Hi Ron,

The versions of kaitenage I am most familiar with actually throw across uke's shoulders (I believe this is the horizontal componant that Jun refered to).
Not quite.

I guess the "hand/arm to uke's opposite shoulder" is like a car rolling sideways (eg from one passenger-side door, the roof, then the driver-side door, then the undercarriage). You can, of course, also spin the car front over back (eg front grill, the roof, back bumper, then the undercarrigage) as well as in a spin (like you might get when you speed up in a turn on an icy road).

I think a good kaitennage involves all of these components...
