Just like a 'real world' ikkyo may be more about a slight unbalancing onto the back foot and a little bit of exposure of the partner's back side, a 'real world' koshi nage may be more about how to make sure that, when you are in close, it is your hip that is under your partners and your legs that are under your hip. If you can get that much, throwing the partner over your hip may be a secondary issue.

Yours in Aiki
