I find I use one hand to get the attacker's hand in the approx grasp I want, but the imbalancing and throw comes from my body movement and I use my forearm cutting up along uke's forearm to guide uke's trajectory and if possible by cutting up at the last moment to start turning him face down before his wt is on the mat.
Oh and yes. Everything is body movement and positioning. No argument there.
