Kosotogari

"Small Outer Reaping." This is a member of the 2nd Kyo of techniques and is a foot technique.

This throw and Tai Otoshi make a pair.

As your opponent is stepping forward with his right foot, you pull with your left arm and pivot in, bringing yourself close in front of your opponent and to his left side.  If your pull and pivot successfully breaks your opponent's balance to the front then the throw to do from this position is Tai Otoshi.  However, in the case of your opponent pulling back and resisting your own pull you bring your right foot around behind your opponent's left foot and sweep it forward (in the direction the foot is pointing).
