One "Martial" way to think of Koshinage is as atemi. You shoot the hip into uke to impact then you throw after you upset the balance. I have had great "blended" koshi throws with a cooperative nage but for those obstinate ones....impact with the hip into the groin first, then throw. Impacting the groin area with the hip also helps uke get underneath nage and consequently gives nage a reason to raise up the slightest bit to try and avoid the impact.
