Utsuri-Goshi is an advanced throw, which requires a change of hip direction. It’s often used to counter an attack like Harai-Goshi. Let’s take a look at how to do it.
What’s the difference between Uki-Goshi and O-Goshi and Utsuri-Goshi? It’s a good question to ask, and the difference, especially between the first two waza is easily missed.
With Uki-Goshi your throw with the side of your hip to the side, with O-Goshi you push your hips across uke and throw forwards, whereas with Utsuri-Goshi you first lift uke upwards as if you are going to throw them backwards, uranage style, then you switch forwards into O-Goshi.

Uki-Goshi – make contact with the side of your hip and throw off to the side.
O-Goshi – turn in and push your hips across your partner, throw forwards.
