Pulling The Rug Out

Sunday, Peter did a really interesting class. We did a bunch of techniques from two different entries. Eventually we came to koshinage. He had us doing the garume version where uke goes across your belt line and your lined up pretty much perpendicular. We've done this lots before. What was different? Somewhere in the middle of the throw you start moving your weight from one foot to the other. Before that totally happens you withdraw the foot.
The affect on uke is that you go straight down. The ukemi feels more like something you'd take from an uki-gosh. Nage just disappears.
