Christa Deguchi's Floating Elbow Morote Seoi Part 2

In my last posting, I highlighted Christa Deguchi's floating elbow style of morote-seoi. In this posting, I highlight another example of her unique style of seoi-nage, and this time she does it right in front of the camera.

In the sequence below, you can clearly see how her right elbow floats above her opponent's right arm rather than tucked under it, as would normally be the case for morote-seoi. Her approach is unusual but effective. Here, she scores a waza-ari with it.
