koshinage. His strong downward strike helped me drop my center and actually made the technique work. (great reverse out of ikkyo too). Is koshi a great "plan A?" No, but it is a great place to move on to.
