That was pretty good!

I wrestled a match in MN years ago and the guy killed me (not unusual) and I asked him what he was doing.  He said, he was freestyling, just making it up.  That's what you do in freestyle.  That was just an incredible demonstration of awareness to turn that into a throw.  Can you teach that?

Yep.  It's basically uchimata, from Judo.  You'll see something similar here, at 1:30.

The problem I have with teaching counter-throws is not so much getting athletes to do them, but getting them not to do them.  If you can get an athlete to keep good position, work to prevent the attack from progressing, and then, when that fails, pull out something like this, you've accomplished a lot.  The tendency is to start to really like such toys, and want to play with them.

Far side whizzer is what's I've always known it as. Yes it's taught and it's effective defensively. If you miss the mule kick you usually wind up in a situation where the offensive wrestler will try to force a leg to get the td.
I always bring my hips to the party.
