Travis Stevens' standing seoi

Ever since the great Toshihiko Koga retired from competition, we seldom see standing ippon-seoi-nage. One of today's players who does it fairly regularly though is the USA's Travis Stevens.

Here, you can see him throwing Georgia's Ushangi Margiani with a standing seoi that scores waza-ari. Not as dynamic as Koga's but still impressive nonetheless.

Notice how straight his legs are when he comes in. Standing seoi's are often done with straight legs.
