Karate is a martial art that has its roots in a wide variety of different fighting systems learned by many people throughout time. These people have recorded there fighting methods or students that have trained under them have recorded them, in Katas. These kata bunkai (fighting applications) show effective and most often than not brutal techniques which are designed to end street confrontations as quick as possible.

Many times in various Karate Katas you see the following arm movements.
Sometimes as in Pinan Shodan above, the person performing is standing up right, other times bending down as in Kushanku.
True to the nature of authentic kata bunkai, Sensei Vince Morris demonstrates one possible and very practical throw from these movements which is taken from Kushanku. When performed at full speed and without the luxury of a padded floor the throw can be very devastating, and depending on where you grip your opponent it can be made a lot worse! For these reasons, if you intend to practise the technique, use extreme caution and never practise it at full speed.
