Re: What is the correct hand placement when do kote gaeshi?

Laughs - I should have been clearer. I was applying the kotegeishi using a combination of one of my hands and my forearm.
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.
