I was doing kote-gaeshi on a beginner the other day and we ended up staring at each other in a bemused fashion. It struck me that uke throws himself for this technique.
I would like to take this one step farther and say that in ALL nage-waza, uke throws himself. As said before on this site and others, ukemi is not a choice, it is a demonstration of GRAVITY.
