In our case the kuzushi is often achieved with a small body shift while both bodies are connected. The movement being small enough that uke does not perceive the unbalancing until it is too late. So small kuzushi with the body shift, followed by the throw, which amplifies the kuzushi with a larger movement after the initial unbalancing or degradation of uke's structure.
