Could you expand on this - I'm one of the confused.
Tenchi nage is usually first taught as a response to ryote dori. Nage moves toward uke in irimi (to the side) and one hand of nage goes downward and ideally behind uke. Nage's other hand goes upward and off balances uke upward before continuing behind uke's ear, similar to nage's arm in rimi nage. Uke is thrown backward.

Is this being named kokyu nage nowadays?
