Judo / Keith Morgan / Video Library > Parts of a Throw Video Length: 3min. 7sec.
In this video Keith Morgan breaks down the common parts of all throws, the posture/stance, the step in, taking the balance from your opponent and finally the throw. In Japanese:

Tsukuri - entry and body position

Kuzushi - breaking of the opponents balance (this is done with the entire body, not just ones hands)

Kake - finishing the throw

These components work together instantaneously to throw the opponent. Kusushi can be done in eight different directions.
