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

Personally, I think the goal is to take the slack out of the wrist, which then allows you to control the elbow, which in turns connects you to the shoulder, then the rest of the body. You shouldn't be torquing the wrist as a mechanism to do the throw. Once you connect, you can shift their balance where you want the person to fall.
