It belongs to the fourth group, Yonkyo, of the traditional throwing list, Gokyo-no-Nagewaza, of Kodokan Judo. It is also part of the current 67 Throws of Kodokan Judo. It is classified as a hip technique, Koshi-Waza. Utsuri Goshi is also one of the 20 techniques in Danzan Ryu's Nagete list.

Danzan Ryu's version of Utsuri Goshi is different from Judo. Uke foils tori's O Goshi by jumping over tori's hip, which tori then re-counters by catching uke into a Harai Goshi. [1]
