Stumbled across them a month or two back on youtube user Jesusjudo's channel, it has tons of magnificent videos, Yamashita in comp, loads of top level Japanese demonstrating throws, kashiwazaki seminars, no gi stuff basically the works:
They are fantastic videos of Koga, I own the Fighting Films Koga dvd and I think if translated into English these youtube videos would actually be better teaching tools for seoi nage than the New Wind dvds, which in my view are more exhibition dvds of Koga's unique methods than teaching dvds for the basics.

I am impressed how low they can be pulled off I learnt my throws mostly upright.
That is a good idea.
Be aware that if you grab the belt and pull/lift,it's no longer O Goshi, but Tsuri Goshi. Two different principles involved, but both are good hip throws.
Typically, what I see in judo shiai is Tsuri Goshi, not O Goshi, but in that case it doesn't really matter other than academically.

Do you have a link to those New Wind vids? I would love to look at them.
Not to steal any thunder from Josh but this is bad, bad, bad. Probably will work against beginners or someone unfamiliar with grappling and throwing but anyone with any feel for grappling will absolutely crush you.
If you turn in for a throw and step back while someone has any sort of grip on you they now own your momentum. If they don't do anything you can probably complete your throw as you've experience. If they push on you, pick you up or pull you backwards you will fall down and be unable to do anything to stop it. This is a huge, huge bad habit and you should beat it out of yourself if you want to throw effectively. Uke needs to be pulled to you or else you are at Uke's mercy.
