In this video, a basic striking combination is used followed by a takedown. Gyaku zuki (cross), mawashi zuki (hook) and another gyaku zuki is used prior to the takedown. There are a number of variations of this takedown, all of which involve a means to off-balance. The leading arm following the punch can be high across the neck or lower across the torso. In this variation, I am positioning my right arm deep and across the torso. My right foot steps deep past the uke's rear leg. Although not required, I use my left hand to stick the uke's left leg to my left leg. Although it may look like I am lifting the leg I am using minimal strength. You should have a feeling of stepping through the uke's stance. If this takedown feels "muscled" you're doing it wrong. It should feel effortless. Happy training!
