Koshinage is a dynamic and beautiful redirection of energy that doesn't really involve "loading up" or "removing a supporting leg," because the transition from attack to throw doesn't have a real stopping point in the middle where one should have to support uke's weight...
The best advice I ever got on koshinage was to think of it as moving through uke rather than loading and throwing. I only nail it once in maybe 20 throws but when I do it's smooooth.
