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:

Sorry, Sirc, my mistake.

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.
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.

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.
