    I've been practicing a version of this throw. But rather than gripping the opposite lapel and attacking the opposite ankle, I've been gripping the same side lapel, pulling hard to get him to step forward with the leg on that side, and then attacking the heel of that leg.

    Is this a variation on the Kibisu Gaeshi ("Heel Trip Reversal") or another throw altogether?

    Wow, sry, I woulda told you that was uchikitaioshi. I used to do them quite a bit. Your description sounds more similar in the grips except I would try and bend him over where it almost seemed like a forward throw.

    I would just drive(rush) him and take his pant just under the knee at the 1st step.

    the way you describe is actually alot safer in reagrds to not getting you armbarred or triangled and lends to a quicker guardpass (though the inverted anklelock series is nice followup also)
