Sorry for my bad vocabulary.  

I see it occasionally.  Lapel grips or body lock.  The attacker hooks a leg and pushes the uke over.  I've seen a couple variations 

- leg steps between uke's legs and reaps the back leg.  I think that's O Uchi Gari

- steps in the middle and reaps the front leg.  I think that's ko uchi gake 

- steps in the middle but the attacker reaps with their back leg by wrapping around from the outside in.  I've seen this but don't know what it would be called.

Gari and Gake mean two different things and the throws kind of have a different action.  I think the first one is Kosoto-Gari which translates to Minor Outside Reaping Throw.  Ouchi Gari translates to Major Inner Reaping Throw

Ouchi-gari, not necessary the back leg if opposite stances. 

Kouchi-gari, not necessary the front leg if opposite stances.

Thanks.  My 8 year old daughter does this all the time in BJJ.  She calls it her "hug trip."  Not something they teach in class yet, just something she came up with but I knew there must be a real name.

A lot of them come down to timing, I mean all Judo techniques do but these are specializied.
