Also illegal. However, if you plant the foot just outside their foot as you twist them over it, thats a legal throw.

Exactly as WhiteShark stated, to encourage knee strikes (and elbows)

sasae is to the outside of the ankle not an inside sweep like a kouchi or an ouchi
Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

Still illegal. The point being that its a "sweep". For it to be ring legal in MuayThai, the foot must be planted. Mind you, depending on your referee, you may likely get away with it, but it is technically illegal.
1% Shark is better than you.

On the other hand in some organization's "International" or "Oriental" rules will include "boot to boot" sweeps. These ruleset usually don't allow elbows and are similar to K-1. Under that ruleset I've used almost every judo throw I know that makes contact below the knee and gotten away with it.
