I believe it is the kote that is closest to you that is the valid target. So you can hit the right kote just as it has released grip but if the left hand is farther forward then it is the valid target. So at the time the right hand is on the do the left kote is where you would score a kote. A good kote on the left hand when someone is doing a katate waza is fun and sometimes gets him or her to loose the shinai.
