Fierce Tamura seoinage

Many people, when they think 'judo' think about the shoulder throw, seoinage. Although this type of takedown is common to pretty much all grappling styles, folks seem to especially associate seoinage with judo.
I was sifting through YouTube looking for a good example of seoinage for a post in my series of the nine core throws in judo, when I came across this video. This is merely an okay example of seoinage - when it comes down to it, with a resistant opponent of this level, the throw will not look like the throw you practice in the dojo anyway. But what caught my eye was the fierce persistence of the thrower as well as the awesome attempt by the opponent to avoid the loss.

How would you like to have that happen to you on concrete!?
