A Tai-Otoshi Counter That Simply Works: Ko-Soto-Gake

I don't mean that to sound derogatory in any way. I am genuinely impressed that people can come up with such elaborate techniques.
I'm also not saying that these elaborate Judo throws don't work; most of them probably do. But they hardly fulfil that "maximum efficiency for minimum effort" category.
I'm not a person who likes complicated. Not only that but I find the simpler a throw the more likely you are going to be able to practice it to the point it is both effective and efficient.
