I type this after giving your uke a standing ovation. Well done sir! :-)
All the best,
That looks like a real nasty throw!
In order to preserve your training partners, do you have any tips for preventing accidental injury to your uke? Aside from landing properly, I look at this application and feel that hyperextending the elbow joint could be a huge risk with the leverage being applied the way it is. It appears that you are pulling his arm to keep it straight rather than just sharply pulling down on the wrist (which would be bad).
Thanks for sharing your content with all of us! I'm really enjoying your stuff.
I'll admit I had the same thought, I can see a partner landing badly and there goes his elbow.
In a proper situation it's not a bad thing but in the dojo I do not think you want the habit to be dislocated elbows
We actually do a similar throw with the end of Kusanku, where you lift your juji-uke, then turn, then sink. It can also fit a sinking juji-uke in Chinto. It's a tough one to practice safely, but a very effective one. It shows up in HEMA, as well
If you do that technique quickly and with force on an unprepared person it might not be a throw at all. It might be that you'd just rip their arm out of its socket (just like a wookie does when he looses a game of space chess). Mean!
What an excellent presentation with an outstanding uke.
I would mainly just repeatedly drill the throw by fitting in and taking balance ( Kuzushi) and only finish throw a small portion of the time testing variations. If you drill with the outside underhook at the shoulder and break balance without stressing elbow you can add resistance but it's not a safe to throw with resistance.

I use Timben position all over the Kata but you're certainly right about Kusanku and chinto being obvious Juji Uke apps! :-) I made a couple extra videos to try to add some details and safer ways to drill but it's not really ever safe if Uke gives much resistance.
Ruthless throw! I really like it.
